Project Summary

This beautiful sunken bowling alley is several steps lower than the rest of the basement to create a separate private area. The homeowner's monogram is manufactured into the approach on both lanes. Fabric-wrapped panels along the side walls absorb echo, which makes the room feel even more pleasant in person. The back curtain wall above the pins has a giant 11'6" wide video projection screen. Up front, the house balls and shoes are stored in built-in shelving and cubbie holes. Bowlers relax on custom curved banquette seating.
