In cooperation with Sozial-Service-GmbH of the Bavarian Red Cross, renovation and modernisation of the “protective area” in the senior citizens’ residential complex in Munich Pasing Westkreuz for people with dementia
“Interior design that strengthens the individual and enables an individual culture of remembrance” is the credo of this pilot project. The preservation of human dignity is the focus of attention.
In consultative cooperation with the Faculty of Social Work and Health and scientific support, fundamental innovative findings in the field of “interior design as therapy” have been gained in this way.
It is to be acknowledged that with this synaesthetic interpretation of design and the therapeutic support of nursing work, broad interest and acceptance is achieved among all those affected. The principle “Design for the elderly has the aim of ensuring individual physical, psychological and social well-being in the room” is thus applied in an innovative, original and credible way. The result is light, sound, colour and movement therapy facilities that are innovative and pioneering.
