The 3six0 architecture firm has gone ahead and converted an old family home garage into a fantastically well-equipped and intelligently designed in-laws home that features specific elements that cater to the distinct needs of the elderly.

What's great about this particular in-laws home is the fact that it comes with a whole raft of wheelchair accessibility ramps and other features, and is completely devoid of stairs. The rooms link to one another via extremely wide doors that are easy to move through even for people living with mobility issues. The home is designed with over-sized windows that allow for plenty of sunlight come in, with frames that ensure that the place doesn't get too hot in the summer.

This in-laws home design is a fantastic example of an architectural project being directly influenced by the demographic requirements of occupants.
