Windsor Family Cinema

A busy family wanted to make the most of an unused basement area, for years they had planned to split the room in two, one part gym and one part cinema. The brief was simple, create a relaxed but functional room in which a very busy family can spend precious time together. The end result is a Dolby Atmos cinema room which has now become the centre of entertainment for the home.

Sound you can feel

The design centres around a 5.2.4 Dolby Atmos speaker configuration. The speaker types used were in wall and in-ceiling variants of the KEF THX series.


Acoustic decorative tiling will enhance the audio experience but also create a warm but functional atmosphere. To ensure the room has the right acoustic performance, the purpose-built baffle wall at the front will allow us to incorporate extensive acoustic treatment behind the wall. The acoustically-transparent screen will permit the front left, centre and right speakers to be installed in the perfect position behind the screen, with dual subwoofers side by side.


The screen is a fixed frame 2.40 cinema scope with side masking, the projector is a Sony ceiling-mounted 4K, HDR and full 18GB industry leader. Electronic blackout shades prevent the light from disturbing the image on sunny days and a large curtain separates the room from the gym area but still allows the full use of the open space. Acoustic decorative tiling enhances the audio experience but also creates a warm but functional atmosphere.
