The location of this house, in the heart of a bustling resort town, demanded that special attention be paid to acoustics. The walls are built with insulated concrete forms: a wall assembly nearly 20 inches thick, comprised of a poured concrete core, continuous from footing to roof, wrapped in insulating foam and topped with cedar planks. These walls provide excellent thermal insulation and an extremely low sound transmission, even in the galley kitchen.
It may not be big, but it's luxurious. This home theater has comfy leather seating and a large media console to house all the equipment for the ultimate viewing experience. A patterned floor adds depth to the small room, acoustic panels on the wall helps enhance the sound experience.
Designers at Kelly & Co. Design describe this renovated barn as "such a special space" for guests to relax and enjoy live performances. The design team was able to wire the barn for live music performances by re-framing the entire space with acoustic sound panels. For TV viewing, a large TV was hidden in the ceiling and can be lowered by remote control.
This theater is the largest of the four screens with seating for 170 people.The perforated metal screens on the walls provide the required acoustics for watching movies and the faux walnut panels on the ceiling create an elegant coffered design.
