It is estimated that by 2050, people above 65 years of age will comprise more than 30% of the population of Great Britain, 35% in Germany, and over 40% in Spain. In addition, this age group is increasingly healthy into old age, meaning that even when they move into a care home, they want stimulating...

But even radically open-plan spaces – espoused by Frank Lloyd Wright and modernist architects in the 1930s – sometimes incorporated sliding doors. Sliding doors and partitions, of course, bring an almost immeasurable number of practical advantages to...
