What if a home could improve upon your five senses?
Great Gulf homes in Canada, Etobicoke's Centennial Park neighbourhood have created this new age home to enhance your life and lifestyle. It is the first of its kind and they call it Active House. Their approach is the efforts of a team of Denmark and Canadian scientists determining what in a home can be improved upon with todays technologies to make it the best possible experience.
Our sense of sight is improved in the daytime so they positioned skylights with automated shutter systems and Sun tunnels that open to allow a maximum daylight factor. When it rains the sunlights sense it and close automatically .
The indoor air quality is healthier with two systems, one mechanical and one natural. In tandem, this makes for potentially better sleep habits. Like those Cottage fresh air deep sleeps we all know and cherish.
With the triple glazed windows and Great Gulfs pre-fabricated home construction the acoustics provide an improved hearing experience throughout the home.
Energy efficiency is perfect to the touch. Better construction, freshwater consumption, energy supply, demand all reducing the dependency on fossil fuels make this home touch all of your senses in a positive way and more.
Three Active House principles:
- Comfort: the building creates a healthier and more comfortable life
- Energy: the building contributes positively to the energy balance of the building
- Environment: the building has a positive impact on the environment.
Home is a safe haven for your family and the Rogers Smart Home is infused into this home with their wi-fi technology ready to sense danger whether it be physical or natural. A water sensor in the basement will trigger alarms if there is a flood. Even Tesla is getting in on the act with its Powerwall system, not only a backup system but also it manages your energy used and consumed.
