The third phase of Virginia Tech’s FutureHAUS, a just-completed bathroom, will be showcased this week in Las Vegas at North America’s premier annual kitchen and bath industry event.
FutureHAUS explores new ways of building and incorporating smart technologies for homes. The applied research project also demonstrates the efficiency and quality of modular construction, and the strategy of designing homes for accessibility and lifelong living.
The project’s first phase, the FutureHAUS kitchen, created a buzz last year when it made its debut at last the same event — the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas. This year’s three-day event starts today.
Just like the kitchen and living room, which was completed last summer, the bathroom explores ideas for the future that incorporates currently available cutting-edge appliance, newly created smart technology, and integrated accessible design.
