Breakthrough- Home Design Asheville-Style

Trailblazer Real Estate Journal

You may have read a report that signals a potential breakthrough in home design as we did recently. It really captured our attention. Here’s the gist:

 

Breakthrough- Morning Light in Asheville

 (photo - breakthrough morning light- Asheville mountain morning)

 

“Gretchen Anderson, the healthcare designer, who said that if we view seniors through the products that are available to them, then they would be viewed as ‘cranky, stupid, and tacky’ goes on to say that when we talk about needs of seniors there is a tendency to imagine someone whose eyesight, dexterity, and hearing are so impaired that they are incapable of having an experience.

She says, ‘It is therefore assumed that they will make do with, or perhaps even prefer, a mechanistic, bulky product that smells like a hospital.’    Anderson, G. Frog design mind: product design.

NOTE: Just so you know... your Trailblazer Team is REALLY excited about Asheville homes where contextual design is based on the input of our Awesome clients- without prejudice to age.
