The KB Home Projekt Home of the Future constructed in the nationally ranked master-planned community of Inspirada in Henderson, Nevada incorporated smart technology, health measuring and monitoring, optimized energy and water use performance, and efficient factory-based building technology to promote the physical and emotional health of occupants. AndersonBaron partnered with KB Home, Hanley Wood, Delos, and KTGY Architecture + Planning in development of the concept. AndersonBaron’s focus on the home was to provide an outdoor environment and overall community concept that takes a similar approach to intelligent design and integration of technologies built on improving the emotional well-being of the home and extending those benefits into the entire community. The homesite and community design also creates natural “social collisions” that make connecting with neighbors and friends easier and the orientation toward semi-private spaces at the front of the home encourages a natural flow from privacy to social engagement.

 

HOME

AndersonBaron’s dynamic landscape design centered around their “Community ConNEXTions” concept with emphasis on fitness enrichment, healthier appetites, reviving social engagement, and nature’s medicine, its ambience. Community ConNEXTions are the innovative environmental offerings that promote taking advantage of the NEXT opportunity to socially engage by the three pillars of social revival: PLAY. GATHER. DINE.

The PLAY element of the concept home included the infinity spa with an elevated yoga deck that combines therapy and fitness within an intimate space and presents a premiere location to balance nature with the built environment around the home.  The GATHER element included grill retreats perfect for bringing the same prime location of fellowship as the kitchen to the outdoors, and fire pit lounges which provides one of the greatest spaces for maximizing mental restoration and social relaxation as an extension of your home’s comfort. The DINE element included a green wall system that provides the home with the clean air, aesthetics, and therapy to improve health while giving you more space for other amenities that fits your lifestyle just right, and vegetable gardens that provide health benefits that many don’t always have the luxury of taking advantage of (ex. better freshness, no chemicals, no cost at the market, etc.)

 

COMMUNITY

AndersonBaron’s “ConneKted Community” concept focused on respecting the value of privacy while enriching the extension of home into an environment that fosters successful community integration including designing and building “connected neighborhoods” that foster higher levels of social engagement through active spaces and flow. The health of home and community are revived interchangeably by the impact of social collisions. Community features include the “share hub” experience designed to meet the needs of community interaction such as car sharing; the “our yard” concept that exclusively connects all homeowners to a series of integrated green spaces that promotes social engagement while physically bonding them to the outdoors; and community dining areas with unique “farm to table” options for all home owners. Walking/bike paths were also strategically included for leading people from their homes to dedicated fellowship environments. The “ConneKted Community” offers 4x more open space, 31% more homesites, and 41% less roads/infrastructures.

 

“Where Tomorrow Lives” was the guiding principle for the KB Home ProjeKt—a BUILDER Concept Innovation and Learning program—that brings a future set of standard features and technologies for healthier-living single-family homes and communities within view of the present, and within the means of family home buyers.
