With regards to intergenerational problems between children and elderly in contemporary society, how can interior architectural strategies be deployed to positively contribute to the development of healthy cross-generation (sub)urban communities?

The project aims to propose a new social structure dispersing the isolation, and suggests intergenerational interaction as a medium to close the gap between generations and strengthen people's sense of involvement to the society. Interior Architectural strategies are examined to collaborate all aspects and create platforms to MAXIMISE the mutual benefits of intergenerational interactions and minimize the tensions in cross-generation society. Rather than employing existing institutionalized settings of care services, the project suggests an insertion of Before and After School Care service to the existing Retirement Village, to embrace the picturesque cottage gardens in site, and propose a series of therapeutic activities designated to enhance occupant's sensory and social experiences. The thematic of activities are based on the history of the founder - George Selth Coppins and resident's personal experiences.
