Housing for people of all ages: Flexible, unrestricted, senior-friendly

Author: Schittich, C.
Type: Edited Book


This book, edited by Christian Schittich discusses how communal living, intergenerational living, living for families, handicap-accessible living, living and working, living and leisure time – the wide variety of current demands is shaping future concepts in housing, which will have to do justice to the needs of our increasingly multilayered society. The examples in this new volume in the In Detail series are correspondingly diverse. From the demand for stroller- and wheelchair accessible housing through facilities that accommodate the needs of senior citizens all the way to the modernization of existing buildings, the selection of projects offers a panoramic overview.
