Loft Conversion Home Cinema

Loft Conversion Home Cinema

The homeowners appointed a specialist loft conversion firm to create two spaces – a home office/library and a home cinema. They preferred to keep the space open plan with the central dividing area to be used to prepare refreshments.

The family all enjoyed various types of content from sports, TV dramas and movies and this was useful in suggesting that we use a motorised, auto-masking screen to display all the various types of content in the best way.

We used Miller & Kreisel in-wall speakers in a 7.2.2 configuration, placing the rear centre channels in the ceiling to the rear of the seating position. A pair of compact 10-inch subwoofers provided sufficient power to be felt and heard and the listening position.

The void spaces in the loft were used to hide the AV rack and the client chose motorised Velux blackout blinds for use during daylight. The AV and lighting systems were controlled using a Control4 processor and Neeo remote.
