Honda releases plans for energy-efficient smart home

The Honda Smart Home at UC Davis’ West Village has got lots of attention since it was opened earlier this year. (For the latest, see this photospread in Dwell magazine).

Now Honda is making detailed plans and information about fixtures and fittings in the energy-efficient home available for anyone to download. In a blog post, Honda project manager Michael Koenig writes:

In the three months following our launch, the response to Honda Smart Home has been truly amazing. We’ve hosted over a thousand visitors in Davis including architects, builders, researchers, academics, media, policymakers and enthusiastic members of the public. And we’ve received inquiries and proposals from businesses all across the world looking to get involved in green building.

Many of the people and companies we’ve met with wanted to know how they could incorporate what we’ve demonstrated into their own projects, or build upon what we’ve learned in their own research. We want nothing more than to facilitate this effort, so today, we’re releasing a batch of files the get the process rolling.

Simply go to hondasmarthome.com and click on the “downloads” tab at the top of the page to download the plans and files.
