The client was in the process of designing a luxury holiday villa on the island of Mykonos and engaged with Lifestyle Technologies to deliver a system that would include 5-star hotel-like features. The main objective was to include aspects that would resemble the famous Mykonos outdoor nightclubs, as the client would be hosting loud house parties with DJs and live bands.
The interior design features modern touches that blend the natural environment and breathtaking views, so the technology needed to be play into this.
Multiroom audio provides music throughout the property — both inside and out. Lifestyle Technologies integrated a true professional sound system, similar to ones installed at outdoor nightclubs in Mykonos. For the pro sound system, there are two different locations where a DJ or live band can connect their consoles and take over the system automatically.
Lifestyle Technologies selected a Lutron HomeWorks QS lighting system with white Palladiom keypads. The discreet flat white Palladiom keypads don’t interfere with the interior design, while the engravings are extremely simple for anyone to understand. Occupancy sensors in the guest rooms are programmed in a similar way to guestroom occupancy sensors in hotels.
Multiple astronomic timers are provided for the lighting controls. Pre-set scenarios include outdoor lighting to be activated 30 minutes after sunset, two hours after sunset, and from 2am until 30 minutes before sunrise, mainly to provide security. In addition, there is another astronomic timer for the non-summer months where lighting comes on two hours after sunset for security purposes.
