Wellness Residential Responds To The Need For Quality Sleep

Apr. 8th, 2019

For UHNWIs, "ultra high net worth individuals," there's a rather traditional trend on the rise - quality sleep. This quest for optimal beauty rest demands living spaces that can support it. And Troon Pacific in San Francisco has mastered the art of sweet dreams.

Think light-calming window shades, outdoor meditation areas and extensive EMF (electromagnetic field) mitigation. Accompanied by the luxuries high-end residents know and love, such as infinity pools, expansive wine cellars and private gardens, these homes blend new-age technology with old-school pleasures.

All bedrooms are equipped with shielded cables that mitigate EMF (Electromagnetic Field) signals, which can impede the production of melatonin and affect the body’s circadian rhythm.

To carry the calming music, guided meditation or white noise throughout the halls of the home, speakers were installed in master bedrooms, bathrooms and showers.

Automated Lutron shades transform harsh light into soft, calming light (or block light entirely).

The Merv 13 system filters air throughout the home with 9-12 air changes per day with heat exchanger to maintain consistent air temperature throughout the night.

Additional factors considered during the design phase were comfort, noise and mindfulness.

o   Rubber, felt or foam acoustic isolators on all water and drain lines at wood framing to reduce vibration/sound

o   Insulated interior walls (uncommon) 

o   Thick, concrete or Gyp-Crete floor assemblies

o   Constant, low-speed air ventilation minimizes noise and feeling of air movement

o   Silent radiant heating rather than forced air heating

o   LED drivers, which do not produce a humming sound

o   Use of Quiet-rock at select locations such as plumbing walls, mechanical rooms and ceilings below roof drains to reduce sounds from rain or plumbing

Electrical Interference

o   Shielded cables in all bedrooms for EMF (Electromagnetic Field) mitigation

o   Wi-Fi kill switch shuts off the signal at the touch of a button

o   Metal sheeting underneath flooring to block EMF signals near electric panels
