The definition of Longevity usually revolves around living, long-lasting and life. Which describes perfectly to the elderly community who had been living longest among us. However, they are also one of the groups that have not been given enough attention to, though they might be one of the major groups that need it as we are living in an ageing population.
Longevity is a Hong Kong-based social enterprise established in 2015. We provide interior design and technological solutions for those with accessibility issues in their homes. Our mission is to help the elderly and those with physical disabilities to renovate their living spaces so they are safe and accessible to them, regardless of financial background. We also aim to broaden our target audience as our designs can also apply to those that are preparing for retirement or other younger audiences as our designs could be stylish and chic as well.
