For some reason it makes me think of the apartments in Coruscant.
Is it just me or do home theater posts always bring out the most criticism in this sub?
Do you have any info on those love seats? Thanks
I love it! it's,like, "Star Trek: The Next Generation" chic
And a skylight to get the authentic home theater screen glare XD
I'd love to see how this looks at night!
This looks great, however it has some practicality problems.
First, there is no seating in the optical or acoustic center of the room. The viewer will be looking at the screen from an angle and will be much closer to one speaker than the other. When there is a second viewer, that person will be even further off center or on the other side of the room. I’d rather have one couch in the center than two off-center couches.
Second, the drop-down screen isn’t really necessary. Are people going to sit on those couches and stare at a blank wall instead? I’d rather have a cheaper, high quality fixed screen instead.
Overall very well executed but just not as practical as it could be.
EDIT: Yes having the gap between the couches makes it easier to walk without stooping over. Personally, I'd rather stoop for a second and enjoy my 2 hour movie from the proper perspective.
EDIT 2: Wow, so many people saying this is an example of how this sub is overly critical. I said at the beginning and the end that this was well-executed. I simply said I prefer to sit in front of my TV rather than an angle. I think that is a reasonable criticism for a function-specific room like this.
Nice setup! Having had a few lofts that went unused save for storage after the novelty wore off, let me add to the list: “all the summertime heat you can loathe”.
Hey /u/kierdavis, I appreciate your posting this onto reddit for us to see. I hope the other commenters haven't turned you off from sharing future work. I get how client work can be frustrating sometimes, and it's baffling how some commenters think you can strongarm a client into doing something logical. There are simply some cases where you do what you must to get paid and have a positive experience with a client.
Keep it up, and ignore the haters.
For what it’s worth, I love it! Whose ever home it is, is very lucky!
I really hope you keep sharing your work because this is great even if it's not exactly optimal or how some others would have done it. It's a cool looking space regardless.
