Project Profile: Kentfield Shades

We have done a lot of A/V and Lighting at this Kentfield project. This highlights the new Lutron Essentials battery powered roller shades. The shades feature a matching fabric fascia to hide the battery section and fabric roll. Custom sizes, super quiet, smooth and in sync, controlled by Lutron's iPhone/iPad app and RadioRa2 wall keypads. Programmable timed events, individual or group control makes these a perfect fit.

Project Profile: Mill Valley Custom

Another gorgeous home owned by a super cool couple in Mill Valley, CA. He is high tech oriented and she is an interior designer. Our favorite combo! We were called in to upgrade the system and existing rear projection TV. One of the biggest concerns of the client was how we would get the old TV out of the second floor, 6 guys thats how!

We rebuilt the TV wall raising the alcove for a perfect custom fit. The 65" flatscreen was mated with Artison Masterpiece LCR speakers mounted to the sides of the display all on an articulating bracket for servicing. Custom grilles were built to hide the speakers for a seemless aesthetic. We provided a gorgeous Venetian plaster texture to the wall with a custom mixed color. The results speak volumes.

The electronics and wiring were all updated for optimum performance. An in-wall subwoofer with rack mount power amp and in-ceiling surround speakers were added for 7.1 surround sound. RTI remote and iPad control of the 4 media rooms in the house was provided. 9 zones of Sonos with in-ceiling speakers and an upgraded network was installed to facilitate the app driven systems. 

This project was a finalist for Electronic House Magazine Project of the Year. See the article at this link.

Project Profile: Ross Buddha Bar Theater

This absolutely stunning home in Ross, CA was once owned by movie producer Barry Levinson. The original theater was built for him as a screening room to view films before release with actors such as Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. 

Our client who purchased the home was looking to update the system from the old 4:3 screen and analog equipment. She also wanted to have a room for entertaing and late night parties. Our suggestion was to create a Buddha Bar theme which she loved. Thru a detailed process we agreed on this high resolution image and had it converted to canvas. We then went with an anamorphic Da-Lite screen and Runco DLP projector with their best anamorphic lens. 

The speaker system was also upgraded using dual JL Audio Fathom subwoofers and Triad speakers for 7.2 surround sound. The equipment was upgraded using high end processing, theater amp and A/V sources. Wiring was upgraded to high end Monster Cable M-Series and an RTI control system with Rs-232 source control was added. Throw in a super fast ethernet/wifi network for the entire residence and its streaming time. 

This project was voted a finalist for Project of the Year by Electronic House Magazine. See the Electronic House article at this link

Project Profile: SF Penthouse

We were on this project for a couple years performing the A/V and Theater design-build. It was an amazing project with lierally too much to list. The home itself has 52 Sound Advance Invisible Speakers with In-Wall Subwoofers. Two Middle Atlantic racks in the mechanical room house the massive quantity of electronic components. The Theater entry is thru a secret bookshelf where the climate controlled theater features 9 channel surround sound, a custom built-in couch, wild tuck and roll upholstry with outrageous lighting. This was one super cool project to collaborate on with the owners.
