Thorley Court – Award Winning Home


Mark Winter Construction celebrated winning the State Award for Individual Home ($751,000-$1.25million) category at the Master Builders State Housing and Construction Awards for their stunning Thorley Court home.

The Thorley home with its high-end custom design turns dreams into reality capturing all the best features for modern family living.

Mark Winter Construction worked closely with Visual Focus project manager Farrukh Rasif to combine the clean lines of the home with excellent functionality from the latest technology.

During the construction phase, Visual Focus trade qualified cabling and installation team pre-wired the home, ensuring the cabling would be future proofed to install the latest technology as it emerges.  Pre-wiring is most cost effective when the right type of cabling is run to the right rooms and locations.  Installing cables behind walls and in ceilings for  audio-visual equipment prior to sheeting walls and adding finishing touches makes it easy to connect technology that will be in high use by the family.

The Thorley Street home audio-visual design for the main entertainment room combines an in-ceiling motorised screen with the high quality visual images from the Epson home theatre range of projectors.  With comfortable lounge seating positioned in the sweet spot for sound, the family can enjoy the ultimate in listening from their Bowers and Wilkins high quality directional front speakers and the supplemental rear surround speakers.

Throughout the living areas and the outdoor entertainment area are discreetly installed Bowers and Wilkins in-ceiling speakers.  The Sonos wireless system distributes streaming audio throughout the home with the family able to program one playlist for all rooms or segment different songs for different rooms to suit various family members’ taste in music.

All the audio-visual equipment of the home can be controlled with the touch of a button.  Crestron automation is programmed for easy operation and reduces equipment remote controls to just one button touch.  With controls either on elegantly installed wall panels or accessed through remote device apps, that one button is always nearby.
