How to Smart?

WITH Hartela

Hartela is building an ambitious smart neighborhood in Oulu. How to enslave technology for the sake of life quality of the neighborhood residents?

Better life & Wellbeing

Background

The upcoming Verstas apartment complex in Karjasilta by Hartela will provide homes for 750 residents with a true smart living twist. The quality and cost-efficiecny of living are the key drivers for us when considering the means of communal use of the smart features. The community feeling created by cooperation of residents via e.g. shared services need to be the priority instead of technology itself, as it doesn’t provide added standalone value. How might we create attraction with value instead of technological features?

Challenge

We want to avoid the common pitfall of going tech-first instead of prioritizing the value it creates. The behavior and motives of future residents regarding the facets of living as a phenomenon interest us at a deeper level in the search of true value in being a part of a smart neighborhood. How and with what kind of support are we able to create understanding, ability and excitement towards these new ways of living?
