2 Private Theater Room Design Workshops Scheduled for AIA/ ASID Members

The Home Theater Design Essentials Workshops are an industry outreach initiative provided by Paradise Theater , Fortress Seating , Kinetics Noise Control and BASWA Acoustics .

Paradise Theater, a provider of high end residential home theater design services, has scheduled 2 upcoming Home Theater Design Essentials Workshops held in conjunction with rep firm Hill Residential Systems. The first event, serving the greater Philadelphia region, will be held at the Lutron Experience Center in Coopersburg, PA on Tuesday Sept 15, 2009. The second event, serving the greater Baltimore region, will be held at the Hill Residential facilities in Columbia, MD on Wednesday Sept 16, 2009.


The Home Theater Design Essentials Workshops are an industry outreach initiative provided by Paradise Theater , Fortress Seating , Kinetics Noise Control and BASWA Acoustics . The four companies have joined forces to provide a best of breed outreach initiative for Architects and Designers. These are the latest activities for the group in their industry outreach efforts to help build closer working relationships between architects, interior designers, builders and electronic system integrators. Both upcoming events are focused on educating industry partners on available technologies for new / existing homes.

"We find ourselves in a unique situation at Paradise Theater. We coordinate our design work with architects, interior designers, builders and electronic system integrators," said Sam Cavitt, President of Paradise Theater. "Our goal is to provide insight to our partners in the design process so we can all understand what is possible. If our clientele is unclear on what is possible or why it is desirable we may never have the opportunity to do our best work. These workshops will help all the members of the design team understand this and how to achieve these results".

The workshop events include the presentation of the acclaimed course 'Home Theater Design Essentials For The Trade', which provides a powerful new perspective for trade partners on Private Theaters and essential elements, process, and best practices for team collaboration during their planning and construction. The 'Essentials' course is designed and delivered by former CEDIA Instructor of the Year, Sam Cavitt. A second course, "Introduction to Residential Lighting Control" will be delivered by a representative from Lutron. Both courses have been approved for CEU for AIA and ASID.

Sponsoring at the local level along with Hill Residential Systems are Lutron, Digital Projection and AMX.
