We were pleased to recently be asked to photograph a pre-designed theater project by Acoustic Smart. The 5-month project was created together with Connect Consulting, who was responsible for the electronics. We’ve photographed a lot of theaters over the years and never get tired of them. They’re some of the nicest rooms in the house and it’s great to see how different tastes and approaches create different styles and experiences of a room.

This project was a bit different in that is was a pre-designed theater, designed and built by Acoustic Smart. It was new construction, built with the usual noise barrier and floating walls to decouple vibrations and create an isolated space. The main difference is in the pre-designed aspect of it. The benefit being that it uses only acoustic architecture. Sculpted, fabric paneled acoustic treatments are used to create a millwork effect without the cost of expensive millwork.

The dual motorized seating makes for a comfortable viewing experience and fiber optic stars, including the big and little dippers brought the cost of this room to between $80k – $100k.

Chill Media Room – Photographs

We spent an enjoyable afternoon photographing interiors of a small but wonderful residential project for our long-time client EDG (Electronics Design Group) that I wanted to share. I’m constantly amazed at the level of work they do and how they pack so much technological punch into even the smallest space.

The kids are off to college and we have all this space… now what?¬† The room that used to serve as the “rec room”, filled with kids playing Xbox, Playstation, Skeeball and hanging out with friends to watch TV, is transformed.

This “chill” media room is an empty nester’s solution of how to best use that now vacant disaster area… I mean “rec room”. A sanctuary that totally encompasses and allows for the client’s passions… listening to 2 channel audio, watching films, reading and enjoying the open air lower deck. A true multi-purpose media room with great ambiance. Emphasizing function over form, the room sports some great elements, including a funky record stand, retro clocks decorating the walls, Eames listening chairs¬† and attractive, but visible acoustical panels, bass traps and diffusers.
