Media and Security Solution in a 16th Century Home

    The brief was to design and install a fully integrated media and security solution sympathetic to the aesthetics of this beautiful 16th century home with easy, streamlined control systems. It was important to the homeowners to avoid unattractive wires and to provide simple yet effective control over their home.

    They wanted a fully integrated television, Blu-ray, Sky and Mac technology in the media room, controlled via a single remote. Enable devices to be concealed and controlled behind cabinets. Introduce a wireless multi-room music streaming solution in six rooms, controlled via iPhone, iPad or dedicated controllers. Provide a comprehensive security solution including gate automation and intruder alarm.

    Oxfordshire Cottage

    From the Client

    “We knew that integrating so many technologies into such an old building was going to be a challenge, but Chris Lewis worked hard to carefully conceal the technology. With latham plaster walls and ceilings, and wooden joists, they had their work cut out, but the end result works beautifully and doesn’t detract at all from the aesthetics of the building. We are absolutely delighted with the solution.”



    The Result

    Chris Lewis Smart Home successfully designed and installed a concealed media solution that is completely sympathetic to the aesthetics of this 16th century Oxfordshire cottage. The homeowners are delighted with how seamless the integration of technology is within their period property.
