AWARD: Custom Home of the Year between $50,000 – $150,000 (total technology cost)
Built by custom home builder, Tree Haven Homes and featured in the 2016 Salt Lake Parade of Homes
, this beautiful new home in Bluffdale, Utah features Savant high-end smart home control & entertainment technology including over 100 speakers—indoors and out—for 25 zones of high-resolution home audio, 4K Ultra HD video distribution for 12 TVs, smart lighting and climate control, commercial-grade WiFi, outdoor landscape speakers with buried subwoofers, a custom home theater with 4K projection, Dolby Atmos surround sound, and bespoke fiber optic star ceiling, and full surveillance and security system. The home has 3 additional surround sound systems—aside from the theatre—including one outside on the rear deck.
AWARD: Home Theater/Media Room Project of the Year up to $50,000
The StarLight Theatre, featured in the same award-winning home, is an open-concept design with the rear being open to the home’s other entertainment areas. A custom-built 132” edgeless, ambient light rejecting screen displays stunning images from the Sony 4K projector—even with the lights on—making this a perfect room for big game parties. The screen is also acoustically transparent, concealing the front speakers as well as the subwoofer. Dolby Atmos surround sound from 11 Paradigm speakers and a subwoofer create a truly immersive audio experience. The theatre gets its name from the bespoke fiber optic ceiling made from over 3 miles of fiber optic filament—with each star hand-placed into the sheet rock during construction. A custom-painted mural completes the ceiling.
