The room required a door and link to the main house to be created and the room was then stud framed with a floating construction not touching the perimeter walls or ceiling and duel layer of ply, green glue sandwich and plasterboard applied to all surfaces with all gaps filled with rockwool to soundproof the room.
The main walls were paint finished and the recessed arches and rear wall panelling was filled with Vicoustic VMT absorption panels and then covered in a plush suede material using a tensioned track system.
A star scape ceiling track system was used to create the twinkling star effect and LED lighting was used to create a ceiling coffer, under staging LED strips and a halo effect around the screen.
All equipment is hidden from viewing in temperature controlled cabinetry directly under the screen
