design et al are pleased to announce that Finite Solutions have been shortlisted for the International Design and Architecture Awards 2016 in the Home Cinema category.
The clients were not looking for a dedicated cinema room but rather a complete overall of a seldom used lounge to create a refined, relaxing place for the family to enjoy watching TV, Sports and Films together. Having very busy schedules our clients came to us specifically for our full turnkey service in which we design, build, decorate and furnish complete games, media or cinema rooms with fully integrated high quality surround cinema systems.
The key requirements were for a completely overhauled room design and that was light and airy for TV watching during the day and early evening but had the ability to black out completely for a movie when needed. The client was open to design ideas but the interior design did have to suit an existing sofa and two chaise longs already purchased by the client.
After working on the general look and feel of the room we presented a mood board specifying all carpets, wall upholstery, fabrics and paint to be used and provided schematics detailing the rooms layout, lighting design, audio visual equipment layout and detailed costings showing how the equipment, building works, joinery and upholstery broke down and our fees to manage and deliver the project. After minor tweaks to the upholstery and equipment specification we were appointed to the project and moved on to provide the detailed design work which specified the make-up of the room acoustic build up, wiring, equipment cabinetry, ventilation and upholstery arrangement.
