The WATG/IDEO team created "Haptik" (a Greek term meaning to experience interactions) based on a sense of touch and created a juxtaposition between sustainability and luxury by redefining the guest experience without sacrificing either ideal. Among the innovative winning strategies were the many energy-reducing features such as an "all-off" switch to ensure lights are automatically turned off based on passive infrared sensors (PIS) and room conditioning equipped by a four-pipe horizontal fan-coil system. Additionally, water use was also key in reducing environmental impact, as the Haptik suite includes a Trombe wall in the shower that captures solar heat to warm the shower water and a graywater irrigation system that filters and recycles shower water to outdoor gardens and landscaping.
