It starts with a man with a plan, a banged up Media Room and a classy eye for the finer things in life.

The Story

On March 2018 the call came through to us, BNC Technology. he required a plush refurb on his Media Room in northern Johannesburg, which had been severely struck by storm damage.

He knew what he wanted. We knew what we could do to create his vision. But none of us could have imagined at the time how this banged up space would ultimately transform into an exclusive corner of lavish entertainment luxury.

Together we began a journey that raised the game

And this, is where the story begins.

We moved in. Quick and fast.

We moved in. Quick and fast. We assessed the wrongs and the rights of the space, with as much dexterity and personal attention as possible. Our client had some good ideas. We had some good ideas. Together we began a journey that raised the game, the bar, the sound and the roof on the definitive delivery of smart home design ingenuity.

The outdated bits left on a delivery truck. The future-forward bits rolled in with a BNC Technology van. A bespoke, fully immersive, automated home cinema experience was about to get real for our most valued customer.

And this, is where the story begins.
