As the average human lifespan increases, it is increasingly necessary for the architectural profession to rethink the design of residential solutions for aging people, particularly those with dementia. With advancing age we are increasingly dependent on a spatial environment that not only has a positive effect on us, but also supports our everyday activities and takes age-related restrictions into account. One focal point of this issue is the sensory factor: colour and lighting design, sound design, tactile materials and surfaces and haptically attractive forms that foster an atmosphere in which the resident feels comfortable, providing security and orientation and fostering motor skills and cognitive abilities. Building for Dementia has been developed as a guideline for contemporary and dignified architecture that meets the requirements of people with dementia and views them as an integral part of society.
