Moreover, environmental design forms the framework for the implementation of appropriate concepts of care. Over the past years, there has been an intense debate about this subject matter in German care practice. As a result, a series of building projects which rely on VSHFLÂżFGHVLJQSULQFLSOHVKDYHEHHQPDWHULDOL]HG'HYHORSHGE\H[SHUWVWKRVH principles aim at shaping a dementia-friendly environment. This study investigates how these design principles underlying the planning process prove their value in the day to day practices of living and caring. Furthermore and by advancing from the perspectives of diverse user groups, the study also seeks to identify which design features are particularly relevant to the attempt of creating a quality-oriented place for those who live there.
