SST ADMT Elderly Challenge homework part 3

Hi all.

I am supposed to design a room for an elderly to live in.

I have designed a bed room.

I will show it to you below:

Here is the room from different view angle.

As you can see, there is a large sliding door (below) which will make it easier for the elderly to open and close. It is large and makes it easy to move in and for those in wheelchair, it is easier.

There are many windows (below) so that there will be fresh air and air circulation.

But since it is too high for the elderly to reach to open and close, there is a panel of switches (below) to the left of the door to open and close the windows. All the elderly have to do is to press once and the window will open, press again to close it.

Above the switches there is a handrail just in case the elderly needs support.

beside the switches, there is a row of cabinets (below) for the elderly to put her cloths and things etc.

They are low in height so the elderly do not need to reach so high to open or close it.

On the other side of the room, there is a television ( below) for the elderly to watch. It is located opposite the bed so the elderly can lie on the bed and watch it.

There is a staircase (below) for the elderly just in case he or she have trouble getting up and down the bed. there is also a handrail for the elderly.

There is also a side table beside the bed if he or she needs to use it for any purpose and put things on it.

So this is the room.

I hoped you like it.

Thank you.


  1. U know, the entrance is quite high...

  2. The bottom is an extension underground for the foundation of the building. . The door is at ground level.
