Congratulations to all the winners! AT: Home Tech would like to thank all of the entrants for stepping up and sharing their inspired tech setups - your creativity and design skills will help many of us with our own tech solutions. We'd also like to thank the readers for choosing our six finalists and the judges for choosing our three winners.
Quotes from the Judges on Kelly and Gregory's entry:
Ryan:"I like this setup because of the seamless integration of the technology into the space. You only see what you need to, yet there is still easy access to all the equipment."
Mark:"The hidden media components behind speaker cloth is fantastic, another idea I think will "borrow"."
Kelly:"This design wowed us all, and offers a creative solution to hiding media."
Kate:"Kelly & Gregory's setup is beautiful, like the entire place. I love how streamlined everything is. "
The rest of the winning lineup is below the jump...
Quotes from the judges on Joel's entry:
Kate:"Joel focused on what he really wanted out of a system and worked it--I can image this system makes their parties even more fun in this great place! Also, Joel's masterpiece is accessible, something our readers could (relatively) easily do in their own place. "
Kelly:"Not only did he create a well-designed media center, he chose technology that was small, efficient and worked for his needs. He is the only instance where the computer is used as a home media machine."
Mark:"Simple and clean. I like the use of the mac mini as a media center."
Quotes from the judges on Rene's entry:
Ryan: "I like the way the TV hangs on the wall like a piece of art. The lack of equipment or furniture dedicated to A/V storage in the immediate vicinity of the TV really helps achieve this feeling. The fact that all of the equipment is stored invisibly in a closet really shows the thought and effort that went into creating this space."
Kate: "Rene was really smart to located everything in the closet, freeing up any need for a media cabinet under the TV, which allows the TV to shine. I also love that their next project is to automate their shades and lighting so there's one-touch movie-viewing setup. "
