Ultimate ManRoom Showcase: The Shiner Theater By AcousticSmart

Shiner Picture 8Sometimes we get distracted from our original purpose. During our journeys we encounter many obstacles and detours, sometimes forgetting our original mission. This is definitely point and case with TMRzoo.com.

For the past two years we have been so busy building a new brand that we had forgotten what the TMR in TMRzoo stood for.

TMR stands for The Man Room, the original men’s home entertainment site as envisioned and brought to life back in 2002. TheManRoom.com focused on that special part of a man’s abode that he calls his own, such as a den or a basement, and all forms of entertainment that a guy can enjoy in it… anything from sports, beer and movies to video games, babes and gear.

So in getting back to our roots we will be bringing you our readers into the coolest and most unique Man Rooms, Man Caves and Man Towns ever designed.

This week we would like to introduce you to “The Shiner Theater”. This project was built and designed by AcousticSmart out of Merrick, N.Y.

Richard Charschan and crew built this project in a room that is only an amazing 13′ wide which was a major hurdle to overcome. Here is their run down of the project.

From Acousticsmart : “No matter how unique, every project begins with the combined imagination of AcousticSmart’s team of dedicated Home theatre Design professionals along with the A/V dealer and client. With all of these raw creative forces at work, AcousticSmart set out to satisfy the clients every desire and it all began with an empty room and a blank piece of paper. Carefully crafted hand drawings and 3D virtual perspectives were meticulously labored over as we began to formulate the project.

Once everyone had played their part, we’re ready to get to work. Our final plans accounted for every detail of the room: Sight lines, seating, color texture, AV System, carpet, finishes and our clients every desire. Our staff then went to work handling every detail of the room’s acoustical and interior development. This home is actually over 100 years old and protected by the Historic preservation society. Everything we incorporated had to match the original style and grandeur of the home.

Once we began construction we came across a hidden room which was incorporated into the design and turned into a wine cellar. The AV specialist can rest easy that He/She must only concentrate on their AV system, electric and its installation, while AcousticSmart makes the room look and sound beautiful. Communication with everyone on the job site, our staff makes certain that every minute issue is handled with care. At last, the room is complete! Having begun with nothing more than an empty room and a blank piece of paper, the client now finds themselves immersed in the most beautiful room in the house. The perfect escape from everyday stress, the family gathers in their Home theatre for their favorite movies, games or sporting events Acoustic Smart: Smart Design, Smart Decision.”
