Abstract

This paper will discuss a unique inclusive design approach that accommodates a bespoke wheelchair within a luxury environment of a motor-yacht. The saloon seating area slides gracefully to allow the lift to raise the wheel chair from the bedroom in the hull. The bedroom has a larger shower room and resolved access to storage. This groundbreaking project leads the way in de-stigmatising disability, moving boat design towards a more inclusive field and opening up this leisure activity to an ever increasingly number of people with disabilities within our population. The material landscapes (the products that fill our environments) we construct within our personal lives and inherit in public environments have a significant impact upon our daily experiences. They affect our work productivity, our feeling of well-being, and sense of being socially connected. The material landscape shapes the perception of our own independence. People should be empowered by design, but are often stymied by things that have been designed poorly.
