SAN JOSE, Calif., January 5, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – See, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) (“View”), the leader in smart building technologies, today announced a partnership with a home design company Nabr to reinvent the future of urban life. SoFA One, their first development in Silicon Valley, will set a new standard for healthier, more experiential, greener and smarter residential developments.
Co-founded by world-renowned architect Bjarke Ingels and leading development professionals Roni Bahar and Nicholas Chim, Nabr is a one-of-a-kind ‘design living’ company offering personalized and sustainable townhouses that will be co-designed with each resident. . Nabr homes will be built with sustainable materials and will be carbon neutral in their operations. The homes will deliver technological elegance and experience, with View providing the converged infrastructure and network platform to enable a wide variety of residential and smart building applications.
“The homes of the future will adapt to people and the environment, not the other way around,” said Bjarke Ingels. “At Nabr, we’re fundamentally rethinking every aspect of residential development, from design to ownership to operation, to benefit people and the planet. View will be instrumental in this transformation by providing a flexible technology backbone that can be continually adapted and upgraded to improve the resident experience and enable new functionality, all while saving energy.
All Nabr homes will feature Smart View windows, which automatically adjust to provide continuous access to natural light and exterior views while minimizing heat and glare. Smart windows reduce energy consumption for cooling and lighting by up to 20%, while generating significant benefits for the well-being of residents.

Additionally, View’s cloud-connected smart buildings network, View Net, will power all connected products in Nabr developments, such as smart locks, access controls, air quality sensors, smart thermostats, parking and other residential and community applications, all on one secure platform.
