Push a Button, Pick a Screen

With the press of a button, this living room transforms into a TV viewing area or a full-fledged home theater.

The owners of this traditional home wanted to create a cozy family room that could be used for everything from listening to music to reading books to watching TV or movies. So there would be a home theater system, but with one catch: All the technology had to be hidden.



The 15-by-20-foot space appears as a traditional sitting room, but press a button on the Crestron handheld remote, and the work of the home systems designers at Piscataway, NJ-based Electronics Design Group (EDG) appears. If casual TV viewing is on tap, artwork in the picture frame over the fireplace scrolls up to reveal a 42-inch NEC plasma screen. If more serious viewing is on the agenda, Lutron shades lower over the windows in the back of the room, a 92-inch Stewart Filmscreen screen descends from its hiding place in the crown molding above the fireplace, and a motorized door in the opposite crown molding opens for the Digital Projection DLP projector.
