Best Multiple Scheme for a Property Developer
Winner: SMC for The Lancasters
This London terrace had fallen into dilapidation and drew upon the skill of architects, developers and interior designers to bring the development back in line with its Grade II listed status.
The plan was to create a unique fusion of traditional architecture and cutting edge design. Integrated technology was identified as significant in achieving this result and SMC has delivered AV, HVAC, lighting, shading, CCTV, security, door-entry and concierge communication, without detracting from the architectural splendour of the original features. To limit the impact on the interior design scheme, SMC decided on IP-networkable digital systems throughout. The company worked with Crestron to produce a custom made 4" VOIP touchpanel compatible with the IP-network routing.
Each apartment has been wired for sound throughout with keypads in place for volume control and source switching. The lighting schemes are unique to each apartment and the whole-home pre-sets vary depending on the location with all South-facing apartments having integrated shading options too.
A collaborative project involving Crestron and BPT's development teams produced a bespoke VOIP video entry system and further bespoke solutions were provided by Lutron who supplied a touchpanel designed around the interior colour schemes to control the lighting, HVAC, shading, AV switching, sourcing and volume. The result sees 77 homes combine a seamless blend of period architecture and custom installation -mid-19th century architecture and bespoke smarthome solutions with which the client is delighted.
