The aim of this chapter is to describe the process that has been carried out for the adaptation of the housing model for the elderly to the Spanish context. From an architectural design perspective, new solutions have been implemented to define an alternative to institutional models. The interest of the Lugaritz lifelong homes lies in their innovative approach, which works from two different perspectives, care and home design, both with a common goal: to grow old in place. 

It is also important to highlight its objective of generating knowledge that makes this project a replicable and scalable example from a perspective based on participation, inclusion and design for change.
