A stone’s throw from Windsor Castle… the 19th century public house, not the Queen’s residence in Berkshire. The Campden Hill area of London, sits high on the hill boasting tree-lined streets of Victorian architectural elegance that form part of the Phillimore Estate.
With a desire for extensive technology throughout, the architects, interior designers and construction company all worked together with a specialist custom AV installer to conceive and execute a clear and cohesive design.
A pre-requisite set by the lady of the house was that all the electronics were to be rendered completely invisible, perfectly possible using invisible speakers.
A total of thirty Amina Invisible Loudspeakers were installed over five floors and sixteen zones, Amina being the easy choice for the homeowners, not only to meet the exceptional aesthetic criteria of the project, but for the excellent sound and room-filling qualities Amina speakers produce.
The fully plastered over speakers were used throughout this extensive family home, including the five Bedrooms, Office, Dining Room, Drawing Room, Gym, Staff Room, AV Room, Library and Dressing Room. This included two surround sound areas home cinema areas in the play room and main family room where the speakers were combined with an in wall sub-woofer to bring out the full cinematic experience.
The highlights for the homeowners were the kitchen, where a pair of mid-range speakers were installed in-ceiling, providing music encompassing the whole room, and the formal drawing room, installed with just one pair of Amina’s flagship speakers, effortlessly delivering high quality audio, perfect for entertaining.
The whole system, including audio & video distribution, security, Lutron lighting system, video Intercom, Heating and Cooling, has been seamlessly created by the systems integrator and entirely controlled by a Control4 processor via discrete 7’’ touch panels in every room.
A masterpiece of perfection, the finished look, which took over 18-months to complete, is both functional and aesthetically flawless.
