Home Theatre & Multi-Room Audio-Visual, Installation & Programming

Overview

Life Style Store were involved in the building process for this stunning multi level house from the initial design stage. We worked with the client to design and deliver a premium Custom Home Theatre System and multiple Multi-Room Audio-Visual zones were installed which included a selection of high quality reputable brands to provide sound and picture throughout the home.

The home theatre features a Sony 4K projector with cinemascope zoom in conjunction with a Screen Innovations 144″ 2.35:1 Slate Zero Edge Screen with LED backlighting. Sound is taken care of by premium Anthem electronics and Paradigm speakers and subwoofers.

From an aesthetics perspective, the home theatre features a custom starlight ceiling with 900 LED strands including a 150 strand shooting star system and two rows of cinema seating.

Stealth Acoustics “Invisible” speakers have been installed throughout many of the main areas of the home so that the speakers do not impact on the visual aesthetics of these rooms. Whilst many zones were fitted off at the time of installation, we have also pre-wired an additional 10 rooms within the home for expansion of the multi-room audio system at a later date.

This project highlights how a high performance home theatre and audio-visual system can be integrated into a modern home in an unobtrusive and easy to use manner.

POINT OF PERFECTION

Entertainment is critical in the southern Sydney home of this family of five

Life Style Store was involved in the building process for this stunning multi-level house at Kangaroo Point from the initial design stage. The company worked with the client to design and deliver a premium custom home theatre system, and multiple multi-room audio-visual zones were installed that include high quality reputable brands to provide sound and picture throughout the home. “We are a family of five, plus two dogs, and our kids are a bit older, so giving them their own spaces was crucial,” explains homeowner Danny. “Automation is critical in a house the size of ours — everything is controlled from either a touchscreen or our phones, and the kids and their friends are constantly streaming off their devices.

“It was important to us to have a free-flowing, ultra-modern family home with lots of natural light, and we wanted it to be unique and different. We also envisioned our home to have a zen type feel — to feel like a holiday home.” The design used natural earthy colours, and part of the original brief was to have it look a little industrial. As a result, the home incorporates a lot of concrete, bluestone, glass, bronze mirrors and veneer. The home theatre features a Sony VPLVW-550ES 4K projector with CinemaScope zoom in conjunction with a Screen Innovations 144-inch 2.35:1 Slate Zero Edge screen with LED backlighting. Sound is taken care of by premium Anthem electronics and Paradigm speakers and subwoofers. From an aesthetics perspective, the home theatre features a custom starlight ceiling with 900 LED strands, including a 150-strand shooting star system, and two rows of cinema seating.

Stealth Acoustics ‘Invisible’ speakers have been installed throughout many of the main areas of the home so that the speakers do not impact on the visual aesthetics of these rooms. While many zones were fitted off at the time of installation, Life Style Store also pre-wired an additional 10 rooms within the home for expansion of the multi-room audio system at a later date. “Our home highlights attention to detail,” says Danny. “We have a lot of features in the house that haven’t really been seen in conventional homes.” Hidden rooms can be accessed via hidden pivot doors, and there’s also an all-off-form concrete island bench with stainless-steel doors, hidden mirrored TVs, cantilevered stairs, and the main floor slab tiles are 3.5m x 1.5m. The entry foyer to the house is also unique — the family used an enormous amount of Bamstone (bluestone) laid from the driveway down to the two ponds. The whole exterior of the house is also clad in zinc and Alucobond, with no external render at all. “The suspended infinity-edge pool on level four is also quite special,” says Danny. “For me, there are two spaces that I constantly congregate in, one being the sitting room next to the fish tank and the other is my pool deck.”

This project highlights how a high-performance home theatre and audio-visual system can be integrated into a modern home in an unobtrusive and easy-to-use manner.

“The builder lost all his hair on this job; it was a challenging build,” laughs Danny. “The architect also played a huge role. Constant visits and changes were normal. I think we made something in the order of about 90 changes throughout the build process. “We didn’t want any beams or structures to obstruct views or free-flowing spaces, and this was difficult considering the mass of the house. We used post tensioning in our transfer slabs — this helped eliminate beams. “The fish tank was also a challenge. Getting it to fit and flow freely was difficult, and cladding it in veneer was even more complex. “The air-conditioning was also challenging. We didn’t want any vents for either the supply or return to show, so hiding it all in the veneer was extremely challenging.

“From the minute I met Vinod, I remember telling my wife that this is who we will be using,” says Danny. “His knowledge and guidance was priceless, and nothing was too much trouble. I then met John when it came time to install the system and again was blown away. The care and knowledge from not just Vinod and John but their installers was amazing, and their after-service was also great. I will happily recommend them to anyone, even the most fastidious people. I can’t wait for them to do my next project.”
