The winning project in this category, which includes everything from a dedicated home theater to a basketball court, is the ultimate getaway play space. As DC Home Systems told us, the project demanded many technological solutions.
Those solutions included: Clean, full and powerful audio that would blanket all interior spaces without interfering with the aesthetic; control systems and user interfaces that were consistent with their other homes, and easy for guests to use; a “Best in Class” theater room that was optimized for guest and family fun; and hidden technology.
There was more, of course – including an HVAC system that would control temperature and humidity in order to preserve the client’s rare, expensive art collection, and a fresh air supply for the project’s massive fireplace.
AV gear includes KEF and Triad speakers and subwoofers, Lab.Gruppen amps, Leon subs and soundbar, Sony 4K TVs, a Seymour Screen Excellence Cinemascope screen, a Digital Projection 4K Dual-LED projector, and Crestron controls.
The “Playhouse” met the homeowner’s wildest dreams – and impressed CEDIA’s judges, too. One member of the panel remarked: “It’s one of the most well-rounded projects I’ve seen.” In addition to the Special Project Award this entire integration won in 2017, the Home Theater alone won a CEDIA award for Best Cinema in the Level IV division
-- as well as a Global Award.
