How They Did It: Wandsworth Home Cinema

Apr 05, 2018

This young family wanted a dual-use home cinema to be enjoyed for family movie nights, as well as by the client and his friends for big rugby matches. It was important to the client to maximize the floor space, to have an optimal viewing and listening experience for everyone in the room, and to be able to upgrade the space in the future.

Philharmonic AV
knew their first challenge would be to find a flush in-wall speaker system that would not require the walls to be built out, thus taking up desirable floor space. As a result, they specified Artcoustic speakers paired with KEF subwoofers for a slim profile solution. Next up was finding a screen, which needed to deliver an exceptional picture, fit the space, and still be considered large enough by the client’s standards. The solution became a 110” acoustically transparent Screen Research model, paired with a Sony VW300ES projector.

Knowing the client’s desire to have a space that could evolve with technology advances, Philharmonic AV designed a system with the ability to accept local sources so that updates could easily be made, as well as a future provision for Dolby Atmos. Finally, knowing that children and guests would be using the system, the integrator opted for a Control4 SR-250 handheld remote which feels familiar to most people.
