“This shows how the involvement of experts with disabilities from the very start leads to a significant improvement in accessibility for all kinds of impairments.” Stig LANGVAD
The office building takes the accessibility needs of all groups with all kinds of impairments into consideration and represents the inclusion of accessibility as both concept and ideology. The future users were involved in the process from the beginning; therefore, many elements included in the building are user-driven innovations. A key output was the creation of comparative advantages and role-models for the building sector in the future on a broad scope.
Constructing buildings in an accessible way often focuses on only one group of persons with disabilities. Including sustainable materials at the same time is not a natural step and their use is often sacrificed in order to make the building accessible.
