Central Park West
This system epitomizes the successful merger of form, function and style. The home had a clean, modern feel, and our work needed to convey the essence of the client’s style. A renowned architect designed every aspect of the spatial, materials used and furnishing of the apartment. We had to work closely with him not to affect his vision of the apartment for the client
We provided all the advantages of modern technology and seamlessly installed it in a pre-war building, utilizing space in the most efficient manner. The apartment occupies a beautiful setting five stories high overlooking Central Park, which provides a lot of natural lighting. The clients wanted privacy from surrounding apartments and passersby, but didn’t want to jeopardize their view. We implemented a practical, yet attractive solution: Savant system controls, Lutron Sivoia dual motorized shades with solar and blackout shades in the bedrooms, and solar shades in the living room, dining room, breakfast area and kitchen. They allow the beautiful view of Central Park to remain the visible focal point of our client’s lovely home. We created an entertainment environment for a busy family with wonderful gathering locations to watch television and listen to music.
The Savant Control system manages seven zones of audio to provide easy access to Internet streaming content via two Logitech Squeezeboxes and a CD player. A Lutron Homeworks lighting control system was installed to allow for simplicity, elegance and energy-saving benefits. The Savant Control system also manages automated Lutron Sivoia shades as well as five zones of HVAC.
Television viewing components were also a major piece of the project. The client specifically wanted to have outstanding television viewing areas throughout the apartment. In addition to having television systems in the master bedroom and children’s bedrooms, TVs were also strategically incorporated in the living room, playroom and breakfast room.
