Automated Art & Concealed TV

Accompanied by 20 zones of distributed audio, 13 zones of video (9 of which are from central distribution), a home theater, entertainment room and bar, all intuitively controlled throughout this gorgeous home with Savant, as well as automated lighting and shades by Lutron, we then put a cherry on the top by recessing and concealing a 65” 4k TV above the fireplace in the living room, hidden behind split panel art.

Taking it a step further, built to match the width and aesthetics of the display, we had a custom sound bar made by Leon, flush mounted with the TV below, marrying the two. Integrating sound bars is a great way to enhance and provide substantial voice and sound reproduction which is not possible with built-in TV speakers, providing directed sound from the display creating a realistic viewing experience.

When the TV is turned on, the panels split and slide to either side with the help of Future Automation, revealing the display and sound bar. When turned off, they slide back together creating a piece of art, completely hiding the TV and automation equipment within the enclosed frame.

SAV thoughtfully used leading-edge electronics for this home theater; A 4k projector accompanied by a 105” fixed acoustically transparent screen, an in-wall 7.2 surround sound system hidden behind professionally designed and engineered acoustic panels, advanced electronic power, energy and thermal management, the latest in automated lighting, climate, and audio/video control, and last but not least black leather, automated incline, theater-style seating with ratcheting headrests.

Hidden Magic

In addition to the architecture and interior design, the cutting-edge digital component of the home contributed to its winning status—many amenities are invisible when you enter the home, which helps create the home’s tranquility. SAV worked with WRJ Design from the beginning of this project to provide lighting control, automated window treatments and AV throughout the home, amongst more.

“This home took dedication and devotion to precision at every level from the entire team. Working with the iconic vision of WRJ on this project was a delight for us. We have become adept at weaving technology into homes while retaining design aesthetics, the marriage of the two, and that’s where technology and design align to maximize efficiency, convenience, and enhanced levels of comfort for our clients.” – Cory Reistad, SAV Digital Environments

Cory shares a behind-the-scenes look at technological components in the home:

Flush details: To eliminate bulky components and preserve the aesthetics of the home, such as wall outlets and switches, SAV used a trimless and flush mounting solution throughout for wiring devices and automated controls such as lighting and shades.

Automated shades & drapes: Electronically controlled and hidden within pockets, or recessed into the window casement when up, SAV integrated shading solutions that a create a seamless appearance throughout as well as automated drapery that opens and closes with a simple push of a button.

Invisible speakers: SAV installed invisible speakers in the walls and then finished over them with the surrounding surface to deliver ambient music that emanates throughout the space with no visual footprint. It’s almost as if the walls become the speakers themselves.

Lighting control: SAV knows that lighting has a significant impact on not only the aesthetics of any given space, but the occupants as well. In order to achieve enhanced levels of comfort, they added high-performance lighting and control throughout the home for smooth and continuous dimming. Not only does this approach save energy, it helps maintain a visual quality for the occupants without compromising the building’s electrical infrastructure.
