Mandeville Home Theater

We didn’t let a 30-feet steel beam on the ceiling or the asymmetrical shape of the room stand in our way from designing a breathtaking home theater. Instead, we fashioned these obstacles into unique design elements, creating a spectacular, one-of-a-kind ceiling that serves as the room’s focal point.
