THE CHALLENGE

A tailored solution


Crafting a bespoke solution for a residence as unique as North Lodge posed its own set of challenges.

Among the family’s aspirations was to create a home perfect for entertaining. This was at the heart of many of the elements including the creation of a luxurious cinema room sanctuary, a pool room and spa which was to seamlessly transform into a perfect party space with acoustics to match.

Clarke Infinity was tasked with integrating lighting, blinds, security, and audio visual solutions into a cohesive and intuitive system, while also ensuring a luxurious finish and feel across the multiple floors of the stunning property.

THE SOLUTION

Effortless by design


The cornerstone of the solution lay in Control4, an interconnected platform which flawlessly linked lighting, audio visual and entertainment solutions, CCTV, and blinds via discreet touchscreen control panels.

Ease of use was paramount to the brief, and throughout the property, the solutions were designed with the family in mind. From pre-programmed lighting options to automated blinds and more, every aspect caters to their convenience. For instance, upon entering the Billiards Room during the day, the curtains, previously closed to safeguard the furniture from light damage when the room is not in use, automatically open, allowing the family to simply enjoy the game.

The remit of crafting a home with entertainment at its heart was music to our ears, and the solutions implemented across the property are both extensive and bespoke. They have been meticulously designed for the individual spaces, prioritising luxury and ease of use at every turn.

THE SOLUTION

Audiovisual perfection


The Pool Room was designed to transform into the perfect party space with a movable dancefloor and acoustics which would help create the ideal atmosphere. Acoustic treatments were applied throughout the room to create the foundation for sound, while hidden Sonance speakers provide a powerful audio experience when the party gets started.

The cinema features acoustic wall treatments for impeccable sound and a state-of-the-art 135-inch Adeo Screens FramePro screen for breathtaking visuals. Portable touch screen controls from Control4 add convenience, allowing effortless switching between a movie, match and more.
