[MUSIC] The T V home is one element that always
presents design challenges. And I would say as an architect,
you know, our viewpoint's probably evolved a little bit. You
know, much like lighting, it's personal preference, and how users
tend to use it. And, you know My general viewpoint
is, if it's something that you do watch a lot
of tv and you're going to use it, I like
to make it where it's user friendly. Go ahead and
admit that it's a designed element and work around it.
In the Southern Living idea house, we've taken it, recognizing
that a tv generally is a dark object within a
room We've kind of designed around it in the sense
that we've created this larger hearth with blackened steel and
let the tv be a part of that composition. [MUSIC]
