The KB Home ProjeKt breaks new ground in smart home building through innovative partnerships and cutting-edge technology that helps residents improve their physical and emotional health and well-being and is designed to flex with the needs of its homeowners. It is the home of tomorrow that integrates smart and sustainable technologies, innovative home design and materials to make a healthier home attainable for everyone—from first-time buyers to retirees.
Here are some key features of the KB Home ProjeKt:
Smart Home Technology
It all starts with Google Home, the tech foundation of the KB Home ProjeKt, with Mesh network and Google Assistant, working alongside the Delos DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence Network. The smart home’s technological advances operate seamlessly to create a relaxing and more productive environment without intruding on its residents.
A Healthier Kitchen
The kitchen is the hub of wellness with cutting-edge Whirlpool smart appliances and creative touches. Working together, the Whirlpool appliances and the Yummly app can examine the contents of the refrigerator, identify what recipes are possible and prepare the oven to cook the selected recipe — all from a phone. A living garden wall makes it easy and sustainable to access fresh food.
A Healthier Indoor Ecosystem
Delos’ DARWIN™ Home Wellness Intelligence Network, a first-of-its-kind system, passively monitors and constantly responds to real-time environmental conditions within the home. DARWIN is always taking care of the resident, delivering fresh outside air while purifying indoor air quality conditions, as well as purified water at every fixture within the home.
Rest is considered an important foundation for healthy living. The home’s noise-reducing walls and windows and circadian lighting are designed to create an ideal sleeping environment, as well as areas for activity or relaxation. Special noise-dampening drywall means quieter bedrooms and a peaceful atmosphere. DARWIN even adjusts lighting to match the time of day and sync with your body’s own natural circadian rhythms — the body’s “internal clock.” For example, lighting can be set to create an energizing environment for morning and a calming one for the evening.
A Flexible Home That Adapts to Its Owner
With KB Home ProjeKt, whatever you need your home to be is up to you. Moveable walls offer a multitude of options throughout the day in a single, highly efficient space. Flexible space can become a bedroom, office, studio or entertaining area. Turn the upper floor into a revenue-generating unit or space for a caregiver or adult child returning home.
Creating “Social Collisions”
The homesite and community design create natural “social collisions” that make connecting with neighbors and friends easier. The orientation toward semi-private spaces at the front of the home encourages a natural flow from privacy to social engagement. In addition, the outdoor design includes an outdoor flex space for a yoga studio or swim spa for the convenience of exercising at home, or an outdoor living area.
