TK Elevator Integrates API With Loupe Digital Art Streaming Service And Desk Intelligence Operations Platform at High-End Atlanta Residential Building

  • The Realm Condominium in Buckhead, Atlanta is the first residential building in the U.S. to incorporate TK Elevator’s Application Programming Interface with Loupe art streaming and the Desk Intelligence building operations platform
  • Since its launch in August 2022, TK Elevator APIs have been improving building operations and enhancing the travel experience

Atlanta, Georgia, January 05, 2022 – TK Elevator, one of the global innovation and market leaders in the elevator industry, has incorporated its Application Programming Interface (API) with Desk Intelligence and the Loupe art digital streaming service in the elevator lobby at the Realm Condominium in Buckhead, Atlanta. The installation expands TK Elevator’s infotainment offerings designed specifically to enhance the tenant experience through an immersive elevator experience.

Loupe is a visual content streaming platform that is transforming the way people view and acquire art. Loupe art streams complement a property’s unique brand identity and design aesthetic using Loupe’s proprietary classification system for a rapidly growing art catalog of fine art painting, photography, mixed media, motion, digital and NFT art, in combination with human-curation by the Loupe programming team.

Desk Intelligence is a building operations platform specializing in luxury high-rise residential buildings. Using a modular architecture, Desk Intelligence delivers uniquely custom integrations to elevate the residential experience and an easy user interface to manage it all.

“We are very excited to see this technology in action at Realm,” said Jeremy Rainwater, CEO Americas at TK Elevator. “Our connected elevators already provide our customers with data to run their building operations efficiently. Now, their elevator passengers can enjoy specially curated art as they travel through the property. APIs are gateways for innovation, and we are working together with innovative companies like Desk Intelligence and Loupe to create digital solutions that reimagine the future of buildings.”

These open interfaces can be used on units connected to TK Elevator’s cloud based IoT solution, MAX. Across North America, these APIs are being used in a variety of ways, including integrating elevator and escalator data into existing building management systems to monitor machine health in real time. TK Elevator APIs are also allowing tenants to summon and operate an elevator via their smartphone or wearable device. The technology is known as AGILE mobile.

“We welcome the opportunity to feature our acclaimed artists to modernize and transform shared common areas,” said Andy Hunter, Loupe Chief Revenue Officer. “Our Loupe for Business app combines the power of art and technology and makes it easily accessible for our partners to enhance and elevate residential environments.”

“Custom integrations like Desk Intelligence, Loupe and TKE are a perfect example of form and function,” said Jessica Alexander, President, Realm Condominium Association. “Themed art collections from Loupe keep our residents engaged, real-time elevator information keeps residents informed of potential delays and Desk Intelligence provides a central platform to manage the experience. These innovations enable the Board of Directors to deliver on their goal of providing unique resident experiences.”

Finished in 2006, the Realm Condominium is a luxury building rising 30 stories and standing 373 feet tall. The building features a 24-hour front desk, private pool, amenity deck with skyline views, firepit, two resident lounges with catering kitchens, lush landscaping with serene gardens and fountains and a two-level fitness center with streaming audio and Apple AirPlay — and the Desk Intelligence resident mobile app to connect it all.
