Discipline: Professional Concept

LIFECORE is an all-in-one utility unit supplying water, drainage, electricity, lights, air conditioning, kitchen and bathroom. Placing it in any empty space transforms a dwelling instantly and its compact body creates more living space. The new drainage pumping technology requires no underfloor piping, allowing more flexible layouts for evolving lifestages. It can be easily rearranged like furniture with fewer building restrictions, and embedded IoT technology manages eco-friendly and comfortable living. It reduces planning, costs and installation time for architects / planners, and it is ideal for temporary housing (in case of a disaster), too.
