of living in the city
Designing the mix of generations, facilitating the arrival of new populations, creating services and mobility axes that favor the local economy are essential factors that accelerate the attractiveness and economic dynamism of cities. We work with them to set up project teams that provide concrete solutions and enrich the residential paths that cities can offer their citizens.

Can you describe in a few words the demographic shift we are experiencing today?
We are facing an unprecedented demographic evolution. According to INSEE, France will have more than 68 million inhabitants in 2070, 57% of whom will be aged 65 and over. Obviously, this demographic evolution represents a fundamental challenge at the human level and for society as a whole, through sectors such as personal assistance, home help, transportation, security, leisure and, of course, housing.
In your opinion, what will be the consequences of this evolution on the habitat and its uses?
“Aging well” is a real challenge for society, and the choice of where seniors live is a key element. Among housing solutions, assisted living facilities provide “turnkey” answers to seniors’ aspirations. The vast majority of seniors want to age at home, independently, in an adapted and safe home, while maintaining social connections and conviviality.
“ By moving closer to the heart of cities, seniors can participate in the economic life and have access to the full range of daily services and local shops.”
How do you imagine the ideal senior residence?
First, isolation is a major factor in the loss of autonomy. By moving closer to the center of the city, seniors can participate in the economic life and have access to all the daily services and local shops. They participate in the life of the neighborhood, going out every day, even if they no longer drive.
What are the specificities of the residential services developed by Cosy Diem?
We believe there are several ways to look at a retirement community. Cosy Diem residences are primarily designed for people who are frail or losing their independence and need solutions to delay or even avoid dependency. The residences we design are the result of Kaufman & Broad’s expertise. We identify prime locations to build quality properties. We provide a full range of services and support to delay the physical and cognitive effects of aging.
Aging well is one of the major challenges of the coming decades. In this context, Kaufman & Broad and Serenis have created Cosy Diem to offer seniors an innovative housing concept.Learn more
