"The accessible features are part of the fundamental design, not an add-on or an afterthought."

Pauline Nee, John McAslan + Partners (Architect)

"Together, the two objectives - access for all young people and for a wide range of functions - allowed a strong business case for access to be argued. In its newly converted form, the Roundhouse should be up to the job for many years to come."

David Bonnett (Access Consultant)

"Why engage with disabled people about their access needs for a building project? Because disabled people are experts on their own needs. They face access issues every day, and often have creative ideas about how to deal with them."
