Our Work

Lower Level Multi Use Entertainment Space

An empty basement space gets a serious makeover

The primary goal for a Wayne based client of ours was to work with their contractor to fit out an unfinished basement into a multi use space that their young children could enjoy, with the ability to accommodate friends & family for movies & periodic World Cup parties.

Adapting a design developed by the homeowner & their contractor, we started with an open theater space with two rows of seating facing a 144” fixed movie screen & ceiling mounted high definition projector. For ease of use, we programmed a single remote control for “one touch” operation of the theater system, including integrated lighting scenes.

Just outside the theater space, a multipurpose entertainment area was created, based around a large cards/gaming table, with good sight lines to the open theater area. An adjacent bar & seating space features a granite countertop on an attractive, semi circular bar, with a 37” flat panel TV placed so people seated at the bar can watch the same movie being viewed on the theater screen.

A children’s play room & a billiards room finish off the space, each connected to the entertainment system in a fashion that provides music & video throughout.

The final result is a functional, affordable, and visually striking entertainment space, with audio video equipment integrated in a practical fashion.

Living Room Media Room Makeover

Dramatic Repurposing Of An Existing Space

One of our Blue Bell area clients asked us to create a “ night & day” cinema quality entertainment space in a rarely used first floor living room space. The goal was a space that could double as a comfortable space for relaxing & casual TV viewing by day, that would transform into a fully functional meda room by night.

Working with a handpicked team of subcontractors we started by defining the space with a custom built room divider that separated a hallway from the room, creating a space to perfectly position a 60” Hi def TV for casual daytime viewing.

A beautiful stretch fabric ceiling system was integrated with custom millwork to hide cinema quality speakers, and provided a perfect space to install sound absorption material to help tune the acoustics of the room, yielding a beautiful, functional design element to what was previously an ordinary living room.

All electronics were installed in an adjacent equipment closet, with easy, intuitive control provided via an iPad app based touch panel interface, making operation of the system a snap.

Last but not least, when the sun goes down, a single touch of the remote turns off the TV and drops a 110” wide movie screen into position, providing cinema quality sound & images, perfect for a movie or a ball game.
