AIP Designs Metro BCA award 2016

Our award-winning bathroom was designed for a Garwood resident who has multiple sclerosis (MS). As part of our process, we examined our client’s use of space and how he functioned within that space. Doing so made sure that we could put every nook and cranny of the bathroom to work for his safety and independence.

To achieve this, we removed a big, impractical tub and replaced it with a luxurious walk-in shower. Not only does the final result look beautiful, but it is completely accessible for our client. He told us soon after that he took his first “drama-free” shower in years because of our walk-in shower recommendation.
