Cinema Overview

A simple clean design, utilising different acoustic fabrics to create a sleek and distinct wall pattern. The perfect example of how through simple techniques a beautiful room is created. Not only does the wall design serve an aesthetic purpose, but it also ensures the acoustic experience of the room is unmatched. The use of curtain softens the room and aids in giving the space an inviting and homely feel.

Project Details

The cinema was designed for the director of a custom installation company as a live in display home. Their strength was security & home automation, so we were engaged to ensure the cinema was a true reference system. As a specialist cinema engineering company, we were more than pleased to assist.


The cinema space was already allocated in the home design. Once the sound isolation system was deducted from the inside of the concrete shell, the room proportions delivered a good frequency response. The only initial issue with the room was the lack of ceiling height. The slab above the cinema was not level and provided as little as 25mm above the ceiling, which made mounting lights in critical positions difficult. The goal was a simple design, with function the main priority.

Project Features

  • Cinema designed as a live-in display home for a custom installation company director.
  • Emphasized security and home automation, creating a reference-level cinema.
  • Room’s proportions provided good frequency response after sound isolation.
  • Challenge of limited ceiling height addressed for functional design.
  • Provided exceptional audio/video system and managed entire cinema project.
  • Detailed construction plans for sound isolation, custom HVAC, and security features.
  • Integrated biometric access and magnetic lock for secure entry.
  • Impeccable execution results in a true reference system in every aspect.

As well as providing a remarkable audio/video system, we also project managed the cinema, and joinery and created the interior design concept. The detailed construction drawings provided include sound isolation details, air conditioning design including custom attenuators and plenums built into the structure to reduce rattles, custom bass traps & baffles, ventilated hush box design and sound isolated door design.


There is a biometric thumb print reader to activate a motorised cinema door and magnetic lock and on the inside of the cinema is a button to open the door, with a mechanical override.


Every element of the design is executed perfectly. This is a true reference system in every sense of the word
