The Smart House is a 160 square-meter, two-story home/laboratory dedicated to research and development. It is closed off to the outside world – except between research programs – to ensure the data gathered is as reliable as possible.
We receive clients in the 270-square meter communication center in front of the Smart House, from where we can remotely observe and interact with the house.
The Smart House project is the product of five years of work: it took three years to design and manufacture all of its features and technical specifications based on the architect drawings and two years to build the house.The Smart House is the first building in the world that will have both environmental (BREEAM®, LEED®) and thermal (Bepos®, PassivHaus®) certifications.
The Smart House has a north-south exposure and the roof is fully covered with Sunpower® photovoltaic panels (south facing), with an average production capacity of 15 kW (19.7% yield).
