Inspiration: Rotating Home Theater

Inspiration: Rotating Home Theater

Super complicated execution of a basic concept. When a homeowner didn't want to dedicate a small space solely to movie watching, the designer, Donny Hacket, gave them a rotating floor that lets the room be home theater one minute, and revolves to create a more comfortable living room atmosphere.

Unfortunately, they don't show any photos of the living room setup, and we are pretty sure just turning around a bunch of theater seats isn't going to cut it when trying to create an inviting space. The room itself looks pretty sterile, which is great when your attention is focused on a screen, but not so much when you're using it for other purposes.

But the premise is great, one room with two functions. One that apartment dwellers have been dealing with for a long time. How do you create a theater atmosphere in your living room? We bet you have a ton of easy, inexpensive ideas that don't involve a revolving floor.

Check out a video of it's elaborate construction, which strangely doesn't include any shots of the finished product in action.
