Description:This 1996 image depicted a grandmother with her granddaughter as they were standing at the front door to their home, and looking out through a full-height glass side-panel sidelight window towards the visitor who was approaching the closed doorway. The floor-to-ceiling sidelight window allowed both the very short toddler, as well as the adult woman to effortlessly see outside for approaching visitors, weather changes, etc., without having to open the door.
“The CUD conducts original research to learn what design solutions are appropriate for the widest diversity of users, and what tools are most useful to practitioners wishing to successfully practice universal design. The Center collaborates with builders and manufacturers on the development of new design solutions. It also develops publications and instructional materials, and provides information, referrals and technical assistance to individuals with disabilities, families, and professionals nationwide and internationally.”

Universal Design Principles/Guidelines:

- Provide the same means of use for all users: identical whenever possible; equivalent when not

- Avoid segregating or stigmatizing any users

- Make the design appealing to all users

- Allow user to maintain a neutral body position

- Provide a clear line of sight to important elements for any seated or standing user
