New Media Room in Cleavdon, North Somerset.
When an inquiry arrived from a homeowner in Clevedon, who was wanting to convert the rather dated ‘living room’ into a ‘media room’, GBIS set to work immediately, liaising with the client in order to fully comprehend the brief. Ultimately, the client wished for a ‘one-stop shop’ to take care of the design and delivery of a fully functioning ‘media room’. To create a room that offered an everyday functional living space but which could, at the touch of a button be transformed into an immersive home cinema. There was one added complication that the client had an existing audiophile Hifi that they wanted to incorporate for a two-channel listening space but not dedicated as one. The challenge was set.

GBIS put pen to paper and interpreted the client’s wishes, producing a design that met the client’s brief. As a result, GBIS was awarded the job. Completed over two phases, the end result is a beautiful, simple-to-use system that consists of Antham AV Amps, Paradigm 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos speakers, incorporating the customers own Dali HIFI floor standing cabinet speakers along with the latest 82” 4K Samsung UHD TV. In addition, the room boasts electric automated blackout blinds, hand-crafted from luxury fabric. Control4 Home Control formed the basis of the all in one control system in order to simplify and control all third-party equipment. GBIS engineers then added a Control4 video intercom at the existing gates, installed touchscreens both in the media room, kitchen, and hallway, all of which are controlled via the Control4 interface with an easy-to-use app.


The client now has a fully functional media room with enhanced cinema specifications at the touch of a button, and to die for automated blinds creating an immersive living and media space for all the family. Not to mention mental two-channel audio for those days when you need to kick back close your eyes and listen to the artist of choice.
