Client: Passivhaus Barn Project

Date: 2021

BRIEF 

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.
