Overview

The owners of this home wanted to create a very resort style living environment which could be controlled very simply. They also wanted a lot of automated home management depending on which family member was entering and exiting the house and the ability to monitor this. The system that was designed had to cover all facets of automation including lighting, security, biometric access control, networking and audio-visual including a discrete home theatre.

The family consists of parents and their four children in their teenage years. The parents wanted to create an environment within which their kids would want to spend more time at home. Areas such as the gymnasium, theatre room and entertaining spaces were critical to achieving this goal. The lower level of the house was created as an environment within which to entertain and socialise and features a custom bar, a complete concealable home theatre system, a large entertaining space, sauna and a fully equipped gymnasium.

The main living level features a large alfresco entertaining area and a motorised TV which allows visual sources to be displayed in this area without having a fixed permanently viewable TV impacting on the aesthetics of the space when not in use. The Living room audio-visual also had to be invisible, so Stealth Acoustics speakers were installed in this area with an Ultralift motorised mercury TV Lift. Each of the bedrooms features Stealth Acoustics invisible speakers which had to be integrated in amongst the ceiling installed heating and cooling systems.

At the rear of the house there is another entertaining area featuring a swimming pool complete with outdoor music.

Home Automation allows the client to control every area of their home and set entertainment scenes covering all facets from the touch of a button. Lighting and blinds are also on timers to operate in conjunction with light levels, sunrise and sunset. Control4 enabled us to achieve everything the client desired in this home. Control4 lighting control was used for automating all of the lighting and blinds within the home. A Control4 intercom system is combined with a Biometric fingerprint reader and a Ness automated alarm system to provide security monitoring of the property and complete access control. Control4 is also integrated to the Lilin NVR and cameras so that all of the cameras can be viewed within one app. A Pakedge network supplies the backbone to the complete system and allows the home system to be monitored for stable and reliable operation.

Every facet of this home is incredibly detailed and impressive. The client’s request was that the theatre had to totally disappear but still perform. A Barco Projector was installed within an Ultralift motorised projector lift and a Screen Innovations cinemascope slate electric screen was concealed in the roof cavity for the visual part of the theatre. Audio is provided by Anthem Statement electronics with concealed Martin Logan speakers. The front speakers were built into a custom acoustically transparent false wall.

This project is a stunning example of what can be achieved in a modern home utilising home automation. It also showcases the level of detail that the team at Life Style Store go to when completing a system of this nature for a client.

LIVING SIMPLY

The sky is the limit for this family, whose modern home utilises the best in home automation

The owners of this Woolwich home wanted to create a resort-style living environment that could be controlled simply and easily. Exquisitely designed by BKH Architects to complement the magnificence of its iconic Harbour Bridge backdrop, this brand-new residence commands east-facing water views to the city skyline. The owners requested a lot of automated home management, with individual scenes triggered depending on which family member was entering and exiting the house, and they wanted the ability to monitor this. The system to be designed had to cover all facets of automation — lighting, security, biometric access control, networking and audiovisual, including a home theatre. The family consists of parents and their four teenage children, and the parents dreamed of creating an environment so that their children would want to spend more time at home.

Areas such as the gymnasium, theatre room and entertainment spaces were critical to achieving this goal. The lower level of the house is dedicated to entertaining and socialising and features a formal lounge with custom marble wet bar, a complete concealable home theatre system, a large entertaining space, a fully equipped gymnasium and a steam room handcrafted in terrazzo.

The client’s request was that the theatre totally disappear, yet still perform. A Barco projector was installed within an Ultralift motorised projector lift and a Screen Innovations CinemaScope electric screen was concealed in the roof cavity for the visual aspect of the theatre. Audio is provided by Anthem Statement electronics with concealed Martin Logan speakers. The front speakers were built into a custom front acoustic wall.

The main living level accommodates a spacious alfresco entertaining area with harbour views, as well as a living room with a motorised TV that allows visual sources to be displayed without using a fixed TV, which would have a negative impact on the space when not in use. This living space and all bedrooms feature Stealth Acoustics invisible speakers that had to be integrated in the ceiling and installed among integrated heating and cooling systems built into the ceiling panels. The convection cooling and heating systems are monitored and regulated by Control4, as are the heated terrazzo floors throughout the home.

At the rear of the house is another entertaining area with a swimming pool and outdoor music. Automation allows the family to control every area of their home and set entertainment scenes from the touch of a button. Lighting and blinds are also on timers to operate in conjunction with light levels, sunrise and sunset. “Control4 enabled us to achieve everything that the client desired in this home,” explains Vinod Christie-David, managing director of Life Style Store. “Panelised lighting was used to automate all lighting and blinds within the home. A Control4 intercom system is combined with a biometric fingerprint reader and a Ness automated alarm system to provide security monitoring of the property and complete access control. Control4 is also integrated to the security cameras so that all cameras can be viewed within one app. A Pakedge network supplies the backbone to the complete system and allows the system to be monitored.”

Every facet of this home is incredibly detailed and impressive. From the awe-inspiring skylit foyer with wall-to-wall Italian marble, through to the heated terrazzo floors and gold leaf feature pieces throughout the home, no detail was overlooked. This project is a stunning example of what can be achieved in a modern home that utilises home automation. It also showcases the level of detail that the team at Life Style Store goes to when completing a system of this nature for a client.
