Next Generation Accessible Hotel Room
Lead Experience Designer
Room for All project is an inclusive design exploration aimed at studying accessibility solutions that go beyond code requirements.
Global design, operations and multicultural affairs departments teamed up to create an accessible hotel room that is smart and functional - using latest technology including IOT (Internet of Things), voice recognition and audio indicators.
In addition to functional benefits, we challenged ourselves to create a space that looks and feels good, drawing inspirations from Neuroaesthetics in order to address emotional well-being of guests with disabilities, and position accessible rooms as well designed environments rather than an after thought.
A collaboration with Inclusive Design expert Elise Roy.
