This article mainly discusses how modular housing can meet the needs of the elderly. Improved life expectancy has led to a gradual growth of the elderly population in today's society making this group and increasingly important consideration and focus. More products especially produced for the elderly market segment continue to appear. The design and construction industry is similarly recognising and paying more attention to the activity needs of the elderly in the building space. At present, there is still a shortage of housing for the elderly in towns such as Middlesbrough, UK. The design proposals considered here will discuss the concept for an elderly residential area in the Middlesbrough area in Northern England, met by flexible modular buildings, developed to meet the varying needs levels of the elderly
