Center for Obstacle-free Building


In the aspects of holistic planning and building, living is an elementary need and affects very directly the quality of  life. For the handicapped it is of utmost importance to avoid, or adjust building obstacles, remove barriers and to create a quality living environment promoting as much independence as possible. These expenses are mainly combined within the expenses of daily living. Mistakenly, obstacle-free building is not a question of money, but appropriate planning. When the most important aspects are considered early on,  satisfactory solutions can be found; which are in comparison compatible with conventional buildings. Also regarding  to its architecture there are hardly any restrictions or limitations.



Personal & Social Advantages


«Obstacle-free Building» does not limit itself to the practical application of technique and aesthetics. As a part of its benefit it also offers community convenience and advantages to wheelchair users and older people. Due to appropriate living and building arrangements, most affected people can remain in their apartment. As a result avoid special institutions/rehabs and save considerable social costs.
