St John's Wood Pied-à-Terre

The brief for this no expense spared St John’s Wood renovation called for a powerful home automation system to include multi-room music, TV’s, lighting control and electric blinds. However, space was at a premium and none of this equipment could detract from the beautiful and carefully designed interior.

Elegant and discreet installation

ClearSphere installed a Crestron multi-room audiovisual system, combined with Lutron lighting control and Lutron Sivoia electric blinds, to create a home automation system that enhanced the occupant's lifestyle without interfering with the interior aesthetic.

Crestron multi-room audio and video

The two core benefits of a Crestron multi-room audio-visual system are the ability to install all central hardware out of view in a central equipment rack and then control that hardware via intuitive and simple-to-use portable Crestron touch-screens.

Sky boxes; cinema receivers; music players and music amplifiers are all hidden away in an under-stair cupboard, maintaining an interior free of unnecessary clutter, while the touch-screens give instant access to music and and video throughout the home.

The living-room is equipped with a 5.1 surround sound system, using a combination of discreet Bowers and Wilkins CCM663 in-ceiling speakers, an ISW-4 in-wall subwoofer and Artcoustic sound-bar, giving impressive cinema sound with minimal visual impact.

The Master Bathroom is fitted with an Aquavision, built-in Bathroom TV connected to central sources via a Crestron 'Digital Media' video distribution system.

Lutron Homeworks Lighting

The property is is equipped with a Lutron Homeworks centralised lighting control system. Elegant Lutron keypads replace traditional light switches and let the clients choose from preset lighting scenes that get the best from the carefully designed lighting scheme. Lights can also be controlled via the Crestron touch-screens.

The Homeworks system can be programmed to run lights on a timer: Outdoor and feature lights can be set to come on in the evening and simulated occupancy lighting can be activated when the house is unoccupied.

Lutron Sivoia Window Dressing

The home is set around a secluded courtyard with large French windows that flood the ground floor rooms with light. The Lutron Sivoia blinds sit discreetly within ceiling recesses and silent appear at the touch of a button; giving shade during the day and privacy in the evening. A unique benefit of Lutron's Sivoia blinds is their ability to stop and perfectly align in any position, making them ideal for shading a sunlit room.

A Neat Result

ClearSphere installed a system that enhanced the aesthetic appeal of this home while giving the occupants the very latest in home entertainment. The result was a beautiful, entertaining home and another satisfied customer.
