Surbana Jurong’s (SJ) Sustainability team, in collaboration with the Innovation Programme Office, was invited by Build Eco Xpo Asia, one of Southeast Asia’s leading green building exhibitions, to curate Future Home, to showcase how sustainable technologies can be seamlessly integrated in future homes.

The booth is composed of modular pockets of spaces, featuring smart technologies in an integrated living environment. These include new façade glass in the living room; domestic vegetable farming shelves in the kitchen; grey water recycling systems in the bathroom, where waste laundry water can be processed and looped back for non-potable use; home lighting systems that respond to ambient light conditions; as well as home safety monitoring systems.
