Currently there is rapid aging and huge demand for elderly housing. Buildings for senior living must be of a particular type. The sustainable methods in those buildings are special in some respects. To meet the theory of sustainable design, it is necessary to evaluate the suitability of sustainable designs of buildings for senior living. This paper has researched literature of senior living to discover the differences from normal architectural designs. Afterwards, this paper presented three case studies on well-designed senior housing, including a nursing home, a complex nursing community and a senior apartment. After those studies, this paper recommends some effective sustainable designs in senior housing, including: Building Shape Coefficient, Energy-efficient HVAC system, Space optimization for efficient operation, Healing Garden Rain Garden, Three-dimensional green, Rainwater collection system, and solar arrays.
