Home Cinema Design
Home Cinema Design expert Carl Beckwith has project managed a variety of bespoke home cinema installations in the UK and Europe.
With smaller, less ornate auditoriums within the modern multiplex venues across the country that are merely functional, yet bland and uninspiring; offering no presentation to a film showing to speak of without decorative interiors, creative ambient lighting, curtains, or any other ornamentation as found in the picture palaces of the past, – the sense of escapement to somewhere special has been lost forever, save for a handful of tastefully restored original cinemas running as independents.
For a number of years through the technical press in ‘home’ audio-visual journals, there has been an expansion in the design of home cinemas for clients wanting to recreate their own private theatre for film presentation, yet many practices commissioned with the execution of design, build and installation have failed to engage with a complete level of authenticity with their designs through a simple lack of understanding cinema theatre architecture.
Working with your appointed building and electrical contractor, a given home cinema design project is organised from top to bottom; galvanising each contractor’s remit of work as a team, and as with every other service in audio visual covered in these web-pages, a full understanding of correct equipment implementation, through to precise calibration of picture and sound balancing, ensure the presentation you will experience is of a far higher order than can be found elsewhere through complete knowledge of how we see and hear in real life. No trick enhancement or undue emphasis that betrays the film director’s intention.
