How can we arrange the physical places in senior citizen complex Den Hoogenban (in Rotterdam) in such a way that they can contribute to a pleasant and social place?

We share the results, interventions and explore the next step of Expeditite 55+ with you.

About the project

We have been inspired by the following themes: strengthening autonomy, facilitating pleasant ways of interacting and researching how this can be done in an inclusive way, for each based on their on values.

In Den Hoogenban, a senior citizen complex in Rotterdam, we have developed social and physical interventions that contribute to an inclusive and social place. Autonomy and self-management are central themes. We have developed these interventions in co-creation with the target group. We are excited to take you through the process, the results and the next step of ‘Expeditie 55+’.

The lessons and experiments for an inclusive environment are valuable for anyone who is concerned with social issues, diversity and where housing and care issues come together.

About echter ontwerp & Jip van de Beek

echter ontwerp: My motivation in all my projects is inclusion. Whether it concerns care issues, the design of the public space, or sustainability. In an inclusive process. The result: an inclusive solution in which everyone is involved, in their own way.
