Pump Up the Volume
A renovation of a New Jersey family’s 25-year-old-house inspired the homeowners to turn their dark and dreary basement into a state-of-the-art home theater. Like most basements, this one offered plenty of space to incorporate the standard big-screen display, a slew of speakers and comfortable seating, plus a pool table and a bar at the back. But this home theater space is far from common.
No, it’s not your average home theater experience. And that’s just what the owners of this contemporary space wanted. “They didn’t want a theater that looked like a movie theater,” says Sean Weiner of Baltimore-area custom electronics company Starr Systems Design. “They wanted no frilly curtains, no simulated movie theater look, no popcorn machine. They just wanted a comfortable, contemporary space to enjoy movies, television and sporting events.”
Something from Nothing
This home theater wasn’t even a room originally, but a hallway area that custom electronics company Audio Images and acoustics guru Anthony Grimani of Performance Media Industries (PMI) converted into a highly entertaining space.
