At Austurhofn, Every Home is a Smart Home.
Located in Reykjavik’s historic Old Harbor, Austurhöfn offers more than 70 classically-designed homes. Featuring sweeping views of the bay and the center of Iceland’s capital city, Austurhöfn sets a new standard of luxury living. Every unit features cabinetry, appliances, and fittings from renowned European manufacturers. To distinguish Austurhöfn as a staple in upscale homes, the developers brought customization to a whole new level accommodating the diverse range of needs and lifestyles seen in potential homebuyers.
In 2019, we at TSP Smart Spaces were approached to establish smart technology solutions for their new luxury condominiums. What occurred was an exciting collaboration between multiple teams spanning across the US, UK, and Iceland to provide a myriad of smart space packages and options for potential buyers.
Introducing Smart Technology into Homes
By choosing an Austurhöfn apartment, you are also choosing proven smart home technologies. Each home at Austurhöfn comes with a base package that includes lighting control, smart thermostats, a smart host, and 2N access control. Carefully selected by our home automation experts here at TSP Smart Spaces, this contains the essentials for anyone new to smart space technology.
While this is an excellent start for any homeowner, it barely scratches the surface of the possibilities smart technology can bring to your home. The challenge that arose was how to create technology solutions that appealed to the diverse needs and lifestyles of potential homeowners.
Customizable Packages for Every Homeowner
To solve this challenge, we created custom packages at each level (Plus, Premium, and Bespoke.) Each package represents a different tier of smart home integration carefully selected by our smart technology experts that incorporates audio, visual, lighting, shades, and security.
While the Base Package contains only the most essential elements, the Plus Package and Premium Package offer more robust technology options such as universal remotes, motorized shades, and audio upgrades. The Smart Home Bespoke Package is reserved for homeowners looking to integrate all the bells and whistles smart home technology offers.
While every package delivers a different integration level, the ability to customize each package is where this solution shines. For audiophiles who aren’t ready to upgrade to the next package tier, specific audio upgrades exist within their given package to bring to life the aspect of technology they are most passionate about.
Creating customizable technology packages gave the property developers a competitive advantage by providing home buyers cutting edge technology without additional investment, opening them up to the unlimited options offered by smart home technology.

A Myriad of Options
With customization options spanning audio, visual, lighting, shades, and security, the possibilities offered can be overwhelming for someone new to smart home automation. Faced with this challenge, our team needed to create a way to present the Smart Home packages available at Austurhöfn in a simplified and easily digestible format that highlighted the benefits and experience smart home technology provides.
The solution needed to be understood not just by potential homeowners but by the sales team at Austurhofn as well so they can shine a light on the homes’ most considerable competitive advantage. What resulted was a well-received award-winning brochure that opened the door to smart home technology for future homeowners.
An Award-Winning Brochure to Guide Home Buyers
Our design team worked in collaboration with our product experts to develop an award-winning brochure to demonstrate the full customization options and benefits of smart home living to potential owners. Inspiration for this brochure came from luxury car specification books, which present a myriad of both technical and aesthetic options in a clear format for technical and non-technical audiences alike. The Austurhöfn Smart Home Specification and Price Guide features 28 pages of beautiful imagery and details for every package available and highlights the incredible capabilities smart home technology unlocks in your home.
The brochure walks you through all 4 Smart Home Packages available to help you find the solution that fits your lifestyle and experience desired. Showcasing the available upgrades for audio, visual, lighting, and aftercare services, potential owners can begin to envision how their future homes will come to life. Designed to be easily digestible by non-technical buyers, the packages outlined are color-coded and written in an easy-to-understand format.
In addition to developing this brochure, the our Icelandic technical team provided training for the Austurhöfn sales force to support, educate, and streamline the potential buyer’s journey.
