A future-proof home is all the rage right now. It’s a trend fueled by our increased reliance on technology and the desire for a space built with longevity in mind. While we cannot foresee what will happen in the future, we can better prepare for it with the help of tech-enabled homes.
The demand for a future-proof home started picking up even before the pandemic reached its height in the country. Wireless connectivity and security-related features made it to the top-searched amenities for the second half of 2020, according to Lamudi’s trend report, Indicators of Growth: Where to Invest in 2021. At the same time, open areas and multi-purpose spaces received more attention as homebuyers sought flexible spaces for changing lifestyles and habits.
Integrating these preferences with smart technology, key players in the real estate sector are now addressing the demand for homes that will remain relevant in decades to come.
Smart and Secure
The role of smart tech in a future-proof home is crucial to achieving the next normal of comfort, convenience, and peace of mind. We now live in a world where technology doesn’t only connect us with the rest of the world; it also protects our assets and overall well-being.
In One Sierra, the maiden condo offering of PIK, the use of high-tech security features is notable and well-timed. As property buyers now favor a safer space to call home, PIK and One Sierra answer this demand through intercom systems, 24-hour CCTV monitoring, and keycard access to the condo building’s main entrance, elevator cars, parking system, and other common areas. Besides increased safety, these innovations promote seamless technology, which is a rapidly emerging part of secure living.
Automation is also central to building future-proof homes like One Sierra. The development’s hallmark feature, an automated parking solution, puts it at the forefront of tech-enabled homes. This sophisticated system does most of the job for car-owning residents. They just need to drop off their vehicles at the parking area, and the system will safely do the parking for them. Adding to the convenience is a smart valet, which allows quick and easy retrieval of one’s car. One Sierra’s premium and automated parking system is the first of its kind for Metro Manila residential condos, bringing an elevated standard of living and unparalleled convenience.
Smart and Sustainable
Of course, we can’t tackle technological advancements without including sustainability in the discussion. Smart tech is popular for making lives easier by enabling tasks to be done in a few taps. But this advancement has a greater impact on the common good.
One Sierra, for example, allows its residents to live comfortably at a diminished environmental expense. Its modern green building features, such as eco-friendly sensor lighting, rainwater collection system, water-efficient fixtures, and energy-efficient LED lights, encourage resource conservation and carbon-reducing habits.
Each residence at One Sierra was crafted following green building requirements. PIK understands that it can enhance the design and efficiency level of its development to help address the adverse effects of the changing climate. Incorporating smart, sustainable features into One Sierra also transforms it into a healthy community, which is one of the sustainability features in demand in the new normal.
A healthy building with flexible spaces likewise creates a productive environment for its residents. At a time when everything can and should be done at home, spacious units with an open area, a home office, and multiple bedrooms are future-proof in the sense that they can adapt to both the inevitable and the planned changes in life.
Smart Buyers and Sellers
Forward-thinking property seekers are now ready to step into the future, carefully considering their options for a future-proof home. Meanwhile, sellers are becoming more aware of the long-term benefits of tech-enabled residences. And for sellers to thrive in a changing real estate landscape, it’s always essential to put their clients’ best interests at heart.
Concisely, what home seekers want is a property that can last for generations. It should be a home that adapts to present and future needs, a space to feel secure and thrive. One Sierra in the future-proof city of Mandaluyong ticks all the boxes. Its developer, PIK, the largest technology and homebuilding company in Russia and Europe, envisioned this project to bring an elevated living experience. Interested parties can personally witness the European quality and investment-worthy features of One Sierra in PIK’s showroom at Menarco Tower in BGC, Taguig.
With cutting-edge technology for home safety and eco-friendly living, One Sierra by PIK urges both property buyers and sellers to make the smart choice. Learn more about the project here.
