The purpose of the project was to establish the spatial conditions for integrating social, educational, cultural, service, care and other programmes into the contemporary model of intergenerational centre.
The project task is usually developed through the case studies of existing intergenerational centres, analysis of programme and functional requirements and analysis of spatial conditions on particular location.
A precondition for fulfilling the task is research considering demographic changes of the area.
Usually intergenerational centres are concentrated in one building embracing all listed programme. In case of Žiri the intergenerational centre can be a network of programmes within one settlement. Network can use existing intergenerational structure, to which additional and new infrastructure is added. Network (and not a building any more) becomes an intergenerational centre.
The intergenerational centre is conceived as a node in a widespread network of programmes of the social care and intergenerational cooperation. The centre integrates household communities (contemporary concept of nursing home), palliative care, temporary care, day care for old people, sheltered housing, educational centre, kindergarten, restaurant, multi-purpose auditorium and other programmes and services.
