Aonyx were commissioned by a Leading National Property Developer to deliver a show-stopping communal cinema room for residents of an Ultra Prime High Rise Apartment building in Central London to enjoy.
Having successfully completed a number of successful projects with the Developer over the years, Aonyx turned their attention toward the unique features and challenges of this exciting and exclusive Development. The project brief was to design, supply, install, commission & maintain a bespoke 18 seat Cinema Room. Aonyx were given a concrete shell and tasked with handing over a fully operational, finished cinema. Every element of the room was custom designed and delivered to exacting standards and an uncompromising level of precision.
The Cinema features a Dolby Atmos Loudspeaker Array to provide the highest levels of audio performance for the space. A 4K Laser Projection system provides the visuals, all fully integrated via a Home Automation system incorporating Lighting, Networking, Power Distribution, climate and security integration, all seamlessly and conveniently controlled via Wallmounted & Tabletop touchscreens, Universal Remote and iPad App.
Although the room boasts an uncompromising AV system, you would never have guessed upon entering the space. Design & aesthetics were the key consideration for the client and the challenge was set for Aonyx to use all their experience and discretion to ensure that all the equipment was sympathetically interwoven into the fabric of the room and hidden from view.
The speaker array is made invisible by a custom, acoustically transparent stretched fabric solution. The projector is discreetly housed in a bespoke joinery unit at the rear of the room, serviced by a dedicated extraction system to ensure the powerful laser engine never overheats during operation.
Everything from the design and structural load calculations of the tiered seating platform to the acoustic wall treatment and sound attenuation design was thought through and expertly implemented by Aonyx, scrutinized and signed off at every stage by the Developer’s expert technical & quality assurance teams and Architect. Custom designed bespoke cinema seating for 18 was designed and installed also incorporating disabled access and wheelchair space, along with emergency lighting, access control, CCTV surveillance and room booking system. The end result is a breath-taking Cinema befitting of its surroundings and position in one of London’s most Exclusive and Prestigious Landmark Addresses.
