PROJECTS WE LOVE
Multi-Media Pit Room Why do you love this project? It escapes the ordinary vision of a media room. The custom-built seating and upholstered blue fabric in this pit room is unlike any other media room. Systems Design prewired the space with a 5.1 Cinema Series Bowers & Wilkins surround sound and an in-wall JL Audio Subwoofer. We installed and programmed Savant Motorized Shades that integrate with the Savant Home Automation control system. We love the seamless AV design of this space, where everything is high-end and creatively concealed. We love the cool tech in this home; pressing a button opens the front door and the garage, and turns off the lights on every floor of this five-story home. Were there any architects/designers that influenced this project? ARC design was inspired by the unique pit room at Spring Place, a private club in New York. The creative design was a col-
laboration between the builder, buyers, and the AV company. Tyler Murphy and Tim Caraboolad with ARC Design, high-end designers/builders in Boston, worked on the layout and design while the buyer was in charge of unique finishes. Angel Centeno, owner of Systems Design, was involved in all aspects of the AV with state-of-the-art audio/video and home automation equipment, including motorized shades. What were the challenges faced in this particular project? There were a lot of pipes and soffits running through the space that had to be eliminated. By using open web trust and a thoughtful layout, the builder was able to create this beautiful space. Systems Design installed a complex, large AV system with a goal that it had to be concealed in a small space. The client wanted the shades hidden, so the builder created custom built-in pockets for the motorized shades.
Systems Design works with designers, builders, architects and homeowners to design-install integrated AV systems for homes and commercial spaces.
