250 City Road


The apartments at Siena House, Vermont House and The Luna and Bollinder Collection conclude the final phases of homes at Berkeley’s flagship 250 City Road development in Islington. The installation of Zuma, a high-performance immersive smart technology device that controls sound and lighting throughout each apartment, elevates Berkeley’s already exceptional specification to new heights.

250 City Road’s location in the heart of Tech City, minutes from Old Street, has strongly inspired Berkeley’s choices; it is the first housebuilder to install Zuma as standard in one of its developments. Zuma is an integrated sound and light device which provides the ultimate immersive experience. The platform is discreetly tucked away in the ceiling and allows complete control over lighting and sound across different rooms of the home. The system has reinvented the way sound and light can be experienced within the home and combines voice or app-controlled dimmable and tuneable lighting. The device has been developed by an expert team, led by one of the world’s leading industrial designers, Morten Warren, along with renowned acoustic engineer, Laurence Dickie. Zuma not only provides a totally new way to experience lighting and audio, it also discreetly becomes part of the home. Residents can connect iPhones, iPads, and their television to enjoy a thrilling room-filling soundtrack to any movie without having to use a cluttered sound bar.
