Connected living experience

Welcome to Smart Living

The world is changing and so are our homes and the way we live in them. The drivers of change are social megatrends and technological developments that create new needs among tenants and homeowners. Smart Living has created a new style of living that offers greater quality of life and security. As market leader for networked living in Switzerland, bonainvest Holding and its subsidiary bonacasa offer unique added value with their Smart Living concept: sustainable architecture, networked house technology and individual living services.


Welcome to the Smart Living Loft

With the Smart Living Loft, bonacasa has created Switzerland's leading platform for this new style of living. In cooperation with our partners from the realms of architecture, construction, building technology, digitalization and science, we have created a model space of 180 m2 to show how networked living enriches, simplifies and makes everyday life safer. Bathrooms without thresholds, showers with energy recovery, smart lighting, 24/7 emergency call service, intelligent parcel acceptance systems, functional kitchens - in short, the whole world of smart living can be discovered, touched and experienced in one place. The Smart Living Loft also serves as an ideal meeting place to develop new products together with partners and to try out proven products with visitors. Be it a workshop, a panel discussion or a meeting - with or without culinary accompaniment from our catering partner.


Welcome to the future

Although bonacasa has installed Smart Living in more than 1000 apartments built by the parent company bonainvest Holding at 23 locations in Switzerland and although bonacasa also has over 6500 apartments under contract and managed by external business partners, we regard Smart Living as a work in progress. We keep our finger on the pulse and do not rest on our laurels in order to be able to offer our end and business customers ever smarter solutions.




Our model for success

The four-stage model for Smart Living from bonainvest Holding and its subsidiary bonacasa has proven itself a thousand times over and is constantly being further developed. The individual modules are interlinked and function interdependently. It quickly becomes clear, for example, that the most modern house technology can only work if it is provided for in the building design. A later integration would incur high costs and is often not even possible. From the selection of suitable properties to the service management platform for the Living Services, bonainvest Holding and bonacasa have a secure lead in the rapidly growing market segment of Smart Living.
