          Abstract

          The continual increase of the elderly population will render Malaysia with an ageing nation status by 2030. However, less emphasise was taken to accommodate the needs and preferences. This study aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the Elderly-Friendly Housing Design Features Preferences among Malaysians by using the mixed-method research strategy. Six (6) identified elderly-friendly housing design features preferences were; (1) Bathroom; (2) Bedroom; (3) Kitchen; (4) Floor; (5) Living Room; and (6) Staircase. The revealed findings will assist the industry in understanding the elderly housing needs and preferences better to enhance the quality of life of the Malaysian generations.
