The Ultimate Modern Farmhouse
ONE NEW-BUILD HOME IN VANCOUVER needed
to go above and beyond the popular modern farmhouse look with hidden and high-quality technology. Designed to accommodate a busy family and
their entertaining needs, this home needed to be
fully automated while blending in with the carefully crafted interior design.

PLANNING OUT A CONNECTED SPACE

This 4,600-sq.-ft. home has five bedrooms on the
upper floor and multiple gathering spaces on the
main floor, including an outdoor barbecue area, a
TV room with a bar and a large and open kitchen
and dining room space.
"We knew wiring the home automation would
be challenging since the home was quite large,"
said Karim Goldan of Vancouver-based Goldcon
Construction, explaining that the team had to
strategically lay out where each keypad would go
and then ensure the wiring connected back to the
Control4 system in the mechanical room on the
main floor.

ABOVE The lighting system

makes it possible for the
homeowners to set programs
for lighting and audio, such as
a schedule to turn the exterior
lights off when the sun rises.
It was not a priority for the
homeowners to have connected appliances in the
kitchen, but instead they
felt it was more valuable to
them to include connected
lighting and audio for optimal
entertaining ease.

A family home discreetly
boasts connected lighting,
audio & total automation

The Goldcon team had the advantage of being involved in this project from
the very beginning with the integrator,Vancouver-based SuperTech Systems.
From their initial drawing and material boards, the design team collaborated
and relayed their ideas to the project manager and the integrator so everyone
was on the same page from the start.
Even with the pre-concept meetings and planning, some onsite design
was required of the entire team.This was particularly necessary when it came
to the lighting, especially in the kitchen with its multiple light sources. The
design of the wiring was done so carefully because the wattage from the fixtures had to be evenly distributed to each switch to avoid overloading. Using
LED lighting greatly helped with this distribution of energy, as LEDs use
significantly less wattage than incandescent bulbs. Being able to dim these
lights and have full control over them - made possible through the Control4
system - adds both eco-friendliness and ease to the home.
"The ability to dim a light is a huge advantage and will have major cost savings,
and you are not always using the lighting at its maximum output,"said Goldan.
HIDDEN TECHNOLOGY

By ERINN LOUCKS

The lighting - which can be automated and set into scenes - might be the
most visible technology in this home, but there are other less-apparent smart
features that make just as much difference. Installed throughout the â
main living areas, kitchen and in the master, the home's speakers are
