Technology does not have to tarnish elegance and sophistication in interiors

The feeling that hits when entering this stunning apartment is immense with its floor to ceiling windows, clean lines and open space. The rooms flow one into the next with tasteful furniture and elegant touches blending harmoniously with marble floors and sparkling chandeliers.

The owners wanted automation technology to be present and accessible but not the focal point of the rooms for sophistication and simplicity, so the team at high end AV specialist Knektd naturally turned to Creston technology to provide this.

A key aspect of the brief was to make sure all the automation was hidden. ‘It was really important to us that the technology was discreet,’ commented the homeowner. ‘We now have bespoke moving panels which complement our interior design and disguise the clever technology beneath. For example, when required we can press a button and the Damien Hurst artwork in the reception room will rise, revealing a 55 inch 4K TV.’

The residence is a great example of how much automation can be going on behind the scenes. Everything that can be controlled is controlled, but it’s not the main focal point. The automation technology blends nicely with the style of the apartment.
