LivingHomes continues momentum, commencing construction on its second major custom project. Through a unique partnership with WIRED Magazine – this exemplary modern home will be rigged with the best modern green living accoutrements and serve as a show house. Drawing on a myriad of sponsors – ranging from BMW Hydrogen to Bosch to Valcucine to HP to Cookie Magazine – the home will feature state-of-the-art goods, blending high tech seamlessly with high design. Slated for completion in late Fall 2007, the WIRED LivingHome will be put on the market and be available for purchase by conscientious consumers and designophiles.
