Cinema/Games Room


The client’s brief was based around the transformation of an unfinished room into a more family-orientated entertainment and games room.

The client wanted the full cinema experience, with surround sound capabilities for watching films and playing games. With this in mind an acoustically transparent screen was selected so the main front speaker sound stage could be housed behind the screen as you would experience in a commercial cinema. With the open-plan nature of the room just two in-ceiling speakers were included for rear surround effects, and a single subwoofer completed the 5.1 configuration.

The client already had Control4 installed throughout the rest of his home, and this was extened into the new entertainment room to control the music and film playback across the cinema and bar/games areas. All the lighting circuits in the room were also connected into the Control4 system, and preset scenes were created depending on how the room wanted to be used.
