CONCEALED HOME CINEMA
Concealing home technology in a period property renovation
The latest property housing our concealed home cinema system is one with character in abundance. Situated on the former Lilleshall Hall Estate the property now sits within the boundaries of the Lilleshall National Sports and Conferencing Centre.
With renovations of this kind preserving an original aesthetic is very important. So when the owners started looking at renovating the old carport into a living space they had a very specific look in mind. Featuring a beautifully crafted half-wood panelling and flag stone floor the room exudes class. The clever part of this room however comes from its concealed home technology.
With a view to this becoming the main living room in the property the owners were keen to install a system which could be utilised every day for television as well as for movies. Whilst browsing at the Home Building and Renovation show the owners stumbled across Pure Theatre’s stand. After returning home and realising how close the showroom was they booked in for a demo.
After seeing the recessed ceiling screen and lift in action they knew this was the perfect solution for a discrete entertainment system for their period property. The finished room includes a CR50 projector lift and a CR240 projector screen. The projection comes from the ever-popular Epson EH-TW 9400 projector. Everything hides away at the touch of a button meaning the owners have a beautifully elegant lounge when required and a space to watch their favourite TV shows and movies.
The panelling not only looks incredible it also hides many of the other elements of the system. Clever use of cabinetry under the front bay hides all of the AV equipment including a pioneer AV Receiver. Discrete in-wall speakers are neatly fixed behind bespoke grills within the panelling. Teamed up with four in-ceiling speakers and an in-ceiling subwoofer the audio quality in this room is second to none.
The result is a beautifully crafted period living room with a discretely integrated modern entertainment hub that the owners use every single day.
