Bachelor Pad in Upper Santa Cruz turns into a Private Home Theater and Smart Room


Home Theatre and Audio

Smart Security


Santa Cruz


When this particular client from Mumbai approached us he made it clear he wanted his room to be fully automated and have a very sleek private home theater system which would not overcrowd his room. This room was not ideal for dedicated movie watching and would be used as a mix for music listening with friends and watching movies or sporting events on the big screen. The finished product would be a fully automated man cave for the bachelor who would be making maximum use of it.
