Housing in Every Age


The task is to enable "housing in every age" instead of "housing in old age". Architecture for the elderly essentially corresponds to a non-discriminatory and sustainable architecture, which should be just as varied and differentiated as in any other stage of life.

The new publication by Bob Gysin Partner (BGP) covers a variety of housing options - from the urban hybrid, through retirement settlements with services, to care facilities. Practical examples show how to plan and design with today's norms and standards - energetic, operational and aesthetic.


The publication "Housing in Every Age" is a project of BGP that combines social commitment and cultural, architectural relevance.
