Residential: Hamilton’s stylish smart lighting control provides seamless functionality
The Project: A stunning six-bedroom home in the highly sought-after Burwood Park private residential estate, nestled in the heart of Surrey. This exceptional £4.75m property spans 7,449 sq. ft, offering four spectacular reception rooms, six bedrooms – five of which have ensuite bathrooms – secluded gardens, loggia and outdoor swimming pool. The heart of the home is the kitchen/dayroom that overlooks the garden and features bespoke white Quartz work surfaces that beautifully complement the room’s large marble feature panel.
The interior architecture was designed by Lucy Swallow Interiors, with its elegant style, lofty ceilings and exceptional light giving it a feeling of contemporary grandeur that’s perfect for both relaxing and entertaining.
The Brief: The property required a lighting control solution that would allow the homeowner to tailor their lighting requirements in each room and for different usage scenarios, with the ability to easily access these settings while being a stylish addition to the home’s design.
The Solution: Lucy Swallow Interiors and electricals company GS Electrical & AV appointed Hamilton to create a lighting control solution that was perfectly suited to the property and its functionality requirements, based on Hamilton’s easy-to-install Smart Lighting Control system.
Having worked with Hamilton on several projects, GS Electrical & AV installed 35 Hamilton switch plates and ten smart lighting control dimmer packs, allowing the lighting levels to be simply adjusted and specific scenes to be set and easily recalled. An additional relay pack was installed to control the LED lighting within the coffer ceiling in the dining room. This highlighted the beautiful recessed panel feature and makes for an even more impressive entertainment setting. To suit the sleek, contemporary feel of the property’s design, Linea-Vetro CFX Glass Touch Controllers were installed throughout the ground floor, finished in black. This controller uses the same technology as smart phones and has eight capacitive touch controls, four for pre-programmed selections and four for level control.
The first and second floors were fitted withHartland CFX Push Button Lighting Controllers
The lighting control system has a special ‘Home & Away’ device that automatically turns the property’s lights on and off using a photo cell timer clock - providing added security when the residents are away.
The Result: A lighting solution that is effortlessly controlled by stylish capacitive touch control plates that are in-keeping with the overall design theme, surpassing the homeowner’s expectation in terms of finish and functionality.
Greg Hall, director of GS Electrical & AV, said: “We’ve worked with Hamilton and installed this system many times, so we know that the quality and functionality was perfect for this project. We find the Smart Lighting Control solution very user friendly and extremely easy to programme, while providing excellent functionality for the homeowner. The Hamilton team is also extremely helpful and provides outstanding technical support when needed, which gives peace-of-mind when working on an installation such as this.”
