Meet “Casa Dei Sogni”. Italian for “House Of Dreams” and winner of many awards including the prestigious Master Builders Downs & Western 2016 House of the Year Award, this Italian villa-inspired home is something to behold.
Our task was to bring a world-class experience utilising the latest in technology that matched the class and elegance of this masterpiece. Below outlines the result.
The Home Theatre
The sound system relies on a 7.2.4 Atmos array. The room is a Dolby Atmos Certified room by Krix with each speaker positioned to reproduce the most accurate sound possible. The Krix Dramatix front speakers are nestled behind an acoustically transparent screen delivering extreme power and high sensitivity. This meant the requirement for traditional boxed speakers were removed, maximizing the aesthetic appeal of the room.
The subwoofer setup includes two Krix 11” subwoofers, built into the cabinet below the screen. The system is amplified using Integra’s flagship model receiver bringing to the room an astonishing power, richness and breathtaking audio experience. Krix Loudspeakers in-walls and in-ceiling speakers are perfectly positioned around the room enabling the sounds of the onscreen story to come from all directions, including overhead intensifying the impact of the experience.
The 150” screen itself is an acoustically transparent screen made using 4K projection foils from Europe and framed with blackest Fideleo Velvet known to man. Projecting onto the screen is Sony’s multi–award-winning 4K Home Cinema Projector producing stunning True 4K HDR detail, contrast and colour.
The Living Space
The main living room featured x4 completely invisible speakers positioned around the Fireplace, and at both ends of the room. This meant the sound travelled evenly throughout the large living area without having to blast one end of the house.
Neatly positioned within a custom-built niche is an 84” 4K ULTRA HD display. This space is controlled via a phone allowing the owners to control the volume whether cooking in the kitchen or lounging on the sofa.
The Alfresco & Award Winning Pool
Outside features Sonance 8″ architectural in-ceiling speakers for the ultimate party scene. Whether playing summers number one hits or watching the game on the outdoor TV the sound can be heard while lazing around in the Pool, cooking on the BBQ or having a siesta in the pool hut.
Every Other Room
Since we were able to work with the homeowner and builder at the earliest stages of construction, our integrators were able to distribute TV, Internet, Foxtel and HD content to every room in the house.
Perfectly positioned in each room is a flat–screen LED connecting into the distribution system with universal remotes allowing for simple control.
Every effort was to ensure the standard of excellence was not just in what was seen but also in the ceiling and down the walls, to ensure the client’s peace of mind in addition to the comforts provided by this smart home integration.
Due to this Home being not only wired for the current solutions available in 2016 but the updated technology available to us now. It has been of ease and lower than the usual cost to the Homeowner to have updated technology implemented due to our wiring designs.
This shows the importance of even just the minimum package from the Gold Class Team, being an integrated wiring design, being installed into Architecturally Designed homes like this one. This allows the Homeowner to not only update their experience as technology updates itself but have the option to only install the cabling for solutions to then have the products installed at a later date of living within the Home.
Not having these solutions at least pre-wired into these architecturally designed homes will only add limitations and further expenses if they are chosen to be installed once the construction is finished.
Our team invites you to make an appointment to come and immerse yourself in some of the stunning achievements technology has made to our lives. Our experience centre is open by appointment only.
