World population aging requires finding solutions to improve independent living options. Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is making step forward developing services supporting the elderly, but the implementation of predictive environments is still far away. Besides, the emerging Digital Twin (DT) concept has begun to shape the first cognitive environments that integrate users into assessments, improving efficiency, prevention, and prediction of likely events through realtime AI computing. This paper aims to provide a prototype of a Cognitive Building framework based on DT models that develop high-level knowledge to achieve real-time Scenario Awareness and offer appropriate AAL services once anomalies are detected.
