FutureHAUS Leads the Way in Multi-Family Housing with Innovations for Smart Home, Prefabricated and Sustainable Design Concepts

Developed by faculty and students at Virginia Tech Center for Design Research, the FutureHAUS is an exploration in the integration of pre-fabricated, energy efficient and smart home systems for the future of affordable housing. The prototype was unveiled in the 2018 Solar Decathlon Middle East competition, taking home a first-place victory over 14 other selected teams and more than 60 total entrants. The victory comes after years of research in two distinct fields: the industrialization of buildings and integrated construction, and sustainably designed smart home environments. The FutureHAUS includes an entry way, kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom with technologies based on the principles of Aging in Place, integrated with the development of modular structures.
