The pool area features 10 Amina speakers plastered into the perimeter bulkhead and a subwoofer hidden discreetly behind the acoustic slatted wooden panelling. The speakers and sub in the garden and terrace areas are hidden completely in the landscaping and flower beds. These zones can be controlled independently, or easily linked together with the pool area, which features a waterproof TV on a pull-out wall bracket.
The video distribution system incorporates a 4K multiviewer, which allows all screens to be turned into a virtual video wall. This is used regularly in the fitness suite and in the kitchen on a Samsung Frame TV, where it displays Sky and CCTV simultaneously.
Being a large property with numerous keypads and touch panels, Perfect Integration programmed the lighting system with ‘shared’ scenes, meaning that when the client adjusts his ‘entertain’ scene, the updated scene is then deployed to all applicable keypads and touch panels. The finish of the various Lutron Palladiom keypads was chosen to complement the décor of each room.
Tuneable white Occhio pendant lights were installed in the office for circadian lighting. The client can choose a white ‘colour temperature’ or a daylight simulation mode, which enables him to artificially ‘lengthen’ the days in winter.
The motorised window treatment — which has over 60 shades, most of them being unique — utilises Lutron Sivoia QS horizontal tensioned roller blinds, Palladiom QS rollers, Roman blinds, custom length pockets, custom poles from two fabricators, standard rollers, and custom rollers with a bevelled corner.
