Lakefront Penthouse

Project: High-Rise Residence
Date: 2010
Location: Downtown – Chicago, IL

The Situation
The client is an avid art collector who, along with the designer, wanted to hide all signs of technology so as not to detract from the home’s art collection. Protecting the expensive artwork from the sun was a primary objective.

Our Approach
We installed more than 100 automated shades and programmed them to open/close according to the time of the day and the sun’s position. The TV was built into a stone fireplace, and an innovative Auton motorized lift with an art panel was used to conceal/reveal the screen. The 110” screen and projector neatly disappear until the family is ready to use the TV.
