Research output: Book/ReportOther ReportOther


This research report is focused on how architectural design can more effectively accommodate and address older women’s housing needs. It identifies and includes the lived experience of older women in different housing types in the greater Melbourne area. It addresses a gap in research that considers older women’s housing needs through an architectural perspective and is focused on the importance of placing women at the centre of the design process by involving them in conversations about housing types and spatial arrangements.
