“New Day”: Documentary Released About IHCD/Open Society Foundations Project in Zagreb, Croatia

Apr 22, 2013

In December 2012, construction was completed on a 100 square meter flat in Zagreb, Croatia designed by IHCD and funded by the Open Society Foundations Mental Health Initiative.  The Universally-Designed flat, which is owned by the Association for Promoting Inclusion in Zagreb, now serves as the principal residence of four formerly-institutionalized adults with developmental and physical disabilities.  The 35-minute documentary discusses not only the specific features of the design of the flat, but also the human aspects of disability and inclusion as it chronicles the first important steps in the residents’ transition from their previous life situations to a new life, living independently as possible within the community.
