recluseWith most of our working week couped up in an office environment, it makes sense that we seek pleasure in the relaxing confines of our home. And of course we all want that place of `refuge’ to enrich our lives and be the ultimate go-to for down time with everything we need to help us unwind.

Recluse AV seeks to accomplish all of those things with their complete home entertainment system, offering quality, robust and energy conscious solutions that simplify the many complex devices in our lives. Their professional and project management driven approach combines with a skilled team of passionate people who are focused on making a real difference to your living experience, safety and enjoyment.

To give you an idea of the spaces they can create, it is necessary to share this case study from a Victorian home where Recluse AV assisted their clients to embrace technology while keeping it simple. In their golden years, this client has moved with the times and enjoy a very extensive but incredibly simple-to-use smart home. These homeowners in Victoria were not big technology users, so in their new home, priorities one, two and three were simplicity, simplicity and simplicity.

This said, they have built a very spacious house and have many complex systems to control. So like the modern car, the simpler one wants it to be for the user, the more complexity that is required behind the scenes.recluse_3

The inspiration was to provide the many layers of functionality required by the clients and a residence of this substance, in a way that was simple and unintimidating. They had to do this in a very robust way so that the system was very stable and reliable, and also easy to maintain or change when that’s required.

This striking modern residence, built on a raw, steep block, comprises a very spacious living/dining/kitchen area, a particularly well-equipped alfresco area, and a downstairs open theatre and rumpus room complemented by a wine cellar/bar. The rear of the bar is complete with a full-height below-water viewing window into the pool!

Both upstairs and downstairs open out onto spacious balcony/entertaining areas, with the lower area flowing down into the gardens, water features and putting green. Five bedrooms, five bathrooms/ ensuites and another small lounge area are positioned upstairs.
