Accessibility and Universal Design

With the expansion of Musholm, the Danish Muscular Dystrophy Foundation has created attractive holiday and leisure experiences in a new and innovative manner where activities can be adapted to individual skills, ambitions and functions.

The vision is to create a resort, which architectural design embraces diversity by encouraging increased participation, interaction, collectivism, learning and social interaction, thereby helping to create a more diverse society. A holiday resort that is no longer “only” for people with neuromuscular diseases but for all. Key concepts used to translate this vision are: Universal Design, Empowerment and Independent Living.
