1/5 of your life – Dignified senior living

(1/5 av ditt liv – Bo bra på äldre dar)

Gathering elderly folks in generic service centres, with no regard to each individual's preferences or background, is a thing of the past. Guidewords for designing modern senior residences are Dignity, Respect and Sustainability.

These three short films were produced in 2013 for the exhibition "1/5 of your life" at The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design, in collaboration with the Swedish Institute for Assistive Technology.

Directed by Hanna Heilborn and produced by Story AB. Filmed and edited by Mattias Olsson.
