This stunning integrated home takes the best of subtle, user-friendly technology and transforms a large modern living area in Cheshire.
Setting the tone
The aim of every one of SONA’s projects is to enhance the living space. While tech adds value and convenience, we ultimately want to improve our clients’ lives – which is just what we managed to achieve with this luxury integrated home.
Having worked with this client on two previous homes, we had a clear vision of exactly what they’d need. We held preliminary meetings to discuss their goals, both in terms of aesthetic and performance.
Every client’s need is different. They may want better security, more intuitive tech, or simply a space to entertain. With this client, we identified five key needs:
- A simple, discreet operating platform
- A lighting system that was both open-plan and intimate
- Floor to ceiling glazing with motorised window treatments
- An artificial skylight
- Full integration across all systems in and outdoors.
We benefitted from a contemporary architectural design, featuring a coffered ceiling that could accommodate white and colour change lighting. We needed it to be open and airy, but also cosy when required.
It was imperative that all systems were discreet and intuitive. We based our installation decisions on high-performance, non-intrusive technology.
