Ouderen, voornamelijk 65 plussers, trainen in groepsverband bij een sportschool in Wassenaar 10 mei 2017. Steeds meer ouderen vinden hun weg naar een fitnesscentrum. Bewegen voor ouderen in de vorm van krachttraining – waar nodig volgens een individueel aangepast programma en onder begeleiding – kan er voor zorgen dat ouderen geen spieren meer verliezen, maar juist sterker en stabieler worden. Resultaat van goede krachttraining is dat men fit en vitaal blijft en ‘krakkemikkigheid’ en ‘fragiliteit’ buiten de deur houdt.

Ageing in place

The total complex of factors – the shift from inpatient care to outpatient care, the ageing population, the increase of the number of people with dementia and the number of single person and two person households in addition to changing demands and wishes in the area of hybrid residential/care environments – must be brought together and translated in a new concept for homes for life: LIVin.

LIVin fills in the gaps between ‘living’ and ‘care’. Livin Concepts invests sustainably in homes as a carer and in the direct surroundings as a social ecosystem so that the home and the surroundings both contribute to preventing, solving and ameliorating the ailments that come with increasing age.Our choices for modular timber construction, energy-neutral construction with energy generation through solar panels, use of natural building materials, energy-efficient systems, use of domotica, wall finishings and use of colour reflect what we are trying to achieve: Sustainable living in a safe environment at an affordable price.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

New possibilities by linking data

Just imagine: your alarm clock goes earlier because it is going to be a busy day, the traffic light turns green just as you get to it, street lights are off when there is no one outside, but light up when you are jogging past. Wouldn’t it be great if your windows shut automatically when a cloud of particulate matter floats by, and open when the air is fresh and clean?

The data platform makes it possible to share and combine data from all available sensors in real time. Data combinations allow us to develop new applications and make the district smarter. It would allow for data-driven police deployment, for making homes smarter based on data on energy consumption or air quality, and last-mile improvements.The data is shared and disclosed based on conditions set by the owner, which guarantees the privacy of the data owner and compliance with regulations. By remaining innovative and combining the latest and best tools, long drawn-out integration processes can be relegated to the past and security and privacy by design can be ensured. This will create an accessible data platform that is open to all. Director Niels Keurentjes explains the project in this video clip.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Living in a learning city

Big data is big business. Businesses use personal data for profit, often without citizens’ knowledge. We want to change this. This project aims to study and develop new models in which the actual residents of the district rather than big business can profit from data. What if data were to be used for the good of the community?

UNSense wants to set the next step in planning and opinion forming on smart cities, and explore what a smart city, with all its processes and information, might actually look like.  For this, it introduces as part of Brainport Smart District a real life test environment of 100 homes consisting of a cross-section of society ranging from single householders to families and from young to old. In this district we will study together with the residents how data can be used to improve the living environment and people’s welfare in cities in psychological, physical, social and economic terms.

Residents draw up joint plan for forty plots

In the autumn of 2018 we started looking for our first residents by calling for DIY plot pioneers to come forward. In this first ‘living lab’ 31 households are currently co-creating the first BSD district. They have found a location where they want to live together. The size of the plots is matched to the personal and shared (living) wishes of the future group of residents and their budgets. The plots project offers future residents a great deal of freedom, but we also expect them to take responsibility. The residents themselves are the initiators and therefore responsible for the realisation of their individual and collective dream spaces. This means they will have to think about and deal with water storage, energy-generating homes and public or shared green spaces.

TU/e students collaborating in ‘team CASA’ are designing and developing a house that will be constructed as a concept in Brandevoort, as a BSD example. CASA stands for Comfortable, Affordable and Sustainable Alternative for Housing in the Netherlands. In September/October 2019 the house, which contains three units, will be built in a short time in the new part of Brandevoort, the district that will be created following BSD principles, which the house of the students is fully compliant with.
