ABOUT THE PROJECT
The main objective of this project was to renovate two city apartments into one home and to create a completely integrated environment. The clients’ primary requests were for a seamless integration blended with aesthetics and interior design. All systems were to be integrated with the building’s intercom, including audio, video, HVAC, shades and a home network.
The system is based on a Crestron control system, which easily manages the home’s subsystems, making operation simple for all members of the family and staff.
Challenges were presented in the placement of devices, as this is an apartment environment: narrow studs, extremely limited space for racks and low voltage distribution, and very tight tolerances for placement of any device meant finding creative solutions.
