Jane Vorbrodt is the principal of Kuno Architecture Inc., a design and consulting firm that specializes in accessible, inclusive and universal design. Jane believes that everyone has the right to be able to use and enjoy all built spaces. She helps her clients eliminate barriers in everything from large corporate environments to individual living spaces.
Before starting KUNO, Jane worked as an architect for large firms, where her projects included airports, community centres and multi-use developments. Jane volunteers by reviewing accessibility in the built environment as a member of the City of Vancouver Urban Design Panel, the City of Vancouver’s Persons with Disabilities Advisory Committee, and the Disability Alliance BC’s Right Fit Project steering committee. Jane was one of the first to graduate from Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™ (RHFAC) training, and she has been applying this knowledge on dozens of sites since then, with a focus on pre-construction consultation and review. Jane speaks at events regarding universal design and she co-published a book about accessible washrooms for commercial applications titled Building Better Bathrooms.
