CEDIA’s Technology Meets Design award honors the best integration of technology that complements the design scheme for the room or home. The judges look for projects that show a successful working partnership with the integrator and design and build industry partners.

Those judges are drawn from some of the finest architecture and interior design firms in the business.

As we mentioned in the description of this project as the winner of for Best Home Cinema, Level III, Wavetrain worked hand-in-hand with the design and build firms to make sure that the client’s vision was achieved. This included a bar and arcade area that features the homeowner’s favorite games — not to mention libations.

There were challenges here: This was an existing two-car garage under the client’s house that was transformed into a reference-quality, dedicated cinema. The space had to remain accessible from the street.

One of the more elegant solutions here is the camouflaged, yet easily accessible equipment rack. Although it’s in a part of the installation that can get fairly warm, the design of the cabinet keeps all the gear at the perfect temperature.
