This gorgeous Midtown high-rise has a spectacular view overlooking Manhattan. The client wanted a projection home theater in a room with large windows showcasing the view; that meant the quality of the electronics had to be complemented by a custom motorized shading system, so ambient light wouldn’t wash out the video display.
We started by installing the necessary equipment in the master bedroom’s closet, to keep it completely out of the way. We then added and programmed an MRF-350 infrared radio frequency extender so everything (including the home theater and the motorized shades) could be controlled by an MX-1200 universal remote control.
Shades also can be synced with each other or operate separately
Next, it was time for the shading. The client chose both the color of the stunning Lutron shades, and the ways in which they could be controlled: from a remote, a smartphone, or buttons located on the wall. We installed the motorized shading to run all the way along the entire length of the apartment – and built custom fasciae to match the look of the apartment, so the shades would appear seamless with no gaps or overlaps visible along the tops of the shades.
This project took four (4) days to complete, primarily because of the amount of custom fascia work required – but the client was thrilled with the new state-of-the-art home theater and motorized shading system which blends in perfectly with its upscale surroundings and leaves the fabulous view of Manhattan unobscured.
