Luxury Belgravia duplex goes with Hamilton Litestat30 May 2014
A £7.7million luxury duplex in Belgravia, London, UK, has been outfitted with a Hamilton Litestat lighting solution based on the company’s lighting control system, Mercury.
The property encompasses over 3,250sqft spread across two floors. The renovation and build of the duplex itself embraces the magnificent original features of the building while at the same time creates elegant modern living space throughout. Comprising entrance, reception, dining, cloakroom, kitchen/hall and three bedrooms all with en suite and a dressing room within the master – the layout is logical and flows from one area to another. The decor seamlessly combines timeless grandeur with cutting edge – a scenario with which Hamilton is both well versed and expert at accommodating.
Mercury, the company’s comprehensive, intelligent, easy-to-use dimming and control solution was installed throughout the property. It delivers complete control of a variety of lighting scenarios; from simple dimming to scene-setting programmes, which can be set, stored and recalled with ease. A bespoke system was built to accommodate the requirements of the project. The installation included a master control hub, wall-mounted Hartland CFX plate satin stainless control plates and a remote control facility via iPad/iPhone using Hamilton’s downloadable app.
Each control plate was individually designed and built to meet the exact specifications of the function needed within each room. For example; by the entrance to the duplex, a Master 86mm x 86mm control plate has been installed, which incorporates eight push programmable buttons, LED’s Indication on scenes, four scene recall plus four raise/lower, on/off buttons and an IR receiver. Other rooms, such as the bedroom, used a combination of master and slave control plates, controlling the main room lighting and bedside lamps respectively. Every button on each plate had a purpose.
