Abstract [en]

This project tries to identify the coastal architecture on Klädesholmen, a fishing community in Bohuslän. Trough analysis and mapping of the vernacular architecture a pallette was formed and laid ground for a proposal of what the regional architecture in can be in a contemporary form. The presented program contains a “Korttidsboende” and is a response to an identified problem in the Swedish prime care of elderly people. ”Korttidsboenden” is a housing form that can be translated to; short-term accommodation for people over 65 years of age, still living at home, in need for rehabilitation after a medical surgery or in need for rest after taking care of a partner. By crossing the studies in elderly care and research of vernacular architecture, the aim of the project is to report a proposal that breaks from the locally prevailing pastiche and offer alternatives in the rationalized and functional planning of homes for elderly today.
