Design Brief

Design and install air conditioning and ventilation to serve the whole property, working with feature ceilings, sloped ceilings, and minimalist bathroom designs.


The new-build detached property developed in the local arts and crafts look hides an extensive family home with contemporary styling and modern amenities throughout. In order to maintain this look, our comfort cooling design utilises hidden air conditioning units concealed either in adjacent rooms or within a number of bespoke cinema joinery units. Concealed ductwork carefully designed to integrate into the tray and raft ceilings throughout supplies air through concealed linear bar grilles within these architectural features.

A centralised MVHR located in the Basement plant room provides supply and extract ventilation to the lower floors. In the Basement gym and entertainment spaces constant background supply and extract ventilation is provided via grilles integrated into the ceiling coffer details. The Gym sauna has dedicated extract ventilation integrated with the home lighting control to ensure it only operates after use.

Decentralised extraction throughout the Ground and upper floors uses minimalist slot diffusers sensitively positioned in the bathroom and utility spaces to extract stale air and them fresh. Sensitive to the neighbourhood, all ventilation outlets on the externals of the property are either minimal louvres in the wall or flush tile vents in the roof, sized to provide silent airflow externally.
