The client wanted an elegant, yet easy-to-use Crestron control system that would integrate audio, lighting, motorized shades, and security cameras. We had previously designed and installed a system in the client’s first New York City brownstone, and we were thrilled to work on their new home—the former garage of prominent banker Willard Straight. The historic “automobile house” had been converted into a private home by its subsequent owner, who kept the ground floor as a garage. Our client transformed the garage into a foyer/gallery and built additional floors of living space. The Crestron system really brought the comforts of home to a building that was initially designed for vehicles and workers.
