Designing to Disguise; The Art of Hiding Technology
Home electronics should integrate seamlessly into a home’s design and décor. This course reviews the three-pronged approach to hiding technology—advance planning, design philosophy, and product selection—which are available for minimizing the visual impact of electronics without compromising performance. Specific challenges and recommendations related to hiding video displays, projectors, speakers, controls, cameras, and equipment racks—among others—will be addressed. This course speaks to innovative and creative ways to lessen the visual impact of electronics by making them low-profile, hidden or camouflaged, or even invisible!

AIA Luncheon (ticket required through AIA Santa Fe) @ 11:45 AM
Using Technology Systems to Help homeowners Live a Greener Life
A “green home” extends beyond recycling and energy efficiency. Clients today want to live a greener lifestyle. Participants in this course will discuss components of “living green”, and how using technology can actually help their clients live a greener life. Additionally, attendees will discuss the ways control systems can improve durability, and enhance health and comfort of a home and its occupants through HVAC, lighting and lighting control, automated shading, smart appliances, and water usage. Participants will also discuss how a cooperative mentality among trades in the design and build process can help clients achieve their “green goals”.

In addition, our booth demonstrated Q-Motion motorized shades, a Sonos wireless music system, dedicated home WiFi network, and a Pyng lighting system.
