Building for the future: apartments designed for a 21st Century lifestyle


There’s no escaping it, we’re living in the digital era. 21st century technology is an integral part of how we connect with our friends and family, how we consume media and entertainment, how we purchase things, run our businesses and manage our finances. Yet despite this relatively few developers are embracing this exciting new technological revolution, and even fewer are thinking of what’s to come in the years ahead.

That’s definitely not the case here at Norup + Wilson. Unlike a lot of developers – stuck in a 20th century mind frame and barely considering anything past their finish date – we’ve wired fiber optics into the backbones of our apartments and have therefore ensured wifi connectivity throughout. It’s the stuff you’ve come to expect from your smartphone and even your car, so why not expect it of where you live?

The benefits of this are twofold. Not only has this enabled us to include as much exciting, cutting edge digital tech as is possible right now, but it also future proofs our projects by enabling integration with the next generation of technology, whatever that happens to be (hey, we’re great at what we do, but even we can’t see into the future!).

For example, All our developments are already scheduled to have keyless entry door locks. Instead of fumbling for your keys in the dark outside the front door, you’ll be able to stroll comfortably through the front door without even breaking your stride.

Many of our apartments come with or can be upgraded to have lights and fans that are controlled by an app on your smartphone (which can also be your access control to the whole building). Just think of how convenient it would be to be able to control the light and temperature of your house from anywhere while also not even having to bother carrying around your house keys!

The potential for smart tech connectivity to make your lifestyle more comfortable doesn’t end there. It’s possible for home devices like multimedia and air-conditioning to be controlled remotely through apps on your phone. Suffering through a scorching Perth summer day? Not a problem! When you’re about 30 minutes away from arriving home you can turn on the air con and play some soothing tropical tunes through your wireless speakers so that you arrive home to a cool, comfortable and relaxing environment.

As exciting as all that sounds, it barely even begins to scratch the surface of how the current digital revolution is going to improve our living spaces in the future, and there’s no better way to experience all that this exciting epoch has to offer than living in a Norup + Wilson apartment.
