Working closely with the end client’s interior designer and main contractor we were briefed to design and install a dedicated home cinema in this new build property in Kent. The brief was to create a home cinema that could be enjoyed and easily controlled by the whole family, including junior school aged children and teenagers. As well as watching films, the family wished to be able to play games consoles through the system.

Home Cinema Installation
The home cinema in this new build arts & crafts style property combines traditional design references with contemporary detailing specified by SGS Design. The cinema is located in the basement of this magnificent property along with the games room, gym, wine cellar, pool and Nanny’s suite.
As a new build property, the space was purpose built for the home cinema. Built as a reference level Dolby Atmos cinema the installation incorporates Artcoustic Loudspeakers for 7.2.4 surround sound.
There are two levels of luxurious cinema seating allowing for 6 people to watch movies in comfort. A Denon AVR, OPPO Blu-ray player, 120” Screen Excellence screen and a 4k Sony projector form part of the installation. Finally, Savant is used to control the projector and audio via one remote and easy to use app.
Storage of AV equipment, DVDs and a drinks chiller was achieved through the installation of bespoke joinery, also by Circle Automation. Exceptional acoustic quality within the room was created by the installation of fabric panelling on the walls. A deep silk carpet helps to create further warmth, comfort and acoustic quality.
Lighting is also an integral part of this installation. Added depth is achieved through the use of a coiffured ceiling with LED lighting. The client’s artwork and sparkly wallpaper are also highlighted through washing light onto the walls through the positioning of in-ceiling spot lights. Along with the rest of the system, the lights are controlled via Savant, both with a keypad on the wall, the remote control and app.
