Client: Traditional Farm House

Date: 2021

BRIEF

The project was a complete renovation of a listed farmhouse and all associated outbuildings. The interior design is in keeping with a traditional farmhouse style, meaning a traditional modern style of AV and building control integration would have looked out of keeping. KNX allowed us an innovative approach to the project, where the focus was on concealing as much of the technology as possible and using fixtures and fittings that were in keeping with the traditional style. 

We moved away from the traditional KNX style lighting controls in favour of more a traditional switch plate by Meljac with Jung connectors to control the lighting functions, the flexibility of KNX allowed us to use any manufacturer devices to communicate with each other, meaning there were no technical or design limits to the project. 

The project consists of the main house and an additional 5 outbuildings, all of which needed to be linked giving global control of lighting, heating, and security. This was challenging due to the structure of the buildings but KNX allowed us to run a single cable to each of the outbuildings to provide a single distributed building. 

KNX used with the Basalte Home app allows the owners to regulate the entire property temperature remotely to prepare the house for when they arrive and for maximum energy efficiency.  With remote security monitoring and sight of all technology and plant through our premium Digital Butler service, they have complete peace of mind when the property isn’t in use.
