    UNUSUAL ORNAMENTAL FABRICATION

    With the push of a button, the bottom two tiers rise to reveal...

    …the TV.  You saw that coming, right?

    The architect was inspired by African primitive art when he designed this project to conceal a widescreen television.  This metal is in four tiers, each with a smaller radius than the one above.

    There were two major challenges: Space and Sound

    With the stone surrounding, there was no fudge-room outside the panels, little clearance between the metal and electronics, and a tiny closet above to contain the hoist.  We had to create a wall-sized structure that appears irregular, but which is engineered, built and installed to close tolerances.

    Once things were installed, they had to be quiet.  In addition to using a special motor, mounting blocks, and insulation, we used precisely machined tracks & bearings and ensured that the ornamental panels—though suspended with copper wire—would not rattle when in motion.
