OLGA G. ALVAREZ, ASID, IIDA, CAPS, LEED-AP ID+C, EBOM
Universal Design & Sustainability Consultant
Registered Interior Designer (RID#149), serving clients in both the commercial and residential markets.
Universal design is a key element for those that want to age-in-place no matter what mobility challenges they may encounter. It’s not about being old or handicapped, but about performing everyday tasks without impediments. Our interest in Universal Design stemmed from challenges faced by our own family members which required the re-design of their existing living spaces.
