The watchword here: invisibility. As All Digital notes, “The client and designers were very adamant about not wanting to see any in-ceiling speakers or any devices that could interfere with their unique design.” There are two elements that needed to command all the visual attention in this home: the clean lines of the interior, and, more importantly, the views from every window.
All Digital outlines some of the solutions here:
“For the audio subsystem, we chose Amina invisible speakers throughout the home to give a completely invisible experience with outstanding sound performance. We have a total of 16 audio zones and surround sound zones. In addition, we installed Triad low-aperture subwoofers to match the size of the Lutron Finiré lights that were also installed in the house.
“A Control4 panelized lighting system was installed with configurable keypads to minimize wall clutter. Lighting keypads also incorporate shades and media scenes. For lighting fixtures, we selected Lutron Finiré Prime recessed lights throughout the house.
“In order to blend in with the modern design of the house, all shades were installed inside pockets (custom flaps and hangers were used as well). A combination of Lutron drapery tracks and motorized shades are seamlessly integrated with Control4 using a Lutron HomeWorks processor.”
As for the rest of the home, a project of this scale demands attention to every detail, from exterior lighting to streaming music into the master closet: “Extensive collaboration and coordination with the electricians, interior designers, lighting designers, closet consultants, cabinetry installers, shade fabricators, landscape professionals, and HVAC was necessary to make this project a success.”
