Mountain View | Home Theater
An abstract approach to this Silicon Valley home theaters acoustics.

We cherish the projects that truly push our creativity to the highest levels. It's in these projects where we lean on our CAD, CNC and fabrication backgrounds to provide the ultimate acoustic solutions for the most demanding of clients.  This installation was unique in that our client gave us full creative freedom with just reference photos of the house and the specs and dimensions of the home theater. Challenge Accepted. Given the ultra high tech, modern and minimal design of this brand new Silicon Valley home we were excited to hit the drawing board.

We presented the client with a few renderings but one in particular stood out to all of us.

 

This concept was abstract in design and by utilizing our acoustically transparent fabric we were able fully hide all the in-wall  speakers surrounding the main listening positions.  We drew our inspirations for them the mountains in the area and spotlights from the iconic 20th Century Fox opening logo animation.

 

We nailed it and it was hard to tell who was more excited to start the install, the client or our team at Acoustic Images.
