“I believe our homes, no matter the size, will need to integrate smart technology and features that support wellness more than ever. Our residential sanctuaries will need to incorporate more natural light and indoor greenery while serving as our everything…Our restaurants, offices, our schools, our theaters, our gyms, our game rooms, our sunrooms, our storage spaces, and our greenhouses.”
