How They Did It: Bellevue Hill

Ed Wenck | Apr 30, 2019

For this project (which won the 2018 CEDIA Award for Best Integrated Home, Level IV, Asia Pacific) AVD picked a Savant platform to control every aspect of this home: AV, dedicated theater, CCTV, HVAC, lighting, floor heating, heated towel rails, and much more.

This three-story home — with amenities such as a pool, tennis court, home gym, two wine cellars, and two garages (one with an automotive turntable) — has incredibly complicated climate automation that not only controls blinds and shades but evacuates warm air from the ceilings. The project also includes a home theater with a 186-inch 2.39:1 format screen, extensive “three-layer” security (internal, perimeter, and external), and 77 custom designed (by AVD) lighting switch plates.

But it’s the client testimony that really tells the story here: “Our experience with AVD and their team from the design phase to installation to execution/integration and after-service has been incredible. We completed our home eight months ago, and I can’t speak more highly of the platform AVD created for us. We have a very large home with many elements, and our interface is simply fantastic. The systems capabilities are brilliant, but more importantly, they are so user friendly. The members of the AVD team were diligent, professional, and timely in the execution of our project. I truly can’t recommend AVD and their team more highly.”
