Home The Theater Audio Blackout Shades Masking System Control System

With no space available for a full front projection home theater except the living room, we began the journey.  We agreed that "home theater" would come first and "living room" second.

As it worked out, we achieved excellent results having both together. No guest ever walks in without saying Wow!

Since the "theater" was to be located in the living room, we felt it must make a major statement as to what it represented.  Otherwise it would simply look like a window with the curtains drawn.

Our design was inspired by the excellent book Private Home Theaters by Theo Kalomirakis, a person who has often been referred to as the Cecil B. DeMille of private theater design.

The screen is located 2' back from the curtains to allow space for the Atlantic Technology speakers.  For this reason, the wide angle lens used to make these pictures makes the screen appear to be somewhat smaller than it actually is.  The pillars are hollow to allow the curtains to stack partially back inside.
