Brutalist to Modernist

Brief: The original property was a 1960s semi-detached bungalow that had been in the client’s ownership for over 10 years, primarily used as a holiday home. A decision was made to give the property a complete renovation, taking the building back to its foundations. The client & interior architect both wanted to achieve an automated home that was simple to use & didn’t impact on the limited space available in the property. Security was also a major issue for the client.

Solution: To overcome the limited amount of space the racks & lighting panels had to be assembled in the loft space. Not only did this free up space but it also meant that the client had no visible hardware in the main living areas.

Lighting: Control4 was the method of choice throughout to control the pre-set lighting scenes. The design for the lighting included RGBW colour changing lights in all the bathrooms & Kitchen Dining areas.

Audio: Distributed sound was integrated into every room plus the outside areas. Monitor Audio speakers were used and controlled via Control4. All speakers were mounted into the ceilings to prevent them impacting on the space.

Network & Integration: Majik House created a reliable internal Network structure which then allowed for successful 3rd party integration. Heating control was operated via Heatmiser which allowed for complete control over the property. A Texecom Alarm System was installed which alerts the client when the system has been activated.
