The HAPPI reports describes key principles for housing design for older people. In their words:

“The HAPPI principles are based on 10 key design criteria. Many are recognisable from good design generally – good light, ventilation, room to move around and good storage – but they have particular relevance to the spectrum of older persons’ housing which needs to both offer an attractive alternative to the family home, and be able to adapt over time to meet changing needs.”

There are four HAPPI reports and a number of background reports on related topics produced by the Housing LIN network.
