As audio / video professionals, we form a team with your architect, your interior designer, and your craftsmen. Each discipline brings its expertise and experience to bear on the common goal: create the best space possible for you and your needs. Together the team members propose ideas, improve them, and incorporate them into an overall design.
Sometimes there are tradeoffs. The best-sounding speaker might be too visually prominent. Or the room dimensions might be acoustically unfortunate. Or wallpaper in the home theater might tint the video green. In these tradeoff situations, we don’t advocate; we educate. Once we’ve informed you of the multi-disciplinary consideration, you can then make your best decisions.
A few words about aesthetics. We want your room to “feel” right. As you enter a room, you immediately see it — the architecture, the interior design, the construction details, the lighting. Next, you hear it — the sense of acoustic space, the reverberations, the music playing. You may also smell it — fresh-baked cookies or new leather chairs. You may perceive its textures — wall surfaces, fabrics, flooring. Often, the non-visual design considerations are overlooked. We help our clients create a complete environment, one that pleases all the senses.
