This weekend was a momentous one for Intuitive Homes as we saw one of our projects featured on the front page of The FT.  London and New York-based technology journalist, Jonathan Margolis, visited the leafy suburbs of Bowdon, near Manchester, to see the award-winning Man Cave project for himself.  I think we can safely say he was blown away; stating that the client had out California’d California. 

The full article was featured in How To Spend It, The FT's high-end magazine for affluent and discerning global audience and on their website.  The website also features a 4 minute video clip of Jonathan testing out the rotating turntable for the client's Maclaren car and chatting to the man himself.  Both Stephen Nevison  of Intuitive Homes and Oliver Hall of our partner company Ultamation were interviewed.

Double success at the 2016 CEDIA awards

On Friday evening, Stephen from Intuitive Homes and Oliver from Ultamation went to the CEDIA Awards held at Guildhall in London.

The CEDIA Awards are seen as the Oscars of the home technology industry and celebrates technical excellence in design, installation and integration across the EMEA.  These awards honour innovation, creativity, and technical skill, and help illustrate the many ways technology enhances the home.

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we won not one but two awards this year!

One, for the now infamous, Man-Cave, and the other for our Showroom which has been done in partnership with Janey Butler Interiors and Llama Property.

We'd like to thank all our partners involved, and once we've come back down to earth we'll let you know more about both projects.

Intuitive Homes and Ultamation win at the Crestron Awards 2016

We are proud to announce that Ultamation and Intuitive Homes have won another prestigious award [drum roll please] … the Crestron Integration Awards 2016 for Most Innovative Solution. 

The Crestron Integration Awards celebrate the achievements of the integrators, designers and partners that have embraced Crestron solutions in both residential and commercial projects across EMEA.  They honour the year’s most spectacular and innovative system designs in several distinct categories, including Best Integrated Home, Best Corporate Installation and Most Innovative Solution, amongst others.

Crestron said of our win “Being a winner out of 112 entries does say something about the quality and scope of the project, so well done!”  


We were thrilled to recently discover that we have won an ITSA Award for one of our recent projects.  The project, which is intriguingly called The Man Cave, is a joint project with Ultamation and won the most Innovative Installation category. 

This project proved to be one of those that doesn't come along too often, and truly embodies the ‘custom’ aspect of custom installation.
An existing client wanted to take their basement car park and change it into a one of a kind man cave with the center-piece being a rotating turntable to park and display one of his supercars. The brief was simple – create a space that Tony Stark would be proud of!

Okay, maybe not that simple… and there is definitely nothing simplistic about what Ultamation and Intuitive Homes devised to meet that brief, the finished product being more Batcave than man cave – a subterranean lair of the utmost finery and some of the coolest controls and presets any man could ever hope for, be he mere man or, indeed as the brief stated, Iron-man.

Featuring a custom Crestron interface, designed to reflect Tony Stark’s tech, the owner can now rotate his car at will, whilst detection setting allow the music to strike up and the car to revolve automatically whenever someone steps into the room – and if you don’t think that’s cool, then you should check your pulse.
