I have thought about this a while back, when we moved into our space. And
the conclusion is that we are totally not accesible to people in wheelchairs.
We have a narrow staircase leading up to the 1st floor, which is our space.

Never thought about chemical fumes, but we don't do much of that in the space
anyway. We've got a fablab around the corner :)

We haven't had problems re accesibility yet, but am sure that once it arises
we can creatively deal with it. We are a hackerspace after all.
