From the design stage we were given a space that we had to create a high-end high Hi-Fi system with the ability to change the system to a 5.1 surround sound system. We achieved this by using Artcoustic paired with Bowers & Wilkins speakers. This was all driven by Primare for the Hi-Fi system or Yamaha for the surround sound system. The client has the ability to switch between the two with a handheld RTI controller. This made the system simple to use and the client could effortless switch between the two modes. Rako lighting was also installed so the client could control the light levels in the area for when watching television or movies.
In addition to the requirement of the two types of media the system also had to fit into the design of a contemporary home. By using a custom width soundbar from Artcoustic we were able to keep the clean lines of the room in with the interaction between the television and the speaker. In addition the system had to take up as little space as possible in the home with space being at the highest premium in Chelsea.
