Bowman Living

The driving impetus for this Tarrytown residence was centered around creating a green and sustainable home. The owner-Architect collaboration was unique for this project in that the client was also the builder with a keen desire to incorporate LEED-centric principles to the design process. The original home on the lot was deconstructed piece by piece, with 95% of the materials either reused or reclaimed. The home is designed around the existing trees with the challenge of expanding the views, yet creating privacy from the street. The plan pivots around a central open living core that opens to the more private south corner of the lot. The glazing is maximized but restrained to control heat gain. The residence incorporates numerous features like a 5,000-gallon rainwater collection system, shading features, energy-efficient systems, spray-foam insulation and a material palette that helped the project achieve a five-star rating with the Austin Energy Green Building program.

Hi, love the look here. Where are the gadgets that go with the tv (dvd player, cable box, etc) kept?

So I have had the AV closet built but have no idea how to design the shelving etc for the components. The electronics cabinet is mounted on the wall at picture height. I assume there needs to be as much air circulation as possible for the shelves below. But do the shelves need to be open wired type for air or is just a flat wood shelf OK?

We have a smart home system planned for our new build. All smart home components will be located in a large tower in the basement storage room. The tower shelves are solid as are the sides, the front and back are open and each shelf is about a foot apart. Most items dvd, satelite, stereo, alarm, etc are about 4" tall leaving a good 8" of air space per shelf. The tower is 8' tall. The company that is doing our install wouldn't put the components in a closed closet due to the lack of circulation and potential over heating. I'd consult the pro's on this, your investing alot of money to create this wireless masterpeice.

Cheers :)

Who is the maker of this fireplace (the fire box itself)? - Is that a just custom built shelf below the fireplace or is it also functional cabinetry? Thank you!
