VISBEEN ARCHITECTS ENLISTS BEKINS & CLASSIC STEREO

Visbeen Architects Alley Party

 

Visbeen Architects hosted guests at their Design Home Thursday night.  The event raised money for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.

The Design Home acts as Wayne and Angela Visbeen’s living space, work space, but also their showroom. They designed the space to wow potential customers.

With that in mind, they hired Bekins and Classic Stereo to furnish appliances and electronics in the home.

ELECTRONICS AND APPLIANCES FOR VISBEEN ARCHITECTS

The electronics in the home feature hidden installation and built-in speakers. Since we installed them during the construction phase, the speakers are flush to the ceiling.

Each room can listen to its own music or the whole home can play the same audio.

The Design Home also features Seura Vanishing Entertainment flat screen televisions. Turn the TV off and it transforms into a mirror.

The kitchen features appliances from Bekins, including a pair of built-in Gaggenau refrigerators. The refrigerators feature the same finish as the cabinetry in the rest of the kitchen, which makes them discreet and blend in with the rest of the room.

ALLEY PARTY FOR A CAUSE

Attendees bought tickets to the event and items during an auction. Visbeen Architects and the Grand Rapids Business Journal donate those proceeds to the Helen DeVos Children Hospital. To learn more about the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Foundation and how to donate, click here.

BACKYARD RESORT: OUTDOOR ELECTRONICS & APPLIANCES

Outdoor Electronics Holland Parade Home

You would think it was a tropical island vacation. Yet, a local couple brought that experience to their home in Holland. See how outdoor appliances and outdoor electronics provide a backyard resort at 14728 Powderhorn Trail.

The 2017 Spring Lakeshore Parade of Homes features this and other landscape designs for a limited time.

Landscape Design Services turned the backyard ideas into a reality. It features a bar with a grill, refrigerator and other appliances furnished by Bekins. An outdoor television and in-lawn speakers from Classic Stereo gives guests little reason to ever go inside. They made it grand enough to host big groups but cozy enough for a couple to enjoy.

MEANT FOR OUTDOOR ELECTRONICS

It is important to note that manufacturers do not build all televisions and speakers to withstand the weather outside. This backyard features Sonance landscape speakers and a Seura outdoor television. A reflective coating protects the TV screen and your view from the sun. It also protects against:

  • rain
  • snow
  • dust
  • insects
  • fog
  • humidity
  • extreme temperatures (-30 degrees Farenheit to 122 degrees Farenheit)
  • and more factors mother nature can throw its way

The homeowner controls all of it with Control 4 home automation. The system lets you control your entire home with a touch of a button or a simple voice command.
