The “comfort” project

by Bruno Cardinal

The challenge: to create a basement home theatre room with a large-format screen that’s on the cutting-edge of technology.

The solutions: to avoid having noise coming from a large air conditioning unit located close by from being introduced into the home theatre room, we’ve pulled out all the stops; just like in a recording studio, we’ve constructed a floating room in order to completely isolate and decouple the walls and the ceiling from the rest of the house! To guarantee a high-quality large format image, a high definition projector was installed in the drop ceiling. A two-level floor ensures excellent visibility for all listeners. The electronics were brought all together in a swivelling cabinet that allows easy access to the rear of the equipment.

The result: a comfortable home theatre room, powerful sound, a spectacular image and a satisfied family.

Total budget: $60,000
