Architecture Design for senior citizens

1995

2015

I designed a house for senior citizens living in the historic business district in Wuhan, China. I did this project when I was an architecture student. During this project, I observed and interviewed the residents for a week, most of which are aged over 65 years old. 

Time: 2016.1      |       My role: Site research, user research, architecture design

 

In the past, this was a residential area famous for the handicrafts. Handicraftsman living here in big families. And now, 20 years later, the handicraftsman becomes senior citizens living alone, meanwhile, this area is changed into a well-known historic business district for visitors. Therefore, all the changes lead to the lifestyle change and a new form of the house is needed.

 

Thanks for watching
