In 1895 this Villa took its form nestled into the side of a little leafy valley and surrounded by dwellings of similar ilk in Auckland, New Zealand.
Through the years the house remained un-altered until this progressive family took ownership. With an amazing architect at the helm all trades were directed in this complete rebuild inside and out, maintaining the original character of the home.
The owners were the drivers here also directing their requirements quite succinctly and of course this included KNX, through Future Proof Electrical Ltd.
Technology in this age is important to us more and more and in this project it was embraced with enthusiasm. Through research it was concluded that the only solution for the home is KNX, to be connected in ways that had only been spoken about and seen over-seas was now a reality.
With careful consideration taken not only with the aesthetic of the home this included ease of control over function and this was delivered here.
