Crescendo retrofit makes duplex the perfect fit - NYC

The new, 5,000-square foot Manhattan duplex was perfect in every way but one: its existing home entertainment technology simply did not meet the purchaser's high standards. So the new owner did exactly what he had done with his Southampton home a few years ago: he called in Crescendo Designs.

"Because of his experience working with us a few years ago, he knew that our team of designers and manufacturer-certified installers could give him the kind of home entertainment solution he was looking for-and that's exactly what we did," explains Chris Brody, President.

The resulting design features the latest in high-end audio and video equipment throughout the home, including Runco televisions with Focal speaker systems in the living room and master bedroom as well as a Runco Projector with drop down 92-inch screen, McIntosh Processing and Focal Surround System in the upstairs loft space-turned-home theater. It's all controlled by a Crestron audio and video distribution system and lighting control system. Just off the upstairs loft, there are outdoor speakers perfect for al fresco entertaining.

"What's so great about the audio system is that now the owner can listen to music from any source-iPod, music server, AM/FM radio or XM radio-from virtually anywhere in the two-floor apartment, even outdoors," he adds. Because the apartment was already finished, all of the wires for the system had to be retrofitted throughout the two floors to create the high-end entertainment space that perfectly fit the owner's vision.
