The clients' initial requirement was to supply air conditioning to all key areas, wine cellar cooling and swimming pool dehumidification.

Air Conditioning

Requirements was that the indoor air handler units were discreetly positioned to minimise the visual effect of the mechanical components in the house, outdoor units needed to be discreetly positioned so not to be obtrusive therefore based the design on following using ducted indoor units. They were positioned within the ceiling voids with linear supply grills and shadowline return grilles and access panels.

The outdoor units were positioned 50 metres from the main house with pipework installed within a trench and entering the building within a false drainage downpipe to blend in with the exterior therefore there are no visible signs of exterior or interior pipework. The outdoor units were additionally coated with Blygold which is an anti corrosive protection as the house is on a sea water frontage.

The air con is controlled by either local remote control or by BMS (Building management system) so the system can be operated from anywhere in the world. Additionally AV equipment in the loft has its own indoor unit to provide cooling to the AV room to stop AV equipment overheating. All bedrooms, entrance hall, dining room, kitchen, lounge and study were fitted with their own indoor units so autonomous control was possible.

Wine Cellar

Customer requirement was to store all types of wine for long periods including bottles in wood cases therefore design a system that would achieve 13 degrees at all times and create a steady humidification level, achieved by a separate system with its own control panel within the room.

Basement Pool

Client wanted to keep pool hall air dry and to a selected temperature, achieved by fitting two dehumidifiers/heaters that circulate the air in the pool room to the correct temperature and dehumidification to keep the pool dry and warm. The units were discretely positioned behind purpose-built bulkheads, the access panels and supply grilles were bespoke made to blend in with the pool room décor.
