A few months ago I shot a job for Engineered Custom Systems, a custom audio and video installation and design firm based in Redondo. My job was to document ECS’ work throughout a 10,000 square foot home in Rolling hills. ECS installed all of the audio, video and custom control features in the house. There’s nothing like being able to walk into any part of the home and control the lighting and audio with a touch of the button. In addition to a media room with five flat screens the home also has an outdoor spa area with a TV, golf simulator, wine storage room, poker room and speakers installed both inside the pool and above-ground to insure that you can always hear your favorite song when you’re swimming.
In our pre-production meetings we discussed how best to show the quality of ECS’ work. Many of the custom features don’t read well in a still photo but I think that conveys the quality of the work and craftsmanship. The speakers aren’t supposed to be the focal point in the living room and when people overlook the install because the speaker grills have been painted to match the ceiling they know they will receive a high level of service when they work with ECS. Interior designers especially love the fact that with the help of ECS they don’t have to worry about the audio or visual installation taking away from the decor.
