Issue: The beginnings of the universal planning date back to the 1950's, but the area of universal design is still not sufficiently taken in the account in building construction and built-up environment. In the field of universal planning Slovenia adopted legislation about providing access to all public structures and multi-apartment buildings. The new Building Act adds a requirement for universal construction and equipment utilization. However, there are still very few facilities built following the guidelines of universal planning. The problem is even greater regarding the design of tourist facilities, as there are very few tourist facilities that are appropriate for people with various disabilities, although planning of tourism facilities has quite a few recommendations and guidelines regarding the area of accessible tourism or tourism for everyone.
Purpose: The purpose of the graduation thesis is to produce a new draft of the selected Glamping Ribno tourist facility, based on legal requirements, recommendations, examples of good practice and evaluation of the actual state of Glamping Ribno, so the Glamping Ribno would be enabled for all impaired persons.
Method: We designed the Glamping Ribno project in 6 steps. The steps follow the principles of universal planning and they are as followed: 1. Identification of the target population group, 2. Definition of the purpose of the building, 3. The set of legal requirements and recommendations, 4. View and assessment of the actual situation, 5. Making a design or design template., 6.Verification of the performed work by the experts.
Results: Based on the reviewed literature on universal planning, accessible tourism, Slovenian laws, examples of good practice and the examination of the actual situation, we have elaborated the guidelines and requirements that had to be taken into account in the preparation of the new draft of the tourist facility Glamping Ribno. Following these guidelines we had to create a new design of car park, new design for the access routes and the new design of the glamping house.
Conclusions: The approach used in the design of a template can be used at any stage in the design of buildings, which are intended to be useful and accessible to all, regardless of their disability.
