Wipliance LLC, one of the nation’s leading system integrators headquartered in Bellevue, WA, was recognized with the 2022 Lutron Excellence Award for Best Resimercial Systems on their work on the Spire residences. 

Spire is a 343-residence condominium tower in the South Lake Union neighborhood in Seattle- situated in the shadow of the Space Needle. Though a commercial project in many aspects of construction, there are many residential elements within the amenities spaces and residences. Wipliance’s involvement in this project started years before the tower was constructed, and required close collaboration with the developers, marketing team and commercial contractors responsible for elements of construction and wiring. 

Wipliance fully outfitted the offsite sales center and model with Homeworks and Triathlon shading. We created a 3D projection system that allowed residents to see the future view from their condo via augmented reality. The Spire team had a vision of creating tailored packages for buyers to be able to easily add upgrades from a streamlined selection of approved offerings for shades and lighting controls. 

In the finished building, Wipliance provided over 3700 Lutron shades ranging from manual to wireless motorized in every window of the tower. In addition to the private residences, Wipliance furnished Lutron shades and Homeworks controls for the building’s amenities spaces which include a chef’s kitchen, movie theater, coworking space, executive lounge, dance studio and 3 gyms- all with amazing views. 

This project has been featured in Connected Design Magazine and Wipliance continues to work with Spire homeowners today to further enhance their residences with home automation solutions.
