The McKechnie Family LIFE Home is a cutting-edge research facility with top-of-the-line technologies to assist in novel research endeavors.



The home simulation space within the McKechnie Family LIFE Home mimics a typical two-bedroom home dwelling but has the added benefit of a one-way observation area as well as a cutting-edge camera and microphone system. Research participants are able to interact with innovations in the environment in a natural setting and be observed from afar to ensure a natural interaction.


Our collaborative spaces allow for events, classes, community programming, design activities, and more.  The highly-flexible spaces can be reconfigured into a multitude of different works and social spaces to promote creativity and collaboration. 


The outdoor spaces surrounding the facility provide additional spaces for social, research, and collaborative activities.
