Abstract: Designs aimed at the involvement of disabled people in social life are thought to bring the disabled users into a situation isolating them from the society. This study aims to emphasize that with the use of universal design principles, rather than making different designs for each user group, the space, products and services available to everyone can be revealed. This study was carried out with the view that space, products and services designed by universal design principles can be used by the disabled and that the disabled are an integral part of the society. The study was conducted with three study groups, which were formed by the active involvement of disabled individuals. Working groups focused on designs that can serve all users with reference to the experiences, expectations and needs of individuals with disabilities. At the end of the study, groups designed spaces, products and services that meet the needs of disabled people with universal design principles and provide routine participation in social life.
