While this room’s technically a home theater, the client wanted volume — concert-level volume. A 110dB peak, to be exact. Using a large, unused storage room in the middle of the house, this retrofit demanded sound isolation, a quiet AC system (designed by the integrator, Wavetrain Cinemas
), 3D video, and a design that belies the power that the audio system can provide.
French antique parquetry and velvet fabric wallpaper that can also be found in Buckingham Palace give a refined look to a room that can get pretty loud. That volume is achieved with the help of Pro Audio Technology digital active speakers, and a floating floor and custom doors keep that powerful sound isolated.
The equipment room at the rear of the theater also includes the main hub for the rest of the house, complete with automation controls. Wavetrain’s work took a Finalist nod in the 2016 CEDIA® Awards (Home Theater, Asia Pacific Division).
