dc.description.abstract A home. A place where every moment of your life remains, daintily floats around like dust, settling down little by little, becoming memories that can overwhelm you with a small breeze. Home. A place representing a reflection of your life story. A place that represents who you are, an expression of life. The meaning of a home can be distorted in the case of old age, yet there is no proper solution to help the elderly to maintain their independence. The official aim of a nursing home is caring, but the idea of caring does not bear any meaningful resemblance to what humanity would call ‘living.’ In order to build a legitimate place to maintain the true meaning of ‘living’ regardless of old age, this thesis asks the question of how in-between space can be used as a mechanism to facilitate relationships between neighbours in order to enhance a sense of community for every generation and especially for the sake of older people. In exploring this question, this thesis includes the investigation of a traditional Korean house design and its spatial aspects for its employment of structural flexibility and use of space which can be seen to enhance the connectivity between indoor and outdoor space, family members, and last but not least, between neighbours. This thesis also looks at the notion of the Aldo van Eyck’s ‘in-between realm’ and Alison and Peter Smithson’s Doorstep Philosophy and how these ideas have been generated into an architectural form to intensify interaction and communication within a community. In addition, this thesis examines the potential synergy of integrating the aspect of elderly care and child care in order to enhance the relationship between the older generation and younger generation. en
