Empathy drives designer’s focus on Universal Design
Julie and Eddie Leverett, Jr., co-founders and partners of ONE eleven ltd. in Las Vegas, NV, are in a unique position to empathize with the clients of their consulting, design/build and remodeling company, which specializes in Universal Design concepts.
Julie Leverett spent years in the hospitality industry, including working at Simon Kitchen & Bar at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas with a renowned chef who was a boss, mentor and friend. She found herself called upon by the chef when a medical condition advanced to the point of requiring extra assistance. In 2005 Eddie Leverett, Jr. shattered both of his legs from the knees down in a motocross accident. Being a design-build contractor for 10-plus years at the time, he was determined to reconstruct his non-universal living space into a serene home environment, adding functionality and hope.
Thus, ONE eleven ltd. is particularly suited to provide full-home residential and small commercial renovations accommodating the needs of all individuals by constructing aesthetically pleasing, accessible spaces. The firm will create an overall renovation plan, encompassing all aspects of mobile accessibility within the existing walls and exterior grounds.
Bringing independence and safety to the lives of individuals who find themselves in circumstances of challenged mobility is the passion of both Julie and Eddie and the culture of ONE eleven ltd.
