Abstract
As we age and need help with the chores that we used to perform on our own, there are two ways that we can get help in the current situation. The first is that you can get home care, which means that health care providers will come to the residents home and give him or her the care and help needed. The other option is to move into an assisted living form where there are health professionals on site around the clock or as needed. In most cases, the elderly chooses to try and live at home as long as possible for several reasons.

As we age and need help with the chores that we used to perform on our own, there are two ways that we can get help in the current situation. The first is that you can get home care, which means that health care providers will come to the residents home and give him or her the care and help needed. The other option is to move into an assisted living form where there are health professionals on site around the clock or as needed. In most cases, the elderly chooses to try and live at home as long as possible for several reasons. One of these is that nursing homes usually are very sterile, tedious and lacks a friendly home environment. By creating an area of buildings that are designed for the requirements of Boverkets Byggregler and Svensk Standard, where the focus is to create a nice layout of both houses as public areas, we want to change the perception of nursing homes while inspiring the elders. The area comprises four buildings. A main building, one nursing home and two service houses. The three residential buildings are divided into three levels each excluding basement and penthouse. The three houses has a hall of glass going through all three buildings on every floor to simplify for both residents and the employees. The idea is that the hall of glass will open up all levels, maximize natural lighting as much as possible and create an affinity between the residential buildings. The aforementioned main building is the most important part of this concept. It is an activity centre that can be used by all residents and relatives but also by the staff. This building includes a restaurant, with serving both indoors and outdoors, a library, gym, spa, grocery store, a pharmacy and a conference hall that can also be used as a movie theatre. This concept, with potential for a variety of activities within the business makes our project unique. (Less)
