Peek behind the curtains (or cabinet I should say) at this award-winning theater room project and you’ll come to find it goes well beyond being a simple retreat for this family to watch movies. Blending traditional streaming, media playback and a full-bodied selection of today’s top videogames, Innovative Sight & Sound created a customized entertainment mecca with the help of partner Cinema Tech.
To get started, Innovative had to determine the theater room design for seating layout, media equipment location and lighting opportunities. Meanwhile, CinemaTech assisted with acoustic treatments in addition to creating 3D renderings of the room layout, textures, wall fabric and lighting design to confirm the vision.
“The biggest challenge in this project was timing,” says Innovative director of operation Forrest Walker. “The client had purchased this new home after the drywall phase was complete. So, coming in late in the timeline presented a number of challenges for the Innovative team.”
“Our design team had to go through numerous changes to the room construction from its original state working with the home builder to create the tiered theater platforms and reinforce the wall that would eventually hold Samsung’s mammoth 146-inch video wall.”
All the ingredients to this theater room’s design are nothing less than premium. Samsung‘s 146-inch The Wall, Sonus Faber front speakers, JL Audio subwoofers, Bowers & Wilkins in-ceilings, McIntosh power and processor, Kaleidescape 4K media server, plus madVR’s Envy “to deliver the best video processing on the planet,” says Walker.

“A theater of this caliber would not be complete with a top tier lighting design that features fully controllable lighting, starlight ceiling, linear lighting elements, and a luminescent stone bar top underlit to match the ambiance of the room,” he adds.
Innovative even went the extra mile by giving each media cabinet its own custom look with unique shelving and lighting design. The gaming cabinet, especially, stands out with its layout of every modern day platform in one convenient, connected location.
