Residential Duplex, Belgravia London

20 May 2014
Case study

The project
Elegant duplex apartment within a prestigious residential development, Belgravia, London.

The brief
For this installation, Kapital Estates, the developer of this ambitious project needed to achieve outstanding quality and exclusivity befitting a duplex, set in the heart of Belgravia, encompassing over 3,250 sq ft. spread across two floors and valued at £7.7million.  

The renovation and build of the duplex itself embraces the magnificent original features of the building while at the same time creates elegant modern living space throughout. Comprising entrance, reception, dining, cloakroom, kitchen/hall and 3 bedrooms all with en suite and a dressing room within the master - the layout is logical and flows from one area to another.  The decor seamlessly combines timeless grandeur with cutting edge - a scenario with which Hamilton is both well versed and expert at accommodating.

The solution
This stunning project presented Hamilton Litestat with a perfect opportunity to showcase its bespoke decorative wiring accessory ranges and to demonstrate the impressive ability of Mercury®, the company’s unique lighting control system.

The slim and elegant Hartland CFX® plate in a satin stainless finish was recommended and selected, from Hamilton’s extensive style and finish options, for its contemporary but timeless elegance but this was just the start of the installation process. 

Mercury®, the company’s comprehensive, intelligent, easy-to-use dimming and control solution was installed throughout the property.  Delivering complete control of a variety of lighting scenarios; from simple dimming to scene-setting programmes, which can be set, stored and recalled with ease, a bespoke system was built to accommodate the requirements of the project.  The installation included a master control hub, wall-mounted control plates and a remote control facility via iPad/iPhone using Hamilton’s downloadable app.

Each and every control plate was individually designed and built to meet the exact specifications of the function needed within each room. For example; on entering the duplex you are met with a Master 86mm x 86mm control plate incorporating 8 push programmable buttons, LED’s Indication on scenes, 4 scene recall plus 4 Raise/Lower, On/Off Buttons and an IR Receiver. Other rooms, such as the bedroom, used a combination of Master and Slave control plates, controlling the main room lighting and bedside lamps respectively. Every button on each plate had a purpose.

The result

Quality and exclusivity were delivered within a competitive budget – far exceeding client expectations.  For the client, time was saved, hassle eliminated and peace of mind maintained. One supplier offering a comprehensive choice of plates, stunning range of finishes, and state-of-the-art lighting control guaranteed the installation ran smoothly. Plus Hamilton’s bespoke design and production service, Savile Row, ensured that every control plate was unique in both function and form – tailor-made coming as standard!
