The client directed his interior designer to create a James Bond 007 experience within this five story townhouse. This ultimate bachelor pad overlooks the Hudson River and Upper Manhattan. Initially built for spec and then with construction too far along prior to our engagement, Gilmore’s Sound Advice could not re-wire for a centralized, paneled system. Therefore, we turned to Lutron QS wireless to handle the varied mix of warm dim and tunable lighting fixtures. This necessitated an additional mix of din rail, DMX and 0-10 drivers. One of the hurdles was to retrofit wiring into the Living Room’s 16 foot high, 3-tiered chandelier, which required the DMX remote drivers to be located in the canopy. The same conditions were presented with the (11) Cove lights, which were also DMX tunable white fixtures. Additional lighting requests for interacting and programming with the security, garage door, the scheduling of Lutron QS wireless Shades, Triathlon shades and Outdoor lighting scheduling were successfully accommodated.
Gilmore’s Sound Advice loved the challenge that his project brought us, and believe that Lutron Wireless QS saved the day for this client. Additionally, the entire Lutron Lighting and Shade systems seamlessly translate into a complete Savant AV distribution and control system. Whether watching a movie in one of (2) theaters, or pouring a glass of fine wine from the custom wine cellar off the main kitchen, to enjoying time in the cigar room, or as a throng of guests climbs the stairs into the Living Room, every room speaks to the Essence of Pleasance. When the client is home at night, the light scenes make this a home 007 would be proud to call his own.
