KB Home’s 4 Principles to Success in Future-Minded “ProjeKt”

KB Home is building a home of the future, taking builders, homeowners and the industry as a whole on a journey, but it didn’t do it alone.  

“Any collaboration starts with an idea—an idea of how would we, together, demonstrate the beauty, the technology and what a 2020 to 2050 house would look like,” says Dan Bridleman, senior vice president of KB Home sustainability, technology and strategic sourcing.

This concept of collaboration led to the creation of the KB Home ProjeKt, which made its debut to the public on the show floor of the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, in Los Angeles.

The KB Home ProjeKt gave Greenbuild attendees a 2020-plus vision of future homes.

Bridleman states that the primary goal was to design a home that demonstrates what could be included in the next three decades of housing, and KB Home achieved this through a large collaboration with industry partners and thinkers. 

“The ideas of many coming together into one, that’s what demonstrates the true beauty of what is in this house,” says Bridleman. “Also, it’s a house. It’s a nest. It’s beautiful. It doesn’t look like a piece of technology. It looks like a home you can live in.”

Collaboration was a crucial component on the ProjeKt. But when it comes to the home itself, there are four integral principles that KB Home pursued in constructing the optimum abode.

“First and foremost, it’s a home. It’s a sanctuary,” says Jacob Atalla, VP of sustainability initiatives for KB Home. “It needs to be comfortable. It needs to be a place where you come to relax and rejuvenate.”
