Home and Extension Case Study

Case Study

Fantastic extension project, from the ground up this stunning extension was planned with the family space in mind. The kitchen space was extended to allow entertaining, cooking and relaxing. Kid friendly, a safe and open plan space where the parents can keep an eye on the little ones.

A 7.1 surround sound system with an underfloor subwoofer, video distribution to the rest of the property, Multi zone audio including their fantastic outdoor space all brought together by Control4.

Project Brief 

Extending and already spectacular family home located on the west coast of Scotland, these homeowners contacted Lairds of Troon to integrate and distribute audio and video services throughout the home.  Functionality, control and the requirement to add to the system at a later date was high on the homeowners priorities.

Customer Wish list

Quality system easily controlled = The homeowner already benefited from having a Sonos system installed and Control 4, the ability to add to these systems was paramount using compatible products that would increase the functionality by adding more audio zones and distributed video.

Hidden technology – Having a young family the owners primary concern was the access to devices and systems stored on the network and safety element for the children.  Working with the homeowner and designer we were able to accommodate all of the devices and systems stored on the network in a specially designed AV CAB discreetly housed within one of the kitchen cupboards safely out of reach of little hands.


The challenges

Equipment Location –The homeowners brief was to locate the AV CAB in a central location within the home.  There was minimal space available to accommodate the AV CAB, to overcome this issue Lairds of Troon sourced a suitable AV CAB that was of a compact design but could still accommodate the various devices and cabling and could be stored safely within a kitchen cupboard.

Underfloor SUB – With any project technical issued may occur, having a rather large sub located under the floor was a particular challenge, consideration had to be given to future maintenance or upgrade should this be required without damaging the specialized flooring that was being overlaid.  Lairds of Troon worked seamlessly with the builders and the homeowner to allow for an access point without compromising any aspect of the flooring.
