The Fairhaven pole house

Thursday, 10 May 2018 6:00:00 am Australia/Melbourne

The Pole House is a distinctive part of the landscape on the Great Ocean Road here in Victoria. One of Australia's smartest people bought it when it finally came up for sale by the original pylon engineer who had built it initially in the 1960s. Like many people who actually do something really useful for society this gentleman is incredibly modest and unassuming but has an unbridled love for good music and video.

We were called in at the early stages to conceptualise and iterate the audio visual systems and automation. Peculiar to this residence is the fact that the Pole House itself is available for lease to holidaymakers and needs to be able to operate both independantly and contiguously with the new primary residence that has been constructed on the hillside behind it.

The home systems are operated via Control4, this automation product that Carlton Audio Visual has been purveying and installing since 2004 is now Australia's leading home integration system for combining all of your lighting, AV control, HVAC and other functions with elegance and simple accesability.

Monday, 5 February 2018 2:25:08 pm Australia/Melbourne

The Sonos CR100 will soon be no more.

Sonos CR100

 

Today it look like an anachronism, but it was a game changer of a product. Although borrowing heavily from the then contemporary iPod, it revolutionised the way we could engage with our still nascent digital music collections. In conjunction with the rest of the Sonos system, at that time either a box that plugged into your stereo or an amplified module you connected speakers to, it helped forge a path for multi-room music. At that point in time multi-room music generally involved a multi-disc CD player and a zone amplifier. Originally confined to your music, Sonos embraced streaming solutions, then wireless speakers and is now a name synonymous with the entire category.
