Automation + Biophilia

Mecho's automated solutions are designed to maximize daylight + views by raising shades, and keeping them up as much as possible without the risk of glare. The sun regulates our circadian rhythms, which controls everything from sleep to metabolism. Access daylight is crucial for aging populations who may spend a majority of their time indoors and are increasingly reliant on the built environment to provide a circadian stimulus.
