Solar Decathlon

Product: AirKey
Size: 1-100 units
Facility type: Residential buildings for communities
Country: Switzerland

The interdisciplinary teams had the task of developing an architecturally and technically innovative solar house with a high level of living comfort that would be able to meet the future social, ecological and economic challenges. The houses were built in summer the of 2014 in Versailles then compared and evaluated in ten disciplines. The AirKey system by EVVA was a key element in the complex project. AirKey can be operated by NFC-enabled smartphones and satisfies all the demands of a flexible, modern high-end access control system. Thus "in house" rooms are used differently by users and accesses are created dynamically. "my room" serves as a private bedroom, "our room" is a divided space like the kitchen or living room, "your room" is the fitness room or music room and finally "space+" is the area that serves as a connecting space. Granting the accesses is at least as dynamic as the residents of this promising living concept. The project won first prize in the “Comfort Conditions” category in the end – which might have had something to do with the convenient access control system.
