What do you imagine the homes of the future will be like? We take a look at the latest innovations in technology and sustainability that aim to maximise comfort and convenience at home through what are known as “Active Houses”.
Thanks to our constant innovation, we make all the latest technology available to be enjoyed in our Gestilar homes. We are working to meet both the current and future needs of our customers as well as to offer them the best possible quality of life.
Here is a simple example: Why continue to use your central heating once your home has reached its ideal temperature?
Although these already exist on several buildings and structures around the world, green roofs and vertical gardens are set to “dominate” the aesthetics of architecture in the very near future. They have been hailed as the perfect solution in our quest to make our cities more sustainable, by reducing pollution and also providing a space and the opportunity to grow food (urban allotments), that will eventually lead to a more self-sufficient society.
Yes, you have read that correctly. This concept has been proposed for interior design projects to be implemented in the very near future. This will see the expansion of the internet of things from the kitchen to the entire home. Already many new homes have intelligent fridges that are able to create a shopping list based on the food stored inside them.
For example, can you imagine your mattress being able to monitor the pressure of your body and “adjust” itself so that it is always as comfortable as possible? You will also be amazed by smart carpets and curtains that are revolutionising home safety by acting as “alarms”. They are sensitive to any sudden changes in the atmosphere (such as a fire, breakage, etc.), alerting you to anything unusual happening.
Innovation also embraces improvements to the materials used in the construction of buildings. The use of ecological and recycled materials is becoming increasingly a common practice, as is the incorporation of systems that not only save energy but that also generate renewable energy.
