Future buildings

We spend 90% of our time in buildings, either at work or at home. The world’s environmental challenges dictate that these buildings need to be sustainable ecosystems in themselves, but they should also foster our health and well-being, enhancing productivity and quality of life.

Improving buildings through smart design or renovation is a relatively easy way to have a major impact on our health, quality of life, and the environment, and it’s an investment which remains implicit in a building’s value.

Through our VELUX model homes project, we’ve demonstrated how tomorrow’s buildings can be built using today’s technology, and by monitoring these model homes and studying the interaction between home and residents, VELUX has created a blueprint for future housing that offers solutions to some of our most important societal and environmental issues.
