Not having much in the way of borders or limitations can be a challenge. When a discerning client came to the design center of TRIPhase Technologies
Graphic stone and choice pieces of art are just two highlights of this Back Bay home
Scott Dixon is a quadruple IndyCar Champion, leading non-U.S. driver in American Championship Cars, and one of the 33 greatest drivers in Indianapolis 500 history. He’s also a husband and father who, when away from home, wants to connect with his family however possible. That’s why, when building his new 7,000-square foot home in Indianapolis, he called upon Robert Haecker, Tom Wilburn and Don Wolfe at Triphase Technologies to integrate fast and responsive technology that helps Dixon feel present, even while on the road.
When Indianapolis residents Mike and Liz Simmons couldn’t find a local automobile storage facility to warehouse their collection of classic, exotic and luxury cars, they took it upon themselves to build the city’s only premier automobile storage and social club, SILO Auto Club & Conservancy. With the goal of creating a convenient, modern downtown space where local auto enthusiasts can gather, host events, and securely store valuable vehicles, Simmons hired electronics integrator TRIPhase Technologies to oversee the interior design and outfit the 30,000-square-foot location with a full complement of smart technologies.
The new TRIPhase Technologies Zionsville showroom says it all, with room after room of new and newer home technology tempting all the senses. Luxurious home theatres with advanced audio and video capabilities (complete with candy counters and popcorn carts), smart desks and bars with secret compartments, speakers masquerading as works of art (such as an Ente SoundTile for your Sonos® system), layered lighting schemes that can change to fit whatever mood you’re in…this is the forefront of home intelligence, and it’s right here in the Midwest.
Nestled in a 50-acre wooded property in the Indianapolis metropolitan area, the owners of this Colorado-inspired dream home had a clear design vision for their space — and a long list of technology to integrate into multiple rooms throughout. As is often the case, the tech-savvy husband and his interior designer wife had to find a middle ground that would accommodate everything on their technology wishlist while not interfering with the design of the space.
Shanna Haecker, Owner for Universal Design Group and TRIPhase Technologies, is profiled in this month’s Absolute Living Magazine. She shares, “Having a vision and a plan is one thing, but executing it is another. You cannot do it alone.”
“Invest in your people and your team and treat them the way you would want to be treated. Do the right thing and it will come back to you tenfold. We have always done that and after 25 years we are very blessed to be where we are.” An entrepreneur from an early age, Robert Haecker has come a long way since he started his first business Trixx Skate Shop at age 14. Recently, Absolute Living sat down with Robert.
