Fundamentals of good design
"A house is a perfect machine for living in. Bathrooms, sun, hot and cold water, adjustable temperature, hygiene, beauty..."
– Le Corbusier
An intelligent home concept
The main objective of a residential automation system is to greatly improve the comfort of the home and thus enrich the quality of life for its occupants.
The residential automation industry is relatively new, and there is no code or standard covering all the aspects and complexities of the way we live. The technology integration market is rapidly expanding, and it is no trivial matter to identify those good solid solutions that have a future, while sorting out the trendy ones.
Thus, the intelligent home concept goes far beyond the simplistic interpretation of a home full of equipment that reacts based on the users commands or decisions.
From the functioning point of view, sophistication should translate into simplicity, and never into complexity.
From an aesthetic point of view, the system should surprise, never shock.
Based on our own and shared experiences, as well as on a comprehensive market and technology study, our proposals are based on what we call “fundamental conditions for a good design.” Our team, making an effective use of Ikatu’s product lines, will turn these concepts into reality as can be shown by our project portfolio.
