    We used it purely for its aesthetic value and did not back it up with the insulation system for acoustics due the the low ceiling height and the thickness of the insulation system. Currently we are specifying an Alpro ceiling panel on another residential project .

    The effect looks great - and has to be easier to install and finish than Sheetrock I imagine. Thank you for your reply.

    We used a Fry Reglet acoustical wall panel (pattern B) and fastened it with exposed stainless steel screws and trim washers. It comes about 3 feet wide and lengths up to 12 feet. It is aluminum so heating ducts will not be an issue.

    This Ceiling treatment should be fine, but best to check with your architect. The best moisture resistant material for this ceiling type will be aluminum.

    Thank you for your question.

    If your referring to the blue lighted box , it is 220 gallon aquarium with a back panel of glass mosaic tile. The photo was taken before the aquarium was filled and fish added.

    The couch was completely custom to fit the space. The design was done by PDC and fabrication was completed by Mason Art in NYC. Mason Art also participated in the design process to balance function / proportion and budget. The sofa also pulls out to become a double size bed for guests. The fabric is by Sina Pearson. Please let us know if we can help you with a similar piece for your home.

    The Carpet is through Masland Carpets (Contract) and is available through your Architect or Interior Designer.

    All the wall panels are custom for this project. They have a plain slice maple veneer in a slip match pattern which was selected from a sustainable harvested tree at a veneer house. Then the veneer was sent to a panel manufacture to be placed on a composite wood substrate. Once that is completed it is sent off to the mill-worker to fabricate the actual panels from approved set of drawings by the Architect. All the veneers align form panel to panel as specified by the architect. To achieve these types of results it is highly recommended to have an architect involved who understands the complexities associated with this type of project.

    We where able to achieve a high end look with a very common spray coating. We used Rust-Oleum's Universal advanced formula HAMMERED all surface paint, color - Silver Hammered. This can be found at any big box home improvement center.

Covering walls with maple-veneered plywood can both warm and lighten basement rooms. Many different grades of plywood are available, so be sure to specify Grade A for the outward-facing side, which means the maple veneer applied to the fabricated core is free of visible defects.

To light the space, Conroy opened the stairwell to the rest of the house and placed skylights overhead. Recessed can lights fill in, and the aquarium also has the feel of natural daylight.
