Our intelligent Model Apartment contains generation-specific products and intelligent home utilities and can be used as an interface and a communication and information platform in training sessions, workshops and viewings organised by customers and service providers. The products in the apartment have won the "universal design award" and impress visitors with their simple and self-explanatory functions. The next stage of the project involves plans to create a service platform and a centre of expertise.
