Barrier-free and age-appropriate living in the LifePhasesHouse

From the outside, the LifePhasesHouse is rather plain - a cubic structure with a wooden lamella façade. The large lettering "LebensPhasenHaus" is the eye-catcher of the consistent architecture. The FlyingSpace, which shows a solution for age-appropriate and barrier-free living in the LifePhasesHouse, sets itself apart visually with a white plasterfaçade. Inside the LifePhasesHouse a friendly atmosphere was created by colourful furnishing. The ground floor shows a barrier-free show apartment with care and assistance systems to try out. A seminar room was also integrated. In the future, this room will be used to give presentations to help people understand the demands on caregivers and the needs of seniors or people with disabilities. On the first floor there is a gallery for exhibitions for example for new research projects.
