This client was building a high end beach house to bring the family together for weekends and holidays. The house had to be capable of accommodating the kids, their partners and various friends in any weather. It also had to have the ability to entertain several groups of people separately but simultaneously and bring them together for large gatherings when required.
Technology was to be used to compliment the various entertainment requirements of the people using the house and allow a simple control interface allowing the owners and their guest to control the house both on and offsite with ease.
The home theatre in this lounge is all but invisible, with recessed speakers, subwoofer hidden in cabinetry and the 46” LED screen drops away out of sight when not in use, nothing detracts from the cosy feel and beautiful view.
Lights, Music, TV, Doors and Heating are all controlled from this wall mounted touchscreen hidden out of sight in a recess.
LED lighting, music av and heating are controlled from hand held remotes, the same remote controls the home theatre system in the next room.
The purpose built media room gives the client access to tv, sky, blurays, and pc sources like Youtube, Netflix and Lightbox. When not in use the tab tensioned screen rolls discretely away. Beanbags double the rooms seating capacity when needed for a family movie or the big game.
This 46” HD Panel drops away out of sight when not in use.
The pool room also has a 40” HD TV with recessed in ceiling speakers which is controlled by a handheld remote control pictured.
This home has the perfect balance of convenience, comfort and security with a high level of technology that complements the design elements of the house.
The extensive use of automation and lighting control throughout the house combined with simple keypads, touch-screens and iPad interfaces ensure the owners and their guest enjoy a high level of control at their fingertips.
The home technology solutions we’ve installed enhance the client’s enjoyment of their beach house and are the perfect complement to a relaxing family holiday.
