Contemporary Residence

The project

This award-winning Contemporary Residence located in Yorkshire is of ultra-modern design and construction. The property has stunning architectural features that include an entirely glazed wall, that curves to follow the shape of the circular inner courtyard, along with a large circular basement entertaining space.

Many bespoke technology solutions were implemented in this eco-friendly property to enable the homeowners to monitor and limit their energy consumption, they can see exactly how well their home is performing at any time. Alongside this performance monitoring we also had to ensure that all their chosen technology was simple to use.

We designed and installed an award-winning Lutron lighting control system, that compliments the stunning architectural features and interior design. The client can recall lighting scenes within specific rooms at the touch of a button, using customised in wall keypads, Apple iPads and AMX touch screen controllers. The intelligent lighting system, along with motorised window treatments, also react to ambient light levels via in-ceiling sensors, maximising the use of natural light and minimising the use of artificial light to create a constant level throughout the day.

A high-performance multi-room audio system using Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers was installed throughout key areas of the property. AMX high-definition video distribution equipment was used to deliver centralised video sources, including a Kaleidescape movie server, to all the televisions and projection systems around the home. Data and telephony systems were installed, including a whole-house telephone solution and a robust wired and wireless network to make sure fast and reliable Internet access was available from anywhere in the property.
