Skye by Crown Group Sydney, NSW

Development is becoming more about communities living high above the skyline. Buyers are becoming increasingly aware of the shift from ground level dwellings to this new age of 'sky-high’ and their expectation for top-quality living is now the standard.

The most sought-after elements when searching for that perfect home is combining something “special” with technology, sophistication and luxury. Designed by Koichi Takada Architects, Skye by Crown Group ticks all of the boxes and is the ultimate luxurious development.

Located in North Sydney, looking out over Sydney’s stunning east and west skyline, Skye by Crown Group is a 20 floor, 242 apartment building with ground floor retail outlets, a top-floor gym and an infinity edged rooftop pool with views to be envied.

All of this style and aesthetic appeal built into the premise meant that the most intelligent home automation needed to be factored in to ensure the comfort, safety and wellbeing of all residents and their guests.

The level of achievement was confirmed when Skye by Crown Group took home the 2017 top accolade at the Master Builders Association NSW excellence in construction awards, being named the winner of the “Residential and Mixed-use Development Buildings. Open Price Category”.

It is now considered the norm for new buildings to be “Connected”. The trend of connected Smart Living will continue to grow, opening a new era in the digital and electrical building fields. As a contractor, it is vital to keep your finger on the pulse in this exciting and ever-evolving landscape.

This development project is part of Crown Group Holdings, an Australian property management enterprise that specialises in property investment and serviced apartments.

Legrand partnered with POWCOM Pty Ltd, to create a solution that met these needs and ensured the most relevant automation was installed into this residential project.

As a global leader in electrical and digital building infrastructures, Legrand provided its top selection of customised automation systems, which emulated Sky by Crown Group’s vision of supreme contemporary living. The products selected for this project were BTicino’s intercom solutions:

  • Classe300X13 intercom system,
  • Automation, Temperature control, and
  • The 10” touchscreen.

The systems are designed for room temperature maintenance, door entry control (either locally or via smartphone), and also to oversee the centralised supervision of the whole apartment block.

Legrand’s Arteor coverplates added that sophisticated touch perfectly, adding a new level of luxury, with their genuine materials and impeccable aesthetics.

The Viva by Crown Group Sydney, NSW

For all residential building development projects, the safety and comfort of occupants are of utmost importance during the planning process. In today’s connected world, home automation is playing a more pivotal role than ever to enhance people’s everyday living experience. 

Viva by Crown is a prime example of a development project that is making headway in innovative smart living. Viva coined their name from the word, ‘viva’, which is Latin for live! The name was inspired by one of their fundamental values: providing an exceptional lifestyle experience for people in today’s modern world.

Staying true to their name, Viva has made a truly exquisite urban sanctuary for contemporary living in the centre of Sydney.

Legrand partnered with electrical contractor, G&S Maroun, to develop an ‘all-in-one’ automation solution, supporting Viva by Crown’s vision of streamlined contemporary living.

BTicino’s 2-Wire Intercom and Automation systems were selected for the centralised supervision of the entire apartment block. These systems can also manage each apartment in detail, such as room temperature and door entry control.

Careful thought has gone into the ‘user experience’ when designing BTicino’s 2-Wire and Automation systems, giving the user freedom to manage their room locally or via smart phone.

To give the user ultimate control, BTicino’s 10” Touchscreen video handset was also selected. This allows residents to manage their door entry, monitor their energy usage and all other home automation functions.

Legrand’s Arteor coverplates were used to accessorise the systems, giving each room an impeccable finish with the coverplates’ stunning finishes.

This residential development project is part of Crown Group Holdings, an Australian property management enterprise that specialises in property investment and serviced apartments.

Legrand is delighted to have provided one of Australia’s most prestigious industry bodies with an electrical solution, which combines user simplicity with technological sophistication.

Arc by Crown Group Sydney, NSW

In today’s fast paced world, staying constantly connected is the new norm. To facilitate this fast-paced, constantly ‘switched on’ culture, an increasing amount of devices are becoming automated. Home automation, for example, is transforming the way people live, work and communicate, opening up exciting new opportunities for industries and contractors.

 

For larger residential and commercial projects, such as hotels, apartments and office buildings, more and more contractors are turning to automated solutions.

 

A prime example is the Arc by Crown Group development project in Sydney’s CBD. With an eye for architectural sophistication, leading property management enterprise, Crown Group, is dedicated to enhancing the growth of cities through engineering excellence, supreme design and creative flare. 

 

Sharing this same vision, Sydney-based electrical contractor, DDP Electrical Services, partnered with Legrand to develop a supreme-quality automation solution for this major residential project.

 

During the design of Arc by Crown Group’s penthouse, Legrand was DDP’s first choice for the room’s automated solution. BTicino’s 2-Wire Intercom and Automation systems were selected for their superior performance, user-friendly technology and ease of installation. This allowed for room temperature maintenance, door entry control (either locally or via smartphone), and the centralised supervision of the whole apartment block.

 

For extra control and safety, BTicino’s 10” Touchscreen video handset was selected, so residents can manage video door entry systems, energy usage and all other home automation functions.

 

The system was dressed in Legrand’s stunning Arteor coverplates, which are renowned for their exquisitely original finishes, manufactured from materials made of genuine timbers, leathers and shimmering metals.

 

Legrand is a global leader in providing simple solutions that are specifically tailored to suit a wide range of residential and commercial projects.
