Fort Myers Residence
Luxurious Waterfront Home with Technology that Shines

introduction

With new technology, entertainment awaits inside or outside this unique home to showcase its unmatched artistic features throughout.

This newly built home is a unique, ultra-modern waterfront masterpiece in Fort Myers, Florida. Inspired by contemporary architecture, the luminous open living areas feature coveted design elements with the finest materials and soaring ceilings. The home boasts a spacious great room, a foyer, a chef’s kitchen, 38 sun tunnels, and a glass wine room.

the challenge

The homeowner, Sylvie Acovski, was seeking special features for her “forever home” by simplifying the controls on the wall for HVAC and AV, along with using lighting to accentuate her artwork. The homeowner’s late husband has family ties to The Lalique Glass Art company in France, a brand recognized as the ultimate symbol of French luxury. It was important to Acovski that customized lighting controls would spotlight the crystals and custom-made paintings.

 
"I absolutely love my Crestron system. All the scenes are preprogrammed to make my everyday life so much easier."
Sylvie Acovski
Homeowner

the solution

Her trips around the world inspired Acovski to incorporate beautiful art pieces throughout her home, so it was essential that the design and technology elements work together to create the ideal lighting décor and atmosphere. With the help of Phil Roberts, owner of Phil’s Phancy Programming, the team implemented Crestron solutions to simplify control. This provides Acovski with 200 zones of tunable lights that can highlight art displays, along with other beautiful assets of the home, providing an experience that is further complemented by automated shading and HVAC controls.

the technology

Acovski entertains often and the Crestron platform gives her complete control over the lighting, such as color temperature and intensity, to create a perfect ambiance. Acovski can choose any color to create a uniform atmosphere with the press of a button from the Crestron platform. The custom paintings within the home are encased in modern, glassy, white frames to enhance these pieces, and lighting fixtures were installed within the case to provide backlight to the walls to achieve the desired aesthetic.

Throughout the residence, Horizon® keypads checked the boxes for both design and function, especially with the ability to tune the backlight of each button with “at-a-glance" feedback. The homeowner had custom, ultra-modern couches shipped from France, and light strips were added around the pieces for additional customization and flair. With Crestron touch screens integrated into the smart home system, control is always close without intruding on the design to ensure a consistent look and feel. For added controls, Acovski also has the ability to adjust the shading. Crestron motorized shades were one of the most essential features in the system, as they provide her with even more control, including the option to take advantage of natural light in the rooms with 60-foot glass walls on both sides. The shades also help preserve the designer furniture and the priceless pieces in the home.

 
"Crestron has proven to work the best, be the easiest to use, and provide support with the least number of issues. It was a no-brainer to add Crestron solutions into this beautiful home."
Phil Roberts
Owner,
Phancy Programming

Having a dependable content distribution system gives Acovski more freedom to play her favorite movies or playlists when entertaining her guests. Crestron’s DigitalMedia™ content distribution platform feeds each television through the switcher, allowing for a uniform display across each screen. Additionally, DigitalMedia technology provides audio distribution across the entire property, allowing audio and video sources to be easily changed while entertaining without disrupting her guests’ experience.

The property around the home is just as extravagant as the interior, with an expansive outdoor living area that includes a zero-edge pool oasis and spa, a mega-entertainment deck with a party room, and an indoor-outdoor barbecue area with a fireplace to create the perfect entertainment setup. The palm trees and wraparound dock are illuminated by outdoor light fixtures that highlight the pathway, making it easier for Acovski to dock her boat at night. The linear zero-edge drip around the entire pool can also cast light to fit the theme of any event she hosts. Acovski also has a preferred preset party scene with lighting and fire features, allowing for the perfect entertaining atmosphere.

 
"Entertaining is an easy way of life here. The only problem is that our guests enjoy it so much that they are never ready to leave."
Sylvie Acovski
Homeowner

the results

With a 14,000-square-foot home, Acovski believes that automation is a necessity. With multiple scenes preprogrammed by Roberts and his team, there is an ease of control for everyday life and entertainment throughout the massive property.
