Best Home Cinema (under £40,000)
Winner: The Big Picture for Leafield House
A cinema room which provides the homeowner with a true cinematic experience
This project required The Big Picture to turn a sitting room with glazed windows and doors into a dedicated cinema room. The installer had to block out the windows and remove sections of the wall to accommodate speakers and subwoofers in this small room. The layout was re-orientated to enable the installer to hide the projector under the stairs.
For the video aspect, a 4K Sony projector and screen were installed. Control4 and DMX controlled RGB dimmable ribbon strips were included to provide the right lighting for a cinema experience. The left and right speakers were cleverly positioned, to provide optimum listening for the client.
The Big Picture wanted to provide sufficient ventilation for the projector unit, to ensure the on-board Sony fans always run at a minimum, offering near-silence in the cinema room.
