NextGen 'Disaster Resistant' Demo Home in West Seattle

NextGen 'Disaster Resistant' Demo Home in West Seattle

The NextGen Home Experience is a project out of Bellevue, Washington, that seeks to showcase the features that would theoretically define the home of the future: connectivity, disaster resistance, energy efficiency and green friendliness. Basically, the house would minimize environmental impact, but takes a prepare-for-the-worst approach to the eventuality of climate change.

The house is 4,100 square feet, with three bedrooms and four full baths. The design doesn't break any aesthetic barriers, but that doesn't appear to be the main concern here. In fact, even the descriptions of the how the disaster-resistance is realized (reinforced! concrete! I-beams!) makes us think of a bunker.
