Everything You Need to Know About Our Whole Home Project

Our first-ever custom-built house combines the best in wellness and technology.

CQ’s Whole Home Project Concept House celebrates living with wellness and technology — from a kitchen designed to make you healthier, to an entryway and garage organized to eliminate clutter and promote calmness, to every space around and in between.

This first-ever, custom-built house will showcase ideas and innovations that feed happiness and drive well-being in every facet of our lives. The Whole Home Project Concept House will be the culmination of CQ’s year-long wellness initiative. We are working to build out a real home that embodies all the wellness attributes and examples of the project’s themes.

The Whole Home Project Concept House will be revealed in a special multi-page editorial feature in the November 2018 issue, on newsstands October 23rd.
