No.1 Lower Carbon Drive
The typical Victorian terraced house – home to so many Londoners – is not the most energy-efficient design, as it can emit six tonnes of CO2 in one year. How this can be reduced is demonstrated at a specially designed, life-size eco-house named ‘No.1 Lower Carbon Drive’ which has been touring the capital to promote new services, and to showcase ideas to ‘green’ your home.
This unusual and practical exhibition is open to everyone – and it is fully accessible. Proudlock Associates assessed the plans and drawings for the project and then advised on changes that would make it easier for a wide range of disabled people to use the space.
The Proudlock team wrote an access guide for people working at the exhibition, advising them about the things they could do to support disabled visitors. They made sure that barriers were removed and design of the exhibition included everyone, not just people in wheelchairs but those with sensory and invisible impairments too.
