Twilight Solutions had an interesting set of challenges with this project. Glass and stone surfaces can be highly sound-reflective, and that’s just one of the reasons it’s rare to see windows, doors and a fireplace in a dedicated home theater.

HOMEOWNER’S WISH LIST

During the building of an entertainment wing of this home (as part of a larger remodeling job), the customer – who’d never had a private theater before – wanted a versatile room for viewing movies and sports from varying types of seating. The client insisted on the highest performance standards and a unique decorative flair.

CHALLENGES

The homeowner loved the footprint of the room, which includes large windows and French doors that lead outside and a massive stone fireplace. Additionally, the room’s adjacency to other areas in the home demanded a rear-projection display setup that wouldn’t rob too many square feet from the home’s garage. The placement and size of the glass screen also required unusual placement for the front speakers in this room.

SOLUTIONS

Video
After multiple trial runs of several screen sizes, a custom screen and mirror assembly that resulted in a display of 133 inches was the ticket. A Da-Lite Thru-The-Wall mirrors and Da-Glass screen are driven by Runco projection equipment.

Sound
In addition to careful speaker placement for the front channels – left, right and center in a horizontal line over the screen to give every viewer the same experience – the Twilight crew consulted the homeowner to learn what kind of sound that customer was specifically looking for. The result is a system that really express “big production” soundtracks with dramatic, powerful bass. Custom baffling ensures that all the speakers work perfectly in a room with sound that’s isolated from the rest of the building.

Lighting
Forty individual lighting fixtures occupy fourteen “zones” of lighting in the room, all designed to accent the room’s décor. Windows and doors are covered with motorized draperies, and every aspect of the room – including ventilation – is easily controlled by the Crestron system’s 2.8-inch handheld touch panel.
