This comfortable, stylish home theater in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado is proof that you don’t need 1,000 square feet for a high-performance experience. As part of an extensive basement remodel, the homeowners asked us to provide them with a luxury entertainment hub featuring state-of-the-art equipment and smart home technology.
The entire home theater is controlled via a Savant system, which allows the homeowners to manage every aspect of the technology (both in the room and throughout the home) via one intuitive interface accessible via an iPad or iPhone.
Inside the theater, a Screen Innovations’ acoustically transparent 120-inch screen, optimized for 4K content, takes center stage. The Triad theater speakers are located behind the screen so the action sounds like it’s coming directly from the image. Other speakers and subwoofers are located behind the black, flocked, fabric-wrapped walls to produce high-fidelity sound while maintaining the integrity of the stylish interior design.
The speakers are part of an overall Dolby Atmos surround sound system (7.4.4), which provides viewers with a theatre-quality sound experience. This speaker system is complimented by a full acoustic treatment, installed to both optimize the in-room sound and ensure it doesn’t travel into the rest of the home.
A Sony 4K Ultra HD VPL-VW350ES projector delivers stunning image quality with 1500 ANSI lumens of brightness, anamorphic 3D, and 4K HD, which captures every detail with exceedingly crisp precision and vibrant color.
The Savant system allows the owner to watch movies via an integrated AppleTV, as well as a Kaleidescape movie storage system. The Kaleidescape system is optimized for 4K viewing, allowing the owner to download 4K movies directly from the Kaleidescape on-line store.
Now for the finishing touches:
We worked closely with the interior designer, Jane Freking, to create the perfect movie-night ambiance complete with custom black leather Cineak theater seats to complement the luxurious wall fabric, and finished with mood lighting by Lutron, controlled by an iPad with the push of a single button for lights up, lights down or lights somewhere in between.
With every aspect of the home theater controlled by the Savant system, the homeowners can pre-program a movie-night setting that automatically dims the lights; turns on the projector and sound system; and sets the ideal room temperature. Time for a popcorn break or the end of the movie? Push another button and the lights come on; the projector turns off; and the room resets for the next night in.
The home theater project, completed in concert with interior designer Jane Freking of JF Design, and home builder Haley Custom Homes, allows the homeowners and their family a space to kick back, relax and enjoy time together, while providing an escape from the outside world.
