Service in a Tight Squeeze: The client wanted to feature his equipment as a focal point of the home, but did not want the equipment located in the theater room, so we put it in the ante room. But the ante room is just wide enough for the three racks.

Very narrow spot MR-16 light fixtures were installed (dimmed via the Lutron Homeworks system) to highlight each column of equipment with a narrow shaft of light.
