design et al are pleased to announce the shortlist for Taylor Interiors for the Home Cinema Award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2015. This home cinema project is part of a stunning villa in the exclusive Andalucía mountain area. Set high on a hill, yet designed with flat gardens and grounds, the front of the property is exposed to striking ocean views, while to the left the vista is mountainous.
The cinema was meticulously designed by Taylor Interiors to meet the client’s specification for the highest level of technical advancement and sound quality, married with highly bespoke design features. The result is a futuristic and luxurious space, which is stylistically glamorous while offering the highest level of comfort. The black leather seats, there are 7 in total with 5 singles and a double, are fully motorized to fold down to a flat position.
The lighting is the defining feature. It has been carefully curated to allow the viewers to become immersed in the cinematic experience. The room, located in the basement of the property, can be lit in a choice of eight colours (pink, red, green, lime green, blue, turquoise, light blue and white) to create unique atmospheres and to match the mood of the film. The space provides the highest standard of acoustics and sound quality in home cinema design, kitted out with cutting-edge Bang & Olufsen speakers (Beolab 5 and Beo lab 20) and an additional subwoofer under the Anamorphico, SS screen. The entire room was insulated with acoustic foam.
On the ceiling, LED lights illuminate dramatically against a grid formed of fine wenge. Adorning the two walls that flank the seating area there are individual slats of oak, which again are lit by LEDs, creating a dramatic wave pattern. The cutting-edge projector is the SONY 4K VPL model.
