Home Theater and Media Room Design

What does it really take to design and build a Home Theater or Media Room?

Are you interested in building a powerful integrated entertainment system that seamlessly blends in with your interior architecture? When framing, wiring, doors, windows, TVs speakers, distributed audio equipment, wireless controls, finishes and furniture are to be harmoniously located in one multi-functional room or dedicated theater, having an experienced architect on your team to ask the right questions, develop the aesthetic design, and finish details in conjunction with the technical requirements for the interior architecture is a great value to you. At AKJ Architects, we've successfully worked on a variety of entertainment spaces in Seattle, Bellevue, and the Puget Sound area where planning, research, and collaboration with distributed audio professionals and other consultants has resulted in beautiful home theatre designs that feature the latest in technology.

These rooms may appear to be simple when you walk in; however, they are complex with regard to the wiring, equipment, and subcontractor coordination required for a clean, sleek looking design. Therefore, the time spent with you planning the millwork details, coordinating the wood studs for integrated wall speakers, identifying the framing needed for mounting the TV, locating the lighting, storing the local equipment as well as the remote equipment, sizing the motorized shades, specifying the acoustic walls and furniture, all benefit from the detailed drawing documentation and coordination an experienced architect can provide for the project team.

Home Theater Design services include:

  • Structural Framing and Equipment Coordination Drawings
  • Acoustic Wall Detailing for Sound Absorption
  • Motorized Shade & Interior Architecture Millwork Details
  • Integrating Equipment with Room Finishes
  • Placement and sizing of computer vaults in technology equipped "smart" homes
