5 Creative Ramp Stairs For The Able and Disable (Less Able)

↓ Sponsored Links    |    Updated: June 24, 2014    |    Home » Architecture Matters

I prefer the term less able over disable, here are some really creative stairs for the less fortunate people. It is more of the idea of both using the same structure instead of having a separate ramp at some remote corner, as if these less fortunate people are not worthy of entering the building.

Tony Hawk and his skateboard approves this design!

    Good point on the disabled label.

    Those ramps are cool, but I worry would they meet ADA codes here in the U.S.?

    my concern is that those ramps don’t look “soooooo”but they are no support rails on those ramps, can;t it pose a danger?

      Yeah, the missing rails. Maybe the sloop is 2 times smaller than the safety requirement? These local councils approved the design, I believe it must have met the safety requirements.
