Avenue Sound

Media Room, Multi-Zone AV and Home Automation for a South Mumbai Waterfront Apartment


Home Automation


South Mumbai


The clients for this project are music lovers and required audiophile grade sound quality across their residence. They wanted a dedicated media room which would also serve as a Home Theater for movie watching, and multiple zones to stream music to if there were to be a party or friends over. The challenge we faced was converting a conventional bedroom into an acoustically balanced listening space which would deliver the wow factors from high end audio solutions. This challenge is certainly not uncommon and we knew that proper acoustical planning would be able to curtail the challenges of reverberation and comb filtering in this layout.
