A traditional stone rectory set in the Cotswolds may not seem the like the likeliest home for 21st Century smart technology but this major renovation and extension project will open your eyes to just what’s possible in a period property.
Bringing the benefits of modern technology into period homes demands a deep understanding of our craft which is then carefully married to the particular nuances of the individual property.
Our first task in the old rectory renovation involved the design of a structured cable network for the property – incorporating the bandwidth and connections for high speed internet, telephone and TV.
With five screens across the property, the owner – an enthusiastic music and film lover – wanted to enjoy quick and easy access to his centrally stored film collection wherever the family were in the home. Our touchscreen controlled solution does just that: intelligently, easily and with minimum fuss.
The traditional style and grandeur of the building remains, now carefully concealing a fully functioning smart home, proving that technology can enhance any setting or style of building. We can even monitor the system remotely, automatically installing updates or rebooting equipment so the family can get on with enjoying their home comforts.
