FluxHouse™ atypical, aesthetic, affordable and sustainable smart home, built through intelligent manufacturing and industrialized methods coupled with digital innovations in construction processes.
We build in design parameters to respond to different geographical locations and various specific needs. The design is also intended to give residents considerable flexibility in customizing the space to various functions. Adaptable buildings with customizable layouts enable higher occupancy turnover.
We create a variety of aesthetic, spacious floor plans to abundantly leverage natural lighting, maximize living space and optimize energy efficiency. In the 1,900 square feet design, a series of spaces including living and dining area, study room, bedroom, children’s room, kitchen and bathroom unfold in a continuous loop around a lively internal courtyard. An abundance of natural sunlight is provided by the wall-height windows and the off-center zen courtyard.
We aim to provide high quality solutions at a price point that is affordable for most low income families. Using our proprietary technology FluxSystem™, we can create a wide variety of designs using a system of only 9 prefabricated components, each performing multiple functions. Most importantly, the small number of components and simple constructs are well suited for large scale industrialized manufacturing processes. This serves to reduce capital investment requirements, facilitate automation and drive in quality and reliability, thus enable us to scale housing solutions to deliver genuine affordability and beautiful design for everyone.
We design FluxHouse™ buildings to be sustainable in its production, construction, and use. They are engineered to withstand natural disasters including fires, floods, earthquakes and hurricanes, and designed with passive building principles to reduce energy consumption by increasing insulation, reducing heat loss and air infiltration and using heat from the sun. Building envelopes composed of FluxPanel™ are designed and manufactured using high efficiency, low carbon footprint insulation materials.
It is smart above all. Enabling technologies such as Internet-of-Things (IoT), building controls, robotics and digitization can now be inexpensively integrated into the building process with reliable quality and high performance. Our fully integrated IoT interfaces are designed to smoothly incorporate other smart home technologies from the outset. The real-time IoT data generated through occupancy sensing allows buildings to learn and adapt to the behaviors of its occupants. Taking this to scale for widespread adoption could have a significant impact on energy efficiency and quality of life. Admittedly, added connectivity also brings future privacy and security concerns. We are committed to resolving those new concerns by developing new products and services that are inclusive and meet the needs of the entire community.
FluxHouse™ 1.0 in the United States:
FluxHouse™ 1.0 is designed and constructed according to a code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
We believe that the untapped potential benefits of manufactured housing namely standardization, automation, purchasing leverage and modern quality control systems are essential to solving the increasing global affordable housing crisis that many nations are experiencing.
As part of a larger trend toward the industrialization of construction, the United States is amongst the leading countries that value prefabrication as a powerful strategy for reducing cost and improving quality, and that incorporate this strategy on government and commercial sector agendas.
The HUD in particular, has been playing a key positive role in creating manufactured home industry in the US and allowing it to benefit from the economies of scale by setting up nationally preemptive code, so that standardized designs and products can be deployed across regulatory boundaries at a national scale.
