- The largest hotel in the world with smart windows now open
- Wave Hotel is a central feature of fast-growing Lake Nona, a community that uses technology to enhance people’s health and productivity
- View Smart Windows have been installed in five buildings in Lake Nona, with plans to include them in more than 30 additional buildings
ORLANDO, Fla., March 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- View, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) (“View”), the leader in smart building technologies, today announced its Smart Windows have been installed in every room at the new high-tech Lake Nona Wave Hotel.
The hotel, billed as “the most technologically advanced hotel in the world,” recently opened in December. All 234 guest rooms, including 16 one-bedroom suites and two penthouse suites feature floor-to-ceiling View Smart Windows that use artificial intelligence to automatically adjust in response to outdoor conditions, keeping guests cool and comfortable without the need for blinds.
“With the Lake Nona Wave Hotel, we set out to integrate technology and hospitality in ways that delight hotel guests and improve their health and well-being,” said Jamie Bruce, Vice President, Hotel Portfolio at Tavistock Development Company, the developer of the Lake Nona community. “View Smart Windows align with every dimension of that quest—from delivering an unparalleled guest experience to enhancing guest wellness and improving sustainability.”
By maximizing access to natural light and outdoor views, View Smart Windows measurably improve occupant health and wellness. A recent study found that people living in homes with View Smart Windows slept an average of 16 minutes longer each night and reported 11 percent less anxiety and 9 percent less stress compared to those living in equivalent homes with traditional windows and blinds.
“View Smart Windows are a focal point among the innovative new technologies on display at the Lake Nona Wave Hotel and featured in many new buildings under construction in Lake Nona,” said Tavistock Development Company President Nick Beucher. “Our partnership with View is a critical part of our strategy to reimagine the built environment to improve how people live, travel, and work.”
View has worked with Tavistock Development Company on multiple buildings across Lake Nona, the 17-square-mile visionary community minutes away from Orlando International Airport. View Smart Windows have been installed in five buildings in Lake Nona across office, retail and hospitality projects and will be installed in more than 30 additional buildings.
"With Lake Nona, Tavistock is fundamentally reshaping the way that not only buildings, but entire cities are designed, built, and experienced," said Dr. Rao Mulpuri, CEO of View. “Lake Nona showcases what’s possible when smart building technologies are thematically integrated across the entire spectrum of real estate—from offices to hotels, apartments, hospitals, and more. We could not be more excited to partner with Tavistock to define and demonstrate the city of the future.”
Lake Nona Wave Hotel’s use of technology includes one of the world’s largest fleets of autonomous shuttles, the largest single-use facility of TOTO smart toilets, voice-automated in-room controls, and Rosie, the hotel’s robot butler, who complements food and drink delivery for events.
View is the leader in smart building technologies that transform buildings to improve human health and experience, reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions, and generate additional revenue for building owners. View Smart Windows use artificial intelligence to automatically adjust in response to the sun, increasing access to natural light and unobstructed views while eliminating the need for blinds and minimizing heat and glare. Every View installation includes a cloud-connected smart building platform that can easily be extended to reimagine the occupant experience. View is installed and designed into over 90 million square feet of buildings including offices, hospitals, airports, educational facilities, hotels, and multi-family residences.
