The everyday life of elderly and cognitively impaired people can be significantly supported through information technology solutions, with spatial augmented reality being a promising one of them. With our solution approach, we are developing an Augmented Living Space (ALiS), whereby content is projected and communicated within the living space. Thus, individual, needs-oriented functionalities can be provided ergonomically and, yet immersively. The aim is to enable affected people to live autonomously for longer without having to rely on portable technology and, hence, provide user-centered support in the areas of perception, mobility, organization, and medicine. In this paper, we formulate and implement a design theory as well as showing a derived IS architecture. It is grounded on a three-step structured literature review, moderated focus group, and observation study. The evaluation hereby validates our theoretical design and architecture implementation to develop a general-accessible, context-aware, and user-centered augmented living space.
