TANDA•AN Retirement & Recreation Resort

“Tandaan” came from the root word “Tanda” which can mean old or remember. Both meanings signify the project’s intentions. The design aims to create a safe and comfortable environment for the elderly, or the “Nakatatanda,” which translates to “people who remember.” But, is the word “nakatatanda” really suitable for seniors if they are known to be forgetful? This question made the concept seek to emphasize the significance of recollection in experiencing architecture for the elderly.

Even though seniors have weakened memories, they still tend to relive past experiences, helping them explore their thoughts and feelings, and define their identity in the current moment. With this, the design aims to assist in remembering information while maintaining independence. The approach also gives importance to reminiscing as part of their lifestyle. To achieve this, the design highlights the influence of the senses on memory. This gives information about the surroundings, allowing the elderly to remain independent and supporting their overall well-being and experience.

The project’s goal is to create a future-proof senior living that will enhance independence, dignity, and quality of life. This objective can be attained through the concepts of recollection and memory for it can be considered that memories are comforting, lasting, and “future-proof.”
