The INTEGER Millennium House is a demonstration house in Watford, England that opened to the public in 1998. The house was originally intended to showcase innovations in design and construction, building intelligence, and environmental performance. The INTEGER design showcased many innovative features, including environmental technology such as a green roof and a grey water recycling system, home automation that included a building management system and an intelligent security system, and innovative technical systems such as under-floor trench heating.

The origins of the INTEGER Millennium House date to May 1996 and a seminar about green building, which catalysed the formation of the INTEGER building design and consultancy team to "evaluate available design and technical solutions to improve housing performance". The INTEGER hosted thousands of visitors, and influenced mainstream construction.
