This stunning holiday home was the winner of the 2018 TIDA New Zealand Architect new home award.

A control system was commissioned to provide scenes for the homes lighting simplify the control of the HVAC, motorized blinds, louvers, and outdoor heating.

Special attention was given to the climate of the house which is required to stay regulated year- round. To achieve this the house automatically responds to being occupied or unoccupied and adjusts the heating system to suit.

Two surround sound systems and multiple zones of architectural speakers make up the audio/ visual system, all of which is discretely racked within the garage so as not to disturb the minimal aesthetic of the interiors.

Multiple security cameras provide real time imagery of the residence and record footage upon sensing motion that can be viewed from anywhere in the world.

A customized iPad app can control the house whilst the owners are in residence or abroad.
