Down to Get Up

More Info


People with Down Syndrome are growing older but, at the same time, are still disconnected from the world. Their needs change as they age, which is researched in this thesis. Can the design of their living environment simplify their daily activities? Guidelines are conducted from different fieldwork observations and interviews in which multiple aspects come across. These guidelines give a general overview of the requirements on two scales; the location and the building. Using these guidelines, people with Down Syndrome get a home within society for the rest of their lives.
