Modern living and working in the 21st century are based on the very latest technology, design and architecture, which have been integrated into concepts for homes. The house of the 21st century functions at the touch of a button. Future-driven technology ensures the value of property is retained in the long term. "Smart Home" technology plays a key role in this. This was the conclusion reached by leading experts from the Austrian real estate sector at the seminar "Smart Home: more value, more profit, more comfort" staged in the new "Lounge of Commerce" on Vienna's Stubenring by Immobilien Magazin and checkpointmedia with the support of the Vienna Chamber of Commerce. The evening also saw the presentation of a study compiled by the market research firm Karmasin on "Stylish Living in the 21st century".
