About Access Studio
Access Studio is a boutique consultancy that works across the commercial, hospitality and residential construction industry to ensure the spaces they build are accessible to all of us, regardless of ability. Our qualified architects provide tailored design solutions that promote accessibility and usability; we know that a person’s ability to go about their daily lives as independently as possible is directly influenced by how accessible and usable their environment is.
