HA Project 15 004

Finding a happy-medium for a noisy teenage crowd and a calm get-together for adults is never an easy task. The scope of this project was to enhance a 1,000 square foot recreation room, added to the beautiful Idaho lodge style luxury home, with electronics that met the interests of the two diverse scenarios. The room is carefully decorated and equipped with a shuffle board table, billiard table, darts board and a beautiful bar. The electronics had to be hidden, useful yet unobtrusive.

We introduced to the homeowners an idea to install a regular television unit behind a one-way transparent mirror. A very talented crew of carpenters built a structure which assures proper installation of the 60” Samsung LED television and also allows access for service. The television disappears completely behind the mirror when it is off, but is big enough to be seen from anywhere in the room when it is on.

The television is connected to a Sony surround sound receiver with a Control4 controller build in. There is a set of (7) in-ceiling and in-wall Klipsch speakers painted to blend in with the decoration of the room and the active subwoofer is hidden in the bench. The speakers are placed to fill the whole room with a full, larger than life sound. The video sources connected are an HD Cable receiver and Blu-ray player. We have also configured streaming services from Sony receiver like Pandora, Netflix, Video, Photo and Music media, and Sony entertainment packages.

Our installation did not affect the room decor, but added a lot of functionality to it. With an intuitive and easy to operate system, our design creates a “wow” factor for guests ranging from rambunctious teenage boys to a classy assembly. Overall, the owners are pleased with the system, because the room provides the best for both worlds and we are already working on applying the same idea to the rest of the house.
