As we start to think holistically about ageing in society, the impact goes far beyond the building scale. It’s time to design residential developments that fit into wider communities and embrace change.
Beyond Senior Living: Designing Communities for Inclusion
What We Did
Legacy to longevity: acknowledging that older adults are active members of society who require the infrastructure and amenities to continue living life as they want.
Functional to experiential: moving beyond single-use spaces to create adaptive, multifunctional destinations where people can live, socialize, feel safe, and have meaningful experiences.
Isolation to participation: taking a more holistic approach to developing spaces for older adults. Inviting them to be active participants in driving their desired experiences.
Fixed to flex: developing adaptable building infrastructure that evolves and changes to people’s needs as they live longer lives.
