Urban Chic

The home's interior employs a lot of natural wood and stone, and the clients had a preference for low lighting with accents. The home integration team worked with the designer and client to create custom lighting scenes that would highlight stone and wood features such as the wood staircases, the cove ceiling in the kitchen and stone surfaces in the en suite bathroom.

Urban Chic

Control elements in this system include four Crestron in-wall touch panels, six Crestron hand-held remotes, and full wired and wireless network access.
