Penthouse perfection

An authentic home cinema at the touch of a button

These inner-city Sydney property owners recently moved into their new penthouse apartment, inspired by New York- and London-style modern penthouses. Looking for an audio-visual and automation solution, they turned to Life Style Store. “The penthouse is occupied by my partner and I and he spends a lot of time overseas for work, so we wanted a very simple and easy-to-use system that was low maintenance,” says the homeowner. “Apart from when the theatre is in use we wanted a very light, bright feel to the apartment.

“We requested a living room TV system with great sound, but didn’t want any speakers visible, not even speaker grilles. We also wanted to be able to transform the room into a proper cinema at the touch of a button. Music and TV around the apartment was important but we didn’t want to see the other TVs when they weren’t in use. We also wanted to be able to control all of the audio-visual and lighting in the apartment from a single press on a keypad. “Our wish list to Life Style Store included invisible speakers, motorised TVs and garden speakers, but the final aesthetic look and what we could modify in the apartment was somewhat governed by the body corporate and building by-laws, even though we own the penthouse.”

The couple declares the home theatre to be their favourite part of the penthouse. The living room can be transformed from a TV room into a proper home theatre at the touch of a button. A projector and screen motorise down from within the ceiling cavity and a motorised curtain extends from within a concealment in the rear wall to section off this space. The area even features colour-change lighting. “Life Style Store listened to what we wanted and delivered a system that met all of our needs,” says the homeowner. “We were so impressed with what they delivered in this home, our main residence, that we have had the company install two almost identical systems in two of our other properties — the only difference being that we went with Control4 lighting rather than Dynalite in our other two properties.”

“We have had the pleasure of dealing with Life Style Store for more than 10 years and are extremely impressed with its professionalism and commitment to our projects,”says homeowner Craig. “Vinod and his team’s knowledge of the latest products and ability to make them work seamlessly is exceptional. We wouldn’t consider anyone else for any future installations.”
