For this installation, Kapital Estates, the developer of this ambitious project, needed to achieve outstanding quality and exclusivity befitting a duplex set in the heart of Belgravia. The property encompasses over 3,250 sq ft spread across two floors and is valued at £7.7million.
The renovation and build of the duplex itself embraces the original features of the building, and at the same time creates elegant modern living space throughout.
The property comprises 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 combines timeless grandeur with cutting edge – a scenario with which Hamilton is both well-versed and expert at accommodating.
This stunning project presented Hamilton Litestat with a perfect opportunity to showcase its bespoke decorative wiring accessory ranges and to demonstrate the impressive ability of Mercury®, the company’s unique lighting control system.
The slim and elegant Hartland CFX® plate, in a satin stainless finish, was recommended and selected from Hamilton’s extensive style and finish options, for its contemporary but timeless elegance. Mercury®, the company’s comprehensive, intelligent, easy-to-use dimming and control solution was installed throughout the property.
A bespoke system was built to accommodate the requirements of the project and deliver complete control of a variety of lighting scenarios; from simple dimming to scene-setting programmes, which can be set, stored and recalled with ease.
The installation included a master control hub, wall-mounted control plates and a remote control facility via iPad / iPhone using Hamilton’s downloadable app.
Every control plate was individually designed and built to meet the exact specifications of the function needed within each room. For example: on entering the duplex you are met with a Master 86mm x 86mm control plate incorporating 8 push programmable buttons, LED’s Indication on scenes, 4-scene recall plus 4 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.
The requirements of quality and exclusivity were delivered within a competitive budget – far exceeding client expectations.
For the client, time was saved, hassle eliminated and peace of mind maintained. Hamilton provided a single-supplier solution, offering a comprehensive choice of plates, stunning range of finishes, and state-of-the-art lighting control to guarantee the installation ran smoothly.
In addition, Hamilton’s bespoke design and production service, Savile Row, ensured that every control plate was unique in both function and form.
