Cotswolds Family Retreat
The aim of this project was to create a quaint yet luxury home away from home for a family based outside of the UK. Global home management was key.
Please note. Some images have been changed to protect the anonymity of the property owners and their family. Occasionally stock imagery has been used to do this. Full project photos, including before and after photos are always available on request and with the owners permission.
This mid-size cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds underwent a total refurbishment and extension, at which point the owner took the opportunity to add a full smart home system.
We provided a smart lighting system using Rako’s wired lighting and shading system, giving the owner remote control over all the lighting and shading systems within the property.
Security was offered in the form of Lilin security cameras, which are accessible across the globe, giving the owner the ability to check in to the property from anywhere in the world.
Rich media options are displayed on the latest LG 4K OLED screens.
Control was provided on a combination of iPads and RTI handheld remotes, offering the owner the freedom to roam between zones using a mixture of desk mounted and free-to-roam devices. Each iPad was multizonal and so could be used to turn on or turn off any zone from any room.
The project was the perfect blend between brand new technology and traditional craftsmanship.
