ONE OF THE INDUSTRY'S MOST INVENTIVE HOME CINEMAS

Installer: NewLand Solutions Ltd

Overview: Hidden beneath an elegant 18th century terrace house, close to Buckingham Palace, New Land Solutions worked with Interior Designer, Tim Gosling, to renovate the historic building and create one of the industry's most inventive home cinemas. This project required NewLand Solutions to create a stunning, state of the art working and living environment in the basement of the house with a Savant control system at it's heart...

When first entering through the curved, golden corridor, the room appears to be a relatively simple living space. At the touch of a button, the room is completely transformed (in less than 100 seconds) via the Savant Pro home automation system:
The coffee table silently disappears below the floor, allowing the sofa to seamlessly slide forward, replacing the position of the table. From behind the sofa, five reclining cinema chairs simultaneously rise up, the projection screen comes down, blinds close and lights dim... ready for the movie to begin.


Luke Newland, Director of Newland Solution concludes: "As well as being really proud of our own efforts, Pulse and Future Automation really outdid themselves on this project. Giving us the support to make this crazy idea come true."



This sleek transformation was featured on Channel 4's Gadget Man!


The Savant Pro system was made up of Savant SSP Matrix with HDMI Blades, Savant Pro Host and Savant PBX (for intercom functionality).
