Building management systems today may provide the most positive added value in the areas of ventilation and cooling

Not only can a smart home simplify its residents’ everyday lives through automation, but certain solutions may even reduce the impact of the property on the environment, and can provide many security and safety features. In our series, you will learn about the world of smart homes. Our goal is to provide the appropriate knowledge for decision-making and for starting to design a house.

In a smart home, there are many things that can be automated and digitally designed around us that make our lives easier on a daily basis, whether it be lighting, shading or temperature control, or access control. These building management systems are designed to best suit today’s modern household needs also in terms of engineering, building maintenance, ventilation, cooling and heating. “When looking at smart homes from the perspective of windows and doors, the average person first thinks that doors, windows and shades may be somehow operated by motor. However, compared to this, the spectrum is a lot wider and individual versions can be mixed,” says Károly Lovász, Managing Director of KAV. Then he outlines in detail what variants might exist. “If the operation of windows and doors is integrated into a building management system, it offers many unique solutions. Some only test the condition of the product. The burglar sensor, opening feature, that is, for example, if a manually operated window is open, it knows that the ventilation needs to be turned off in the room. But there are many motorizing and automation options that may be adapted to the everyday life and habits of residents. The windows could be tilted at an angle if I walk in front of them, or if I use the restroom, switching on the light lets it know that the window must be opened and then closed back with a delay of five to ten minutes. Starting with these functions, you can reach as far as logging and examining fingerprint access at front doors, then customizing lighting arrangements according to the taste of the family member who’s arrived, turning on a music player, or activating other voice-controlled gadgets in your room that were switched off until then. If the residents are not at home, the system can mimic the family members’ habits based on the data stored; turn on the lights, release the blinds and open the windows as they do in their daily lives. This ensures that the use is visible from the outside so that burglars avoid the property. ”

However, building management systems can provide the most positive added value in the areas of ventilation and cooling. They combine the movement of windows and shutters with a variety of mechanical tools to minimize the use of and investment in energy. For example, in the spring, when it senses that the outside is slightly cooler than the indoor temperature, the system will open the windows slightly and calibrate a fine draft according to the wind direction. As it ventilates the house, it also takes care of shading, because it knows that when it is sunny, it will result in a serious heat build-up behind the large glass surface. But there are also systems that monitor cooling and heating. Let’s say the system may be programmed to receive permission to pull up blinds and let in sunlight in communal areas – living-dining room, kitchen, conservatory – in cooler times, constantly increasing the temperature in these spaces. When, for example, temperatures rises above 26 degrees in a given space (or it sees a prediction in the weather forecast), it suddenly sucks this hot air out of that space, and the multi-channel mechanical ventilation system delivers it to other interior or shaded areas. This way, through heat control, it sets the optimum temperature everywhere in an environmentally friendly way. In warmer periods, this process can also be programmed in reverse: if the system senses too much heat, it shuts the doors, lowers the shading, adjusts the amount of directed light entering the interior to achieve 100% effective shading and, if necessary, turns on the air conditioning. Not only do these solutions make life easier for residents, but they also minimize the impact of the property on the environment.

With unique windows to Norway
Aluminium windows and doors also play a prominent role in Norwegian architecture, not only in public construction, but also in residential buildings and condominium investments. The long-term goal of KAV is, after Iceland, to gain experience in Norway, so it applied for admission to the Hungarian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (MNKK). We talked about the possibilities with the founder of the chamber, Klára Jankovics, and Beatrix Kosztyi, foreign economic attaché, the secretary-general of the chamber

A refined aesthetic for doors and windows
The popularity of the minimalist style in architecture is one of the reasons that aluminium doors and windows entered the family house sector. Applying the principle of “less is more” to architecture led architects and designers to use unique solutions and austere or transparent surfaces. In a minimalist home, simple shapes and forms help create an atmosphere of harmony, where space itself serves humanity.

When a dreamt-of work of art becomes a reality
Properties being created in an ongoing KAV project may nearly be interpreted as works of art. No company with relevant references could be found, either in Hungary or abroad, for the implementation of buildings that were considered unique at the European level too. We talked about this special job with Mihály Fodor, the Managing Director of the implementing company, and András Havasy, the project’s Technical Director.

We build for the future rather than for today
Clear shapes, large glass surfaces, spacious interior spaces and creative use of materials – these are the main features of the most predominant architectural style of our era, minimalistic design, in which interest is outstanding in Hungary. However, the number of really well designed and built minimalistic family homes is relatively low. The property our engineers consider as one of the best designed ones our company has met in recent years was built in Budapest. During the project we paid increased attention to the design of large, liberally designed glass surfaces, essential for creating open spaces. We had a conversation with the developer of the house about what was needed to create this property.

The architectural design of glass structures demands special expertise
Although one of the most modern façade elements is glass, numerous problems can arise during the design process if the glass structures used have not been properly thought through. As to what makes these glass structures special, and why it is important for competent sector designers to deal with these building elements even during planning, we spoke with chartered architect György Mihály Stocker, reader in the BUTE Faculty of Civil Engineering, and vice-president of ALUTA.

Development by KAV of aluminium doors and windows with an all-glass look
Optivison© is unique in Hungary. (KAV is the only player in the small and medium-sized business sector to have developed aluminium doors and windows with an all-glass look for family homes.) Apart from KAV, no one among small and medium-sized enterprises has developed all-glass look aluminium fenestration for family houses. The system was designed to respond to the needs of our customers: we made the frame flush with the glass by rethinking the structure of tilt and turn windows and balcony doors. Our solution creates a ‘glass wing’ effect, making Optivison© systems the trend-setting doors and windows for modern family homes.

Rebirth of a Bauhaus villa
This year, the Bauhaus is 100 years old, and it is a great pleasure for us to take part in the renovation of a property displaying the marks of this school. When the Bauhaus appears as a description of a building, it is a guarantee of clean shapes, exciting spaces and quality materials. Even so, it is important to point out that although several Hungarian architects were in contact with the famous German school, there are hardly any Bauhaus buildings, in the strict sense, in Budapest. Péter Lenzsér, the architect, talked about how this building bears the hallmarks of style and how it is worth embarking on such a renovation.

The evolution of blinds
Climate change and increasingly sophisticated customer demands have accelerated the evolution of shading systems, not just of windows and doors. While in the past the goal was complete darkening, nowadays light control and maximum transparency are the main considerations. Thanks to this, most client choose lamellar and textile shadings.
