Cineluxe Trendsetters: Al Patel & Cortney Combs
Based in Port Chester, NY, Enhanced Home serves both the spacious luxury homes surrounding New York City in Westchester County, Connecticut, and the Hamptons, and upscale but space-limited residences in the New York metro area—a challenge that has led to the company becoming equally adept at creating both dedicated home theaters and high-performance multiuse/media rooms.
This versatility is reflected in company principal Alpesh Patel’s new Westchester home, which he also uses as a showcase for Enhanced Home’s work. The sprawling residence features both a traditional dedicated theater and a variety of multiuse entertainment spaces, including a gym with a Steinway Lyngdorf audio system, a kitchen with James speakers and Samsung’s The Frame TV, and an elaborate outdoor entertainment system.
In the interview above, sales & marketing director Cortney Combs joins Patel to talk about the rising demand for high-performance media rooms and outdoor systems, the curious launch of 8K, the increasing interest in smart tech among architects and interior designers, and the promise of art walls.
