Great Outdoor Space Design + Impeccable Audio + Smart Lighting = Your Happy Place
Over the years Stone Glidden has worked to make hundreds of Outdoor Spaces come alive. Cool serenity washes over client’s faces when they see how the pieces come together to create a timeless experience. A place you can get lost in, right outside your door.
The spaces that really seem to work are those that start with thoughtful landscape design. Great craftsmanship infused with surrounding nature (see our blog: The Donald Pell Experience).
Any outdoor space can be brought alive with some thought and expertise. Think about the things that you would enjoy doing in your outdoor space: relaxing, entertaining, dining, sleeping, thinking, reading, exercising, meditating, unwinding after work. Two things can accelerate all of those experiences, sight and sound. Music can facilitate every single one of those activities.
Imagine music with absolute clarity that surrounds you. You can’t see or hear where it’s coming from, it just sounds complete at any volume level. It becomes the space. Your neighbors can’t hear it, no worry, only you can. This is the experience we achieve with Sonance Landscape Systems. The sound is absolutely remarkable. The satellite speakers and the in-ground subwoofer are integrated into the landscape. You can’t see them.
We install the system so that it takes into account the individual acoustics of your space. The entire system is laid out in such a way that the circumference of sound is resident upon your refuge, not your neighbor’s yard.
By far one of the most underutilized experience heighteners for outdoor spaces is light. Usually we see some light strings or some up-lighting. What if you could create an infinite amount of lighting scenes outdoors? What if you could group lights and regroup them as your needs serve? We use Lutron Smart Lighting. Using your phone or tablet you can choose or create as many lighting scenes as you wish. Scenes like: Pool, Outdoor Kitchen, Party, Dinner, Late Night, Relax, the list goes on and on.
Smart lighting can also adjust the brightness of your lighting according to an astronomical clock. That is to say, if you so choose, your lights will brighten as the sun goes down to a level that you select. Conversely, they can dim as the sun comes up until they are completely off.
There is one more very good added benefit. Security! Your outdoor space can be continually lit in random patterns making the space look occupied whether you are home or in Rome.
Not only are the choices we have amazing but also how we can control our space. Both music and light can be controlled with your phone or tablet. So it does not matter where you are. You can control your lighting scenes from around the world. Additionally, you have an infinite choice of digital music that also is controlled by your phone or tablet, coupled with your lighting creating any mood you wish. Pandora, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music, you name it, easily integrated and controlled.
Your space means your space.
