Best Media Room (over £15,000)
Winner: Smart Business SL for All in One
A cleverly designed space where the owners can relax and enjoy themselves in a multitude of ways: watching movies, playing video games, karaoke, guitar playing or hosting a party.
The judges saw this project as "a truly multipurpose room" and were particularly impressed by the sound quality and the lighting. At first glance, the room appears ordinary. However, pressing a button on the AMX touch panel can make a motorised screen emerge from a cupboard or the doors open on the TV cabinet.
To meet all the owner's requirements, Smart Business implemented two separate audio systems, comprising a 5.1 home cinema system, alongside Bowers & Wilkins speakers for playing the guitar or karaoke.
The room also serves as an ideal party venue, taking advantage of the whole sound system. Disco lights, strobes, lasers and a mirror-ball have also been fitted to enhance the mood. The area is sound-proofed to avoid disturbing the rest of the house.
As the room is in the basement, the access system has been integrated with the AMX controller to alert the occupants when someone arrives with the option to open the door.
