Unbelievable Home Cinema in Greece

Friday, April 05, 2013

What do you get when you combine a visionary client, a leader in home theater design, the latest home cinema technology, and an army of craftsman and artists?  Well, we are about to find out as we watch the progress on an amazing home theater installation going on now on the Peloponnese peninsula in Greece.  Theo Kalomirakis, is largely credited for creating the home theater, and his work on this project illustrates why he has garnered respect from the AV industry, design community, and clients alike. 

The theater is inspired by the Basicilia of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, an imposing edifice demonstrating engineering sophistication beyond its day.  The scaled down design includes marble columns, hand-carved marble capitals, hand-painted frescos by Inga Belozerova and Louis Triverio.  The general contractor, Teknamat, and the AV integrator, Yiannis Roubessis of Home & Yachts Private Theaters, is working alongside these artists and craftspeople to deliver an impressive cinema experience, featuring a Runco Signature Cinema™ SC-50d projector.

The entire project has been several years in the making and you can track the final progress of the theater at Theo’s blog.
