"We are so pleased to be recognized for our work by one of the most respected publishers in our field," said Avista owner Matt Bridges. "It's an honor to be the only SC-based firm selected among entries received in 11 different categories. And just as important, we're glad we developed an end product that exceeded our clients' expectations."
Featured in the May-June 2012 issue of Electronic House, the Avista project was a redesign of a do-it-yourself home theater that had been installed by the client's previous homeowner. According to Bridges, the room required quite a bit of construction and design work to create a more attractive and functional space.
"The original screen wall had two windows that had been covered with construction paper. There was a faux wall on top of the sheetrock, and the speakers were sitting on top of homemade built-in cabinets. To make matters worse, the projector was hanging down from a huge telescopic pole nearly five feet from the ceiling," Bridges explained.
With the help of carpenter Chris Truett and interior designer Ashley Petty, Avista created a spectacular new space with custom cabinets, dramatic carpet, custom acoustic panels and window coverings to create a professional look. Bridges reworked the electronic equipment to incorporate a JVC projector, THX Ultra II Plus Klipsch speakers and subwoofers along with a URC MX-6000 remote control and MSC-400 processor to control the new system. Bridges said the results were a relaxed family space where the clients could enjoy an evening playing video games or watching their favorite movie and experience a much improved video and sound experience.
