iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

This project is designed to make use of empty homes by installing a smart hub and using second-hand local furniture and construction waste to renovate them. Once ready, these homes are listed on the app. Subscribers gain access to any of these renovated homes around the world and stay for as long as they wish, paying without the hassle of complicated paperwork. This process is made seamless thanks to a smart hub, which users connect to at the first home they visit. The hub doesn't miss a thing about you and is compatible with any home offered, creating the perfect personalized environment instantly.

This is an absolutely brilliant concept!
Jury-Statement
Seeing the word “CONGRATULATIONS” popping up in our emails had us in shock. We are really thankful that a project we dedicated our senior year in college to, and a project we believe can lead to major positive change in all communities has been awarded the IF Talent Award. As designers, this award gives us a sense that our projects are taken seriously and can hopefully one day become a reality.
