The objective for this 12,500-plus square-foot family home in Cheshire was to provide a fully integrated residence as part of a complete renovation of an existing property. The project truly encompasses the ultimate integrated home with the perfect synergy of architectural /interior design and technology.
The client already had a cinema room but as it was quite far away from the main living space, they found that it didn’t get used as much as they would like. Intuitive Homes wanted to give them a better big screen experience than they had previously enjoyed, but all in the convenience of their primary lounge: an open plan for their kitchen and dining room where they spend most of their time. The team worked with Future Automation and a custom canvas maker to create a huge mechanism that opens two 2.5m square canvasses to reveal an 85-inch 4K TV. The canvasses were sent to an artist who the interior designer commissioned to create the impressive diptych painting that looks just as good when split on either side of the TV or as a large landscape painting when the TV is off.
This property has a variety of Future Automation mechanisms to hide the larger TVs and leave the clean and modern looks of the interior styling when not in use.
