Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov scored a $2.6 million custom contemporary home in Redondo Beach, California.
Built on a narrow lot of just 6,000 square feet, the custom contemporary was designed by Manhattan Beach firm Michael Lee Architects. The design is defined by its clean lines, floor-to-ceiling glass and an overall modern aesthetic.
Telescoping doors on the lower level open to a courtyard with a lap pool. Extended balconies wrap around the upper-level bedroom units. A gourmet kitchen, dining room, living room and entertainment room are among its features.
EPIC Glass Tinting was subcontracted by the builder/developer/general contractor to treat the glass for heat and glare retention. The commercial grade glass came with a Low-E coating, however it did virtually nothing for climate control.
The easterly morning sun and the westerly afternoon sun was blasting this property so badly, the HVAC system did very little to relieve the uneven hot temperature spots. Slava’s wife was having her make up melting below the sunroof in the master bedroom. The sunroof was removed and brought back to the shop for a proper installation.
Bob Kerr, owner of EPIC Glass Tinting, meet personally with Slava Voynov to discuss all of the options available to him. We installed four different solar control film samples on the master bedroom glass to determine which one he would be the most satisfied with.
Slava selected the Solargard TrueVue 5 ps. This is the darkest shade available, safe for dual pane insulated glass units, seal failure, and glass breakage. Lifetime warranty on materials and labor for the window film also made this an attractive choice.
The results were so awesome that our builder/developer/general contractor decided not to purchase anymore Low-E coated glass from the glass manufacturer. The new policy is to strictly use EPIC Glass Tinting for all of their high-performance glass coatings for future residential and commercial properties.
The company caters to high-end clients for the entertainment industry.
