"Five generations house" is a house that proposes a way of living in the age of 100 years society. As the aging progresses, children are few, what kind of way of living will make people happy in such a world? It is not a problem only for elderly people. Children and all generations will change little by little in their lives. And, we think that the way of living and needs in the 60s and 80s are completely different. Therefore, we propose one form of life style. Five generations 4 households cooperate, to help each other, to watch over, to propose a way of living to form a mini-community. Furthermore, we considered the needs suited to each generation into four households.
