Multi-function home cinema in Southampton

THE BRIEF:

These talented interior designers from Southampton wanted a home cinema and multi-room audio throughout their house without affecting the stylish design of the property. Discretion was key for the multi-room audio speakers, and we were asked for high quality cinema components to impress their audiophile friends.

WHAT WE DID:

Multi Functional Home Cinema, lighting and Multi Room Audio

THE EQUIPMENT:

  • Oppo Blu-ray player
  • Yamaha receiver
  • 65’’ Samsung smart TV
  • Sonance architectural speakers
  • Control4 multi-room AV system
  • Mode controlled lighting

THE OUTCOME:

We decided to use the Sonance architectural speaker series, as these are flush in-ceiling speakers with a grille width of only 3.5cm. We ended up using the client’s existing speakers for the home cinema set-up and added controlled scene lighting to really show off the fantastic design of the house, particularly when entertaining. The clients were so impressed with our work we have ended up working with them on several of their own interior design projects, implementing stylish technologies into the properties.
