The elements of life

The industrial age drew a clearly defined line between the workplace and home. Today, in the information age, this border has dissolved: we work increasingly at home or in third places. What effect does that have on how we live? Our modular building concept creates different settings for work and living that can adapt to different situations and needs. Modern families are essentially a group of individualists. Each has their own group of friends, media habits, and own rhythm. The house design of the future is about creating a flexible space that accommodates both distance and closeness, privacy and communication.
