Smart Home Design
After being recommended by Belvedere Construction as the AV integrator for the project, Global AV Group worked collaboratively with the Belvedere team to seamlessly integrate all of the high-technology sound, video, lighting, automation, and security systems with the striking design of this new-construction Hamptons home. As with every A/V design project Global takes on, the process begins with understanding the client’s objectives and then creating a plan for delivering the ideal audiovisual solution that’s aligned with their priorities and intended use of the space.
Initial planning and design began well before ground was broken and Global created all of the relevant CAD drawings in house which allowed the team to reduce turnaround time and expenses while remaining nimble and responsive through the inevitable rounds of changes and edits. Global’s AV installers were on site shortly after the frame went up in order to pre wire the entire house for sound, video, lighting, and automation.
Throughout the process, Global was challenged to produce big, immersive audiovisual experiences while keeping the components sleek and nearly invisible.
Multi-Room Audio & Video
As you enter the home, guests have a clear view of the great room which showcases a 65" Samsung frame TV that is seamlessly recessed into the wall above a custom glass fireplace. We also installed Martin Logan Axis speakers flanking the FrameTV, all using flush-mounted grills to put the finishing touches on the minimalist design. Looking through the glass reveals a separate living space with its own dedicated built-in TV and surround-sound system using Martin Logan Sistine in ceiling loudspeakers with JL Audio in wall sub woofers. This design allows for flexible viewing options allowing both rooms to enjoy different programming or you are able to watch the same show simultaneously - perfect for Super Bowl parties!
In-Home Movie Theater
Most people are familiar with “home theater” setups but for this client, Global designed and installed an in-home movie theater complete with stadium seating for 12, Vivitek cinema-grade projector and a 180" Severtson screen. To replicate the immersive surround-sound experience, found in commercial theaters, Global AV Group installed Martin Logan Monument 7XW in wall speakers for LCR, Icon 3XW for the side and rear surrounds, IC8 in ceiling speakers, a pair Martin Logan Dynamo 1000x subwoofers making a 11.2 system. The surround system is processed by Marantz SR 8015 AV Receiver and speakers powered by PowerSoft amplification.
Global implemented and configured a Control4 home automation system as a user friendly and reliable method for the home owners to operate all of the home’s audio-visual, security, and temperature controls from within any room or from outside the home! Touch-screen control surfaces installed in the walls feel familiar and intuitive to use while providing a sleek and modern functionality.
To help protect the family and all of the high-end audio-visual equipment in the home, Global AV Group designed and installed a multi-room security camera system that gives the owners the sense of security and peace of mind they wanted. A total of 40 Digital Watchdog cameras were installed throughout the home. They can be monitored from anywhere in the world through the use of Control 4 automation and touch panels.
