Why Smarter Buildings

In order to achieve a home that is truly connected with the people within it is all about the planning and design. This is the most common hurdle for aspiring Smart Home owners as the installations are generally either a last minute thought, sometimes even retrospective.

Think about the fundamentals of housing. When you are considering the size, shape and aesthetics you engage architects to help. When the building’s strength and structural integrity are to be assured an engineer is required.

For many this is when most new home or renovation concepts are put out to your builder for a proposal based on budget, time frames and quality of build. So aren’t we missing something? At what point did we design how this place is going to work!

At SmarterBuildings we predominately work with the generation of people who are striving for their dream home. A home that is designed as an extension of the people within and a home that over delivers on some of the key elements a home needs to provide in security, efficiency, lifestyle and simplicity.

SmarterBuildings design the newest and coolest home automation technology that has gone past the gimmicky products of the past to offer one-touch, intuitive control of the whole home in an integrated package that is robust, future proofed and above all, simple to use.

MORE FUNCTIONAL DESIGNS, MORE SIMPLIFIED LIVES

What we do

At SmarterBuildings we honestly believe that the difference between a home with ‘cool features’ and a home that is intelligent and aligned with the people within is all in the planning. For this reason we want, even need, our clients to develop an understanding of each of the steps and decisions required to truly achieve this.

We’ve all experienced new gadgets and gimmicks being thrust upon us and then been left trying to work out how it will benefit us. But if there was a way to first identify the benefits we need from our homes, then reverse engineer the whole process to then find the products and systems to fulfil our needs… Wouldn’t this be a better way? Well, that is the SmarterBuildings way.

So what is the best way to work out what we all need from our homes? Well we’ve got plenty of ways to help you out including books, webinars, design packs and consultancy services.

Sam’s first book, Homes With A Heartbeat, is the first step in unpacking your values and identifying the real benefits a SMARTER BUILDING can deliver.

Holistic Architecture: Going Far Beyond Just Buildings

Holistic Architecture: Going Far Beyond Just Buildings

The traditional view of architecture is that it’s all about four walls and a roof. But as Nat Cheshire and his firm, Auckland-based Cheshire Architects, prove, architecture can go far beyond just buildings. I recently had the pleasure of welcoming Nat on the Spaces podcast, and it certainly got the synapses firing. Nat and his […]
