The topic of this paper, "Inclusive Washrooms: A Solution Through Signage" is univer­sal wash­rooms and the oppor­tu­nity for vari­ous orga­ni­za­tions as well as the design indus­try to review asso­ci­ated signage to ensure they are meet­ing the needs of a wider commu­nity. Univer­sal wash­rooms exist in two scenar­ios – single-use wash­rooms contain­ing a single toilet and sink in a lock­able room, and multi-use facil­i­ties with indi­vid­ual enclosed toilet stalls that share a common sink area.

Thanks to the growing use of evidence-based design in healthcare environments, elements such as natural light, views to nature and clear wayfinding are becoming the norm in hospitals and wellness centers. Art also has an important role to play in healthcare spaces—and in a three-part series, we explore its power in supporting wayfinding, creating a sense of place and easing stress for patients, families and staff. Explore Art and Healing in Healthcare Environments.
