This most innovative and futuristic of builds was first owned by acclaimed musician and songwriter Vince Clarke, of Erasure and Depeche Mode fame.
Recently featuring on TV's Grand Designs, the extraordinary structure is fossil-shaped, inspired by ammonite, and built to capture the smallest and more eye-catching of details, such as the slightly-curved doors that blend into the overall curvature of the building.
During the Grand Designs feature Kevin makes special reference to Teksclusive's custom round design of light switch plate. (see below)
Ammonite House made use of previously unused technologies such as Privalite windows, which are windows that turn opaque at the touch of a button. Other features included an indoor pool, amphitheatre, and striking glass spiral staircase.
In technology terms, twenty-four years is a lifetime. Our challenge was to update the house’s lighting control. Due to the complex nature of the original installation, this was a gargantuan task.
We rose to the challenge, and completed 160 lighting circuits with new dimming controls, and 35 custom-made round light switch panels. To bring Ammonite House up-to-date with modern innovation, we also created an app so owners could manage everything on the move.
Having successfully completed a comprehensive upgrade to the entertainment systems on his 78 meter superyacht, our client again appointed Teksclusive to install the smart home technology into his prestigious apartment located in one of the most exclusive blocks in the heart of London’s Mayfair.
