The Cavern

A home cinema considered “outstanding and beyond expectations.”

  • Best Home Cinema
  • Level 2

The property is a period mansion (circa 1750s) built primarily of stone. The Pyramid Group was brought in to install a new cinema that would replace a previous basement cinema that had become old and outdated. Thanks to a visit to the integrator’s showroom, the design and technology requirements were very clear.

The design is a unique environment of faceted panels, excellent acoustics, and image quality, as well as custom lighting and furniture. The layout of the room presented a few challenges including speaker placement, as the position of the door and height restraints between the ceiling and seating meant that they couldn’t be placed in the usual position. The Pyramid Group overcame these issues to deliver an immersive experience, while still always considering the interior design. Working with a contractor, the integrator was able to provide custom speaker grills to match the décor finish.

The finished cinema is a huge success, with the client referring to the experience as “outstanding and beyond expectations.”
