A luxurious, fully integrated smart home.
Celebrity couple Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan had a dream to build their perfect home. Their intention was to create a luxurious and versatile space, as unique and special for a quiet night in in front of a movie as for a fun-filled night of glamourous entertaining. At the heart of making this dream become a reality was a fully integrated and automated smart home, security and entertainment system, designed by Clarke Infinity.
A versatile home that has the wow factor
Mark and Michelle had a truly grand vision in mind, making the most of glorious countryside views while also protecting their privacy and security as a celebrity couple. This was a home that also needed to be incredibly versatile – providing a cosy and homely feel, that also offered an unrivalled aesthetic finish that has something of the wow factor. The challenge of designing an integrated and automated security, entertainment and lighting system that delivered total control in an intuitive and beautiful way was picked up by the Clarke Infinity team.
When Simon came to me to tell me I needed a lighting design I thought to myself, what are you talking about? Now, I know. It has just been incredible. The lighting controls are simply the best thing in the house. I love the Homely button. Simon said to me to choose a name that meant something to me and Michelle and that word is engraved on the switch, so with the press of one button we get the home’s settings exactly as we want them. It’s a game-changer!

An entire home system that provides the perfect balance
With huge open vistas from the main living areas, Clarke Infinity installed Lutron blinds. These automated blinds open and close at the touch of a button to provide the perfect privacy and security, partnering ground-breaking technology with high-end design. The blinds are virtually silent in operation, the blinds give the impression of simply ‘floating’ up and down, and are controllable via an app, control keypad or even voice control. There are also benefits of energy efficiency, keeping in heat but more importantly preventing solar gain from direct south facing sun light and offering better temperature control, while also providing the space with a very different feel from day to night.
The blinds operate in sync with Lutron’s Lighting QSX system which features pre-programme settings offering completely bespoke control, from All Off at the end of the night to Welcome Home that sets the lighting and blinds exactly to your preference. Masterminded by Lutron Alisse Wall Control Switches, the system designed by Clarke Infinity also includes wall control switches with tailor-made buttons configured with custom engravings for personalised light control.
The Clarke Infinity team designed the whole home system individually to Mark and Michelle’s needs, including a comprehensive security set up that makes the couple feel secure whether they are at home or away and incorporates remote access cameras and lighting. Delivering the perfect balance in atmospheric interiors, lighting, entertainment, security and interactivity, this dream house is a real joy to live in.
