Downtown Indiana Residence

Seeking a simplified lifestyle, an Indianapolis couple downsized from a large suburban home to a downtown condo. Their relocation to Indianapolis’ city center was no downgrade, however – their new luxury unit offered exceptional features and finishes, enticing amenities and stunning views. Unfortunately, those expansive views were accompanied by intense morning and afternoon sun and harsh glare, and a clear lack of privacy from other high-rise residences.

The couple also wanted to incorporate an automated home entertainment system, including multi-room audio and high-definition video, without detracting from their home’s sleek interior design and furnishings. In fact, they sought a design for lighting and lighting control that would highlight their home’s architectural features as well as their extensive art collection.

Like every Doherty Design Group solution, three fundamental objectives applied to the lighting control and home entertainment system: it must be simple and enjoyable to operate, must be reliable without exception and must fit perfectly with the home’s design and the lifestyle of its occupants. With these objectives in mind, Doherty Design chose Lutron seeTouch® wall controls to form the basis for the home automation system.

A single integrated wall control panel is a subtle addition to the home’s interior finishes, and lets the owners easily and intuitively control their lighting, window treatments and home entertainment system. At the touch of a button, they can raise and lower shades, change light levels and manage music from their iPod®, satellite radio and CD player. Accessory devices, which can otherwise contribute to wall clutter, were also chosen to specifically complement the residence’s clean look.

As a result, the homeowners have quickly adapted to urban living and enjoy every opportunity to relax in their new home. "It has been a real pleasure working with the professionals at Doherty Design. From the outset, their focus was on understanding our habits and preferences, and translating that complexity into an easy-to-use, convenient and aesthetically pleasing solution that truly enhances the lifestyle and mood we were seeking. It literally took us only a few minutes to master the controls! We were seeking that elusive high-tech, yet high-touch solution. We found it in Doherty Design."
