In both design and technology, this bachelor pad is the essence
With a six-month window for design, pre-wire, installation and programming, this was by far the quickest construction project DSI Entertainment Systems had ever been involved in.
With the goal being to create the “ultimate bachelor pad” that would include a theater, full automation, a gaming room, and audio/video distribution in every room, the company had their work cut out for them.
“Our challenge was to use unique products that you do not see in a typical installation, such as Sonance Architectural Series speakers and Vantage Axolute stainless-steel lighting keypads,” says DSI. “No expense was spared to achieve the unique visual look our client was searching for.”
The home incorporates a fully integrated Crestron system that controls 20 zones of audio, pool and spa, a Vantage lighting system, 12 zones of HVAC, waterfalls, fountains, two motorized TV lifts, 12 zones of distributed video, two surround systems, a full 2.35 scope home theater, CCTV systems, access control, and a full security system. This was also the first project on which DSI implemented its award-winning new touchscreen interface.
This house was designed as a party house, and needed to transform into an event space with the touch of a button. This included integrating a DJ feed into all rooms of the house and a “roving” handheld HD cam on all the video displays.
Two Macs display digital art on the master bedroom and family-room flat panels when they are not in use. DSI even customized a lift that propels a 60-inch flat-panel out of the family-room floor.
