Cooperative home for elderly people

In her MSC diploma, Anikó Szilágyi planned a cooperative home for the elderly people. In this house these people can live together on the understanding that they have to take up with themselves and the others.

A lot of people think these homes are wrong, but this building is not an ordinary one. When those days come in to the elderly person’s life, starts to think negative because he is getting tired and feel alone at home. In this house these people can live together on the understanding that they have to take up with themselves and the others. There is a medical corps for safety sake, and every storey includes nursery room as well. The building include some of special things, such as a restaurant which open for the ordinary man, a public kitchen where they can cook together and sell it, and baby-sitter room where they can meet children under the eye of a nurse.

Although there are many public space, those people get private space as well.
The main component of the building is the plant life which appear on every side. It helps for elderly people to feel home in this place.
