Homes for Senior Citizens presents 22 international architectural projects that respond to the specific housing needs of the ageing population. The author is Arian Mostaedi according to whom the common shortage of resources and infrastructures in existing urban housing stock do not currently satisfy the expanding demand for socially supportive living conditions.
The designers of the showcased projects aim at establishing a balance between respect for the privacy of residents and the fostering of social activities and encounters. Two of the projects in Homes for Senior Citizens are from Finland: Sandels housing for senior citizens by Helin & Co Architects, and the Ulrika Eleonora house by Liisa & Markku Sievänen and Meiri Siivola. The projects are presented with colour photographs and architectural drawings such as site plans, floor plans and details.
