Home Theatre & Home Automation

System Price $170,000

System Includes:

Custom Home Theatre Room, Multi-Room Audio, Security, Automated Lighting, Installation & Programming

The owners of this home wanted to convert the existing formal lounge room into a dedicated home cinema. Life Style Store took care of totally transforming this room. We handled all elements of the room transformation including the acoustic treatments, custom wall finishing’s, automated lighting control, motorised blind, custom starlight ceiling, raised floor, cinema seating and of course the audio-visual system.

The client was adamant about retaining their existing joinery in the room. We had to modify this joinery and relocate it to the side of the room so that we could maintain a clean aesthetic at the front of the theatre and utilise a fixed screen. They also wanted a TV retained in the joinery for when their young children wanted to use the room during the day or for playtime. The client wanted the same room entry door retained so that it matched the homes interior when you were in the general living area. To achieve this, the internals of the door were tinted and lined to match the room aesthetically. They also wanted the timber floor retained in the room so we had to build a raised floor and match it to the existing timber flooring. A channel track was built at the rear of the room for the curtain to fall behind the rear of the raised floor.

The home theatre system features a Sony 4K projector, a Screen Innovations 2.35:1 slate zero edge screen and Paradigm home theatre speakers.

Control4 allowed us to automate the control of the audio visual items, the motorised curtains and blind and the lighting within this room. Life Style Store also completed automated lighting, security cameras, an alarm system and a Pakedge wireless network. Puck based lighting was utilised as this was a 3 storey home with very difficult cable access. However we ran new cabling for all of the cameras, security and access control.

Hollywood at home

A total transformation sees a formal lounge room become the place for favourite movies to come to life before your eyes

The new owners of this Castle Hill home wanted to convert their existing traditional living room into a dedicated home cinema. Life Style Store took care of all facets including room aesthetics, acoustic treatments and, of course, the audio-visual system. “The client was adamant about retaining their existing joinery in the room,” explains Vinod Christie-David, managing director of Life Style Store. “We had to modify this joinery and relocate it to the side of the room so that we could maintain a clean aesthetic at the front of the theatre and be able to install a fixed screen rather than an electric roll-down option. The picture quality of the theatre system was extremely important to the homeowner, which is why we wanted to install a fixed screen over a retractable option. A Sony 550ES projector combines with a CinemaScope 160-inch Screen Innovations Zero Edge Slate screen to provide a truly stunning image. The big-screen image is completed by a sound system to match, featuring Paradigm speakers and a Marantz AV Receiver to power them.” The family also wanted a TV retained in the joinery for when their young children used the room during the day or for playtime. “The client wanted the same room entry door retained so that it matched the home’s interior when you were in the general family area,” says Vinod. “To achieve this, theatre side internals of the door were tinted and lined to match the theatre room aesthetically but the family room side was left untouched.

“They also requested that the timber floor be retained in the room, so we had to build a raised floor and match it to the existing timber flooring. A channel track was built at the rear of the room for the curtain to fall behind the rear of the raised floor.” A custom bulkhead and false ceiling were added for the starlight ceiling, a raised fl oor was built for the rear row of cinema seating and the joinery was relocated. “Control4 allowed us to automate the control of the audiovisual items, the motorised curtains and blind and the lighting within this room,” says Vinod.

“We also completed automated lighting, security cameras, an alarm system and a Pakedge wireless network throughout the rest of the home. Puck-based Control4 lighting control was utilised as this was a three-storey home with very difficult cable access. However, we successfully ran new cabling for all of the cameras, security and access control.”
