The term Active Assisted Living (AAL) encompasses methods, concepts, (electronic) systems, products, and services that support and facilitate the daily lives of older people and people with disabilities in a situation-dependent and unobtrusive manner. Architects, planners, and craftsmen face the challenge of navigating the complex variety of providers. This book presents the standards and technologies in a clear manner and demonstrates the opportunities for all involved parties. Using practical examples, it addresses the different requirements, products, technologies, and system components in house/apartment construction, assisted living/home care, the adaptation of rental apartments, and temporary physical limitations at home.

Since time immemorial, people have dreamed this one dream: that of their "own home", the "roof over their head" and later that of their "own four walls".

It is based on the most intimate needs such as protection and care - elementary components of our being and our responsibility for others - of our family and everything that is "dear and dear" to us - are the basis.

But these innermost drives also include characteristics of our life in large communities - cohesion and togetherness on the one hand - prestige, demarcation and individuality on the other.

After the many epochs of architectural history, we are now faced with a completely new dimension - one that incorporates the previously unknown dimensions into the "house": The digital age as a new basic human need - whether private or professional. And this is exactly where we are "at home": we are the specialists for such requirements - we face up to this responsibility. With practical experience like no other, we accompany you in your ideas and dreams - no matter how unusual they may seem. We are "designers" and not "technicians" - always on the lookout for new challenges - in town and country - on mountains or in valleys - in the cold or the desert. With us there is nothing "off the peg".

together with you we develop your projects and realize your dreams.

Or to talk to Julia Engelmann: "Let's write stories together that we'll remember later."

We look forward to it - and to you.
