The Senior Club serves as a space for seniors, connecting with the community and promoting healthy aging through a variety of resources to help them stay active and independent. Therefore, this study proposes a plan for the development of senior clubs, which is a center for social and therapeutic activities for older adults at specific times of the day. The project design for this research is based on two case studies, the social housing for the elderly in Alcácer do Sal and the Guangxi elderly center. The project design in this study includes several important areas, such as public areas, educational areas, administrative areas, support service areas, fitness areas and residential areas. The proposed project site for the project is located in the Obhur Al-Shamaliyah district, as the site has significant advantages in terms of shape and scale, topography, accessibility and visual quality. Lastly, this project aims to provide a good environment for the elderly to connect with others, especially to learn new knowledge, and to believe that they can live long and disease-free.
