The aging population calls for more research efforts towards enhancing assisted living for elderly people living in Indonesia, including ergonomic housing that accommodates their characteristics and needs. This paper discusses a study to provide an ergonomic living-dining room design in elderly homes by applying the participatory design approach with six Indonesia elders. Through interviews and observations, a list of elderly user requirements was defined as a foundation to generate a number of design concepts. Furthermore, one design concept was selected and refined by applying the anthropometry data.
