ADA is nothing more than a determinant, as well as a source of all information and guidelines regarding the introduction of such enhancements. ADA vs. reception desk. As everyone knows, not all reception desks take into account the needs of people with disabilities.
I just looked this up myself and i'm pretty sure that if you give any kind of transaction counter at all to standing-height people, you have to give a transaction top of at least the same depth at ADA height. so, if your 42" high top is 10" deep, then you need 10" at 34" high with enough room for someone to either pull up adjacent or with the knee/toe clearance below for them to pull up under.
