The Brief

Our clients were looking to create a high quality family media room in a large former lounge in their home. The brief was a complete turn key solution to deliver and manage all works and to create a room that could serve both as a comfortable day to day TV lounge whilst also providing a high quality big screen movie experience when required.

The Design Solution

3D models were produced initially to demonstrate the concept of the design which involved lowering the ceiling to create lighting coffers and to provide void space for recessed electric curtain tracks, a concealed projector screen and projector lift which would delivery the big screen movie experience. Cabinetry was built between two structural supports to house a flush mounted 75″ Sony TV screen and B&W in wall speakers. Given the size of the amount of equipment needed an adjoining room was also fitted with bespoke cabinetry to discretely house the slide out AV rack

 

 

Works Overview

To deliver the room Finite Solutions managed the project end to end with engineers first fixing all lighting and AV cabling and our build team creating the suspended ceiling and applying the double acoustic board and green glue acoustic compound and plastering the room shell. Our joinery team then laid the new oak flooring and built the cabinetry on the media wall and the adjoining room to house the Av rack.

Upon completion of the room shell Finite Solutions engineers fitted all the audio visual equipment and light fittings and commissioned the room to ISF and THX standards for optimum performance.
