Carol Sundstrom, AIA, describes Randy Earle and Leslie Haynes as a design savvy couple who love to cook and entertain. “They’re major foodies,” says the Röm Architecture Studio principal. “Functionality was thus very important.” Especially since the kitchen, like the rest of the couple’s Seattle loft, had to be wheelchair friendly; a degenerative condition affects Earle’s mobility. The renovation, a collaboration with accessibility consultant Karen Braitmayer, FAIA, proves universal design is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. “The space is very specifically tailored to how Randy cooks and moves,” says Sundstrom.
