Custom Lifestyles – We listen – We understand – We deliver
We are constantly learning from our clients. We understand that we need to find out what their ‘features and benefits’ are before we can even begin the design process.
When this Calgary inner city home was being built the client was looking for ease of use, reliability and dependable service first and foremost. They were interested in the ‘cool technology’ aspect but when the discussion turned to lighting some further investigation was needed.
Lights on – Lights off. Every house has that option. What do you want your lighting to do for you? LED lights are becoming the norm because of the energy efficiency, durability, design flexibility and zero UV emissions. With the combination of LED lighting and the internet of things the traditional incandescent lighting is rapidly being replaced.
Lighting created the heart and soul of this home. The exterior landscape lighting includes safety features such as the lighting in the handrails, motion detectors for the gate and perimeter of the building. The architectural lighting features in the domes and porch add a warm and welcoming feature.
The colour and intensity of a light source has a huge impact on our mood and well-being. The preferred light scenes can be saved in the Automation System. This lighting became an entertainment source, was relaxing and comfortable. What colour do you want today? Blue might not always be the colour of choice – change it. It’s easy.
Be creative. The client put careful thought into the features he wanted to bring to life. The stain glass in the office became an art piece with the back lighting as did the feature granite counter top in the bar area. The toe kicks all become ambient lighting with the safety features of night lights.
