Architectural Hideaway

An exciting project in St Ives on Sydney’s Upper North Shore enabled us to work with luxury home builders, Carty Homes, for the first. It was also the first time we’d worked on a house constructed using Hebel Solid Panels.

Tovo Lighting, together with the owners, designed the very detailed lighting plan.

We can’t wait for the next opportunity to team up with all these partners again.

The stand out features of the electrical works in this project included under-floor heating and heated towel rails in the bathroom, the beautiful large glass pendant feature in the grand entrance space and automated blinds throughout the home.

Our wi-fi system has an extra access point to work with the specs of the Hebel solid panels in conjunction with a Sonos Zone to deliver music in the outdoor room, the pool and the sauna in the cabana!

The Luxury Resort feel and state-of-the-art finishes were so impressive that the house was a finalist in the HIA Australia Greensmart Awards for 2017 and featured on Australia’s Best Houses.


“This project opens a new chapter in our business, being our first complete Hebel Solid home. Because of this we needed to use trades that were passionate, innovative and highly skilled.

We worked closely with Hills Electrical and Wiring Solutions from the initial design component right through to the last globe in our stunning foyer pendant.

The whole Hills team could not have been more helpful in all areas of the project. They showed impressive attention-to-detail and helped us achieve an outcome we are very proud of.”
