The “IQ Home” is a smart home housing model designed from the inside out to support independence, confidence and an active lifestyle. The project is a partnership between RLPS Architects and Masonic Village, Elizabethtown, PA, to extend the time that residents can successfully and actively age in place before moving to a higher care level.
The IQ Home became a prototype for implementing new ideas in design and technology integration.
The IQ home pairs intentional technology with the thoughtful design of physical elements and building systems to support aging in place.
The proud residents of the first “smart cottage” at Masonic Village at Elizabethtown were eager to share their experience with others.
Mindful design focuses on preventing falls, reducing hospitalizations and championing confidence in aging independently.
A new independent living housing model applies transparent technology to keep residents socially connected while aging in place.
