The Ivy Lofts in Houston, TX will open in 2019, and will introduce the first micro-condominium living spaces to Texas. These sustainable, responsible micro-dwellings aim to revolutionize city living with 24 stories of condos that fit a kitchen, living room and bedroom in as little as 350 square feet.
To utilize all the space in the building, owners elected to install an HVAC system that required no equipment to be put on the roof, and chose DXS as basis of design to provide Daikin mini splits for each condo, and condensing units that could be placed on the patio without taking away from the architectural aesthetic. DXS provided 302 Daikin 15 series mini splits, as well as a variety of multi splits for the remaining 248 lofts in the facility. The Daikin equipment helped the facility achieve its desired energy efficiency while accommodating the zoning requirements and allowing for temperature control in every loft.
