Seamless Retrofit Installation in Tribeca
Project Name: Tribeca Penthouse
Project Location: New York, NY
Square Footage: 5,924 sq. Ft.
Dealer: Kraus Hi-Tech Home Automation
This stunning luxury penthouse in Lower Manhattan’s famed Tribeca neighborhood began as a gutted space in need of a comprehensive floor-to-ceiling remodel. The area required a complete retrofit solution that blended the contemporary styling of architect Leopoldo Rosati with the type of one-touch control experience favored by New York City’s elite homebuyers. Vantage’s potent InFusion system and family of elegant, easy-to-install user interfaces made it the clear choice for this project.
The Vantage InFusion system provides the automation backbone for the entire structure, seamlessly integrating all the home’s functions into one unified system. Over 80 elegant EasyTouch II keypads in TrimLine II trims and faceplates give the homeowner elegant one-touch control over lighting, music, security, video, and home environment. These sophisticated user interfaces are LED backlit and laser engraved to allow for an infinite number of customization options.

A full range of outlets and GFCIs – also wrapped in elegant TrimLine II faceplates and trims – perfectly complement the Vantage keypads. This results in a truly unified aesthetic that accents the home’s décor both above and below the chair rail Lighting in each room (and on the home’s two beautiful stone decks) responds instantly to commands entered from an Easy Touch II keypad or any one of the intuitive touchscreens. With a Vantage control system, users can also raise or lower shades, trigger lighting, view cameras, even activate security from anywhere in the home.
Entertainment options are first rate. The Vantage 1080HD Video Switcher delivers uncompressed high definition video to each of the home’s five Sharp AQUOS Quattron displays, eliminating the need for cable boxes and Blu-Ray players at every location. Users can start a movie in the living room and finish it in the downstairs master bedroom without ever touching the disc. A multi-room audio system – courtesy of two 450 Amplifiers and a 2-terabyte Digital Music Manager — create a true whole-home music option that can be operated via touchscreen or any smartphone device. With the installation of a Vantage solution, this upscale NYC penthouse now truly embodies the vision of the architect and stands as a definitive example of how style and control work hand in hand to create the ultimate user experience. Vantage’s sophisticated and stylish user interfaces elevate the home’s inspired design beyond mere aesthetics, creating the one-of-a-kind marriage of style and convenience that is only possible with a Vantage InFusion system.
