Housing for People of All Ages: Flexible, Unrestricted, Senior-friendly
Birkhäuser, Jan 1, 2007 - Architecture - 176 pages
The project selection in this volume offers a comprehensive overview of housing developments catering to wheelchairs and children's pushers, through senior-friendly fit-outs, to modernization of existing constructions. Plans and concepts are foremost in the presentation. Constructional detailing, which is of particular relevance to the planning of unrestricted dwellings, is also presented here in large-scale drawings.
As in the previous volume from this series, technical articles clarify the concepts and offer valuable tips for planning. The expression "integrated living" is defined and its architectural typology demonstrated. Further essays analyse the constructional requirements involved in building for the elderly, the specific requirements of kitchen and bathroom, as well as the barrier-free design and construction of both new structures and in existing fabric. Supplementary information is provided in the form of addresses of advisory centres and associations, as well as complementary technical information.
