We’re delighted to have won the KNX UK 2022 award for Residential Project of the Year with our Surrey Barn Conversion Project.

We used the KNX open protocol to ensure that the owners of this passive house can get the best return on their investment in efficiency comfort and wellbeing.

Here’s how we did it…


The owners of this property selected New Land Solutions to design and install their home automation system after visiting the Jung showroom in London and experiencing the KNX building system technology showcased there.  They were seeking a system for their new build passive house, that would provide the ultimate solution to energy efficiency and contribute to a better environmental footprint. 


Having designed a passive house with a ground surge heat pump and solar panels for optimum energy efficiency, the clients needed a smart building solution that could automate multiple functions and applications for optimal coordinated control. 

The awnings, window treatments, heating, humidity control, AC, and lighting are all controlled using components and applications from a range of manufacturers. KNX allowed the entire system to communicate seamlessly in a single communication network. 

The clients are big music lovers and wanted an emphasis on AV, with a high-quality audio integrated into the home automation system. KNX allowed us to interface the building control with the Savant smart home system for a premium solution that offers a high level of personalisation and uses Sonos as the music platform.
