Best Media Room

Level II

  |  EMEA

Spring Ponds

by Prestige Audio

This media room is located in the basement of an 850sq.m new build property, alongside a wine tasting room, games room, and utility area. With the client having a love of music and an appreciation for good sound quality, getting the audio right was extremely important.

All the AV had to be hidden, so the integrator designed everything from scratch to allow them to integrate the speakers fully into the fabric of the room, without compromising on performance. With the client planning to use the room for both movies and music and wanting a very punchy, strong bass presence in playback, Prestige Audio installed a Dolby Atmos surround sound system in a 7.1.4 configuration.

The original design for the cinema included fixtures and fittings made from white marble. Prestige Audio persuaded the client that not only would the room look better with a darker design, but that it would allow the room to perform better. Time was spent with the client and the team came up with a ‘moodier’ classic cinema room aesthetic. Prestige Audio also replaced the requested ‘clean-white’ ceiling that would create reflective issues with a starscape ceiling and acoustic treatments to alleviate this issue.

The client commented: “Our integrator designed a bespoke cinema that would meet our needs. They worked well with our interior designer to deliver something that would perform well and met our design needs. Now that we have moved in, the results are impressive. Our cinema is epic and outperforms our expectations.”
