In ARK we are focused on designing smart houses that look for the inhabitant convenience and take care of nature. This is possible because of domotics —or house automation— which represents the revolution of the home of the future and domestic life.
The word domotic comes from the latin “domus” which means “house” and is the way that technology could be applied to upgrade life at home. Its benefits are as wide as its applications like energy saving optimization, the household appliances’ performance and other devices. It checks the water, conditioning, or lighting control that creates ambients or for a functional use. Besides, upgrades safety because the user can check all different home areas and improve communications.
The most important benefit is the complete home control that, thanks to this technology, let people manage and access the house’s system from a mobile device in order to improve comfort. For instance, you can send a command from your smartphone to your kitchen to put the microwave on or turn on the air conditioning.
Nowadays, the role played by domotics in luxury architecture is more than just creating value; is about designing the proper place according to the needs and feelings of the inhabitants. Live at home is more than staying seated on the sofa and watching TV, is about relationships and synergies between space, life, people, and technology is the catalyst that could bond all these factors. In ARK we could not understand luxury architecture without technology. For us it is the last ingredient in the formula for a perfect home.
