Rye, NY

Our client was embarking on an extensive house renovation and asked us to provide a design and proposal for a fully integrated control system, providing control of thirteen music zones, video, a Lutron RadioRA2 lighting to service all of the house and exterior lighting, and eight Savant thermostat zones for HVAC control.

 

One specific request from the client was for us to design and provide an isolated music studio with a professional PA system. We provided them with QSC speakers, connections for instruments, Roland amplifiers, and a professional Karaoke set-up with a 40” television, commercial microphones and Mackie audio mixer. The music studio is enclosed and acoustically isolated featuring a large sound proof glass window, spanning the entire length of one of the walls, providing the feel of a professional recording studio. The room is set-up to be a live performance room, and has the capability to be a recording studio utilizing Pro Tools.

This custom designed theater in Rye, NY was built as an entertaining space that could accommodate both adults and children. The home theater is connected to a lower level game room where a lot of the homeowner’s entertaining takes place. It was important that the theater room was sound-isolated and acoustically treated so that those enjoying the movie theater experience were not disturbed by the outside noise and vice versa. We brought in an acoustical treatment firm that provided an acoustically suspended ceiling, sound isolation insulation and acoustically treated fabric wrapped wall panels to ensure the desired result.

 

Along with a state-of-the-art Digital Projection projector, B&W speakers for front, side and rear channel surround sound effect, a B&W subwoofer and a B&W subwoofer amplifier, a Savant system with SmartView Video Tiling provides the control interface for the new home theater. Our clients can simultaneously view up to four programs at once. With the swipe of a finger on an iPad they can minimize or maximize a view and change which program is played through the theater sound system.
