With space at such a premium in cities around the world, intelligent design and integration is key to creating flexible and enjoyable living spaces.

The entire home can be operated through Crestron in-wall touch panels, wireless touchscreens, and your iPad.

Gone are the days of endlessly flipping light switches on and off. With the intelligent lighting control system in this property, the homeowner can set the scene for the entire house exactly how it's wanted with a single press of a button.

South End isn't just sumptuous, it's also safe.

Both the master bedroom and underground cinema will protect the homeowner and his family from unwanted guests. Dedicated comms and an uninterruptible power supply means the family is always in touch with the outside world.
