Best Media Room (over £15,000)
Winner: Grahams Hi-Fi for The Pope’s House
The views from this beautiful home are stunning and the full length glass windows extend the room into the scenery beyond.
As a result, this installation called for the utmost respect to be paid to both the nature outside and strong design aesthetics within.
Grahams triumphed in achieving the brief. When the projector screen is stored, the room appears completely media free. Hardware is located in the main AV hub away from the bedroom itself. This allowed for the full integration of the bedroom on to the same system that controls the heating and ventilation, saving valued space in the room and achieves the absence of any visual impact from the technology.
As a bonus, the video feeds from the CCTV and front door cameras were added to the system which successfully delivers HDMI from both a Sky HD receiver and a Kaleidescape server. The silent motor in the screen and perfectly judged angle of the projector (stored in the dressing room to mask any noise) complete the project which the judges loved for its subtle blend of design and technology.
"A beautiful bedroom which doubles as a completely concealed media room - incredible integration. Every bedroom should be like this one!"
