'Transgenerational' Kitchen Accommodation...


A transgenerational kitchen emphasizes low effort while serving body mechanics.

It features multiple height work surfaces, which accommodate people of all sizes – including those in wheelchairs.

A rolling trolley, designed to lock into the finger-tip edge of the countertops, permits the user to configure the work surfaces as desired.

The base cabinet at the sink is easily modified should clear knee space for a wheelchair use be needed.

The resilient cork floor eases the pain of standing for long periods.
