A Gilded Experience
One of our clients’ neighbors called Electronics Design Group because they were going to construct an addition onto their existing estate and wanted a media system area in it. When we initially met with them and their architect, builder, and designer to discuss the project, we learned that the proposed “addition” was half the size of their existing 10,000-square-foot home, and the media system would be located in a 5,000-square-foot indoor pool/recreation area – a longtime dream of the owners! This tranquil 2-story area is connected to the main house on 3 levels. They wanted to be able to relax in the pool or Jacuzzi and watch sports, TV or movies in this “multi-purpose” space. There are many large windows with no window treatments to allow natural light (the media system was going to be used mainly in the evenings), and included a large bar, salt water aquarium, and a unique Harley Davidson bike display area. They wanted to be able to see the media system from the pool, Jacuzzi, sitting area and bar. We collaborated on laying out the system so it was centrally located to all spaces.
