We had one of "these" rooms in our basement:

We had a couple weeks between projects, so rather ambitiously decided to do a themed-buildout of it in the style of the Continental Hotel armory from John Wick 3. My partner Mike is a huge fan of the films, so he offered to help out and we got to work.

As usual, Mike began by scouring reference images and photogrammetry sources and began modeling and working up a CAD blueprint - though he had to get through this stage VERY quickly due to the time constraints.

While we weren't doing a recreation, per se, (the original room is much bigger with a high ceiling) we still wanted to get some of the iconic details right - like the floor, the decorative columns which anchor the room, and the big gun wall. We also duplicated design elements like the large black safes, Chesterfield couch, and appropriately ornate ceiling, crown moulding, and embossed wallpaper.


Beginning to frame and drywall/MDF:

For the ceiling tiles we used simple, off-the-shelf styrene panels, painted black and ultimately faux'd with copper paint. We also ran low-voltage, cool, dimmable LED fixtures through a few of them.

For the lower-ceiling entry area, we used a slightly different pattern.

It was a family affair -both my boys and my wife chipped in, as did Mike's wife Laura Beth.

The room gets a coat of teal paint for a base under the final green:

The floor was extremely difficult to get right as -like the original film set - it was printed. We used floor vinyl, laminated with a robust, dimensionally-stable exterior laminate.

Starting the green paint and installation of the safes:

WICK_ROOM_23.jpg



The film features large Rorschach-like paintings on the walls, so I had each of my two boys do their own, which Mike colorized and printed on vinyl:

Working on the gun circle:

WICK_ROOM_25.jpg



Stacy begins faux painting the gold accents on the columns and other surfaces:

More faux painting:

Pool table arrives and we add wall treatments to the side cabinets:

Next up will be some gold accents on the safes, a brass cover for the A/C unit, and details on the large vault door at the end of the room.
