Bucharest by night
Bucharest, a trendy neighbourhood, luxurious loft, gentle summer eveningâ€¦ From the roof terrace you are enjoying the 360Â° view. Mag-ni-fi-cent! It was the magical aura of this spot that led the owner to choose Vantage. So that it could come into its own. Whatever the night has in store, no one has to worry about the lighting or Jacuzzi or run downstairs for a bit of music. Vantage takes care of it all.
Vantage doesnâ€™t stop surprising
Although we love being outside on the terrace, there is a lot to be admired inside as well.
Virgil Marinescu, Vantage dealer in Romania, is justifiably proud of this project. â€œOne of the challenges was to transform the living room into a perfect home cinema. Precisely something for Vantage: a screen that can be fully hidden in the ceiling, led colours that changeâ€¦..â€
He also explains how all this take place according to the time of day or natural light levels. Consequently the â€˜filmâ€™ button starts off an entire scene. Evening or night time? The blinds open up and let the residents enjoy the lights of the city. In the daytime? The curtains shut, which ensures a typical cinema-like atmosphere.
The crowing touch to all this is the splendid skylight, a 1 1/2 square metre opening in the ceiling. When it is dark outside, it opens; if it is still daytime, it shuts.
A single press on a button
Inquisitive as we are, we like to have a look in the bathrooms. You press on the â€œonâ€ button and the light intensity is adapted to the natural daylight, you hear soft music, etc. Everything is set according to the ownerâ€™s wishes, including the button for â€œnight timeâ€.
Different settings are also programmed for the heating. For instance, at night or when everyone is out of house, the overall temperature drops by 3 degrees. Just press the correct button.
While most buttons activate pre-programmed scenes, with the 12,10â€ touchscreen you can manually set every system detail.
Music anyone? In an area of the loft, residents can listen to their favourite music. Choose from 6 different sources, including the iPod music library.
-lighting (+ leds that change colour)
-home cinema system
-screen and projector
-multi-room audio (+ iPod)
-curtains and Venetian blinds
Vantage control components
-12, 1â€ portable touchscreen
