At Hampstead Reach, a Barratt Homes development of 39 apartments and six houses in north London, Comelit has supplied the door entry system.
Hampstead Reach has been designed to provide a contemporary take on the arts and crafts architecture of neighbouring Hampstead Garden Suburb. The rooms feature parquet flooring and hardwood doors, while contemporary features include LED mood lighting, bespoke kitchens with high-end appliances and a home automation system.
The apartments have been fitted with Comelit’s Simplebus 2-Wire door entry system. There are five bespoke stainless steel entrance panels with access control facility, as well as Icona door entry monitors in each apartment. The monitors feature a 16:9 4.3-inch screen with a swipe feature to reveal hidden function buttons. They have what the product company calls clean and elegant styling and are finished in scratch-resistant polycarbonate and brushed metal edges, reflecting the contemporary interiors. Available in flush-mounted, wall-mounted or desktop versions, the satin finished monitors have a high level of acoustic fidelity, the product company adds.
Two-wire technology enables connectivity over distances, providing the makers say a flexible solution that delivers cost-savings on installation. The two-wire system allows polarity insensitive connection between external and internal components.
The apartments also have a Simplehome home automation system to control the LED mood lighting. This is controlled by a Mini Touch unit which sports a slim, compact profile.
The townhouses have Comelit’s IP-based ViP door entry, with Simplehome home automation to control the lighting and heating. Being IP-based, the ViP system has no distance limitations and is able to provide an unlimited number of users with simultaneous video and audio communications, while enabling remote connection and diagnostics.
Jeremy King, National Specification Manager at Comelit, said: “These luxuriously designed homes combine architecture that complements their historic surroundings with cutting-edge 21st-century technology, as seen in the state-of-the art door entry and home automation systems. Comelit is very proud to have been part of this exclusive development.”
Hampstead Reach is set at the end of a cul-de-sac – formerly the site of the Chandos tennis club – overlooking landscaped gardens with a water feature.
