Senior housing

by  Hong Li


Though great differences exist between elderly residential systems in Eastern and Western societies, architects and designers all over the world should always pay attention to the mood and mental health of the elderly residents, and safety and comfortability of their living environment. The book covers the most typical aging societies such as Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, USA and Japan, where the latest notable projects are selected, including nursing homes, senior apartments, elderly communities and high-end elderly residences. Featuring different styles and innovations, and particularly an analysis of the demands and trends of elderly residential projects in China, the book offers a reference kit for all designers from different backgrounds
