'Theatre of Dreams' by Studio Bilaang
Within 400 square feet, this trendy home theatre features delightful retro-hues that breathes fresh life into every nook and corner of this contemporary space.
The entrance of the theatre embraces a retro yet classic backlit ‘Cinema’ name plate which sets forth a striking first impression of what lies beyond the classic veneer door jeweled with a sleek golden handle.
The dazzling gold cushioned wall panels blends in seamlessly with the black fabric walls, also taking care of the acoustical requirements of the theater system. "The client approached us interestingly just to design one of the rooms of their Individual huge residence, into a home theater room where they wished it to be a place where they could accommodate Friends & family over for Movies and Match-days. At the same time they wanted this home theater to be a standout cinema being huge movie-buffs which was unique and gave us a free hand to be as creative and innovative as needed . Hence we have designed not only the interiors of the theater room but also the entrance of the room to make the theater rooms stand apart within the residence itself." said the team at Studio Bilaang.
The highly characterful aesthetics was rendered with a unique sensibility for detail and technicality for all Audio-visual systems. The customized king size sofa come bed in teal with charging sockets and cup holders meet in all requirements for long movie hours and match days!!!
"Yes, designing a theater is challenging. One has to take care of the acoustics as well as the aesthetics. We have carefully selected almost all finishes with respect to the porosity and acoustic property of them. We have used fabric on each wall of the theater and beneath the fabric there is double layered paneling of gypsum with a rock based mineral fiber underneath engineered for soundproofing and insulation. The ceiling too was made of acoustic panels and flooring was finished with a dense carpet. The cushioned panels too consist of foam which again helps in sound absorption." said the designers at Studio Bilaang.
The client being one of the biggest fans of King Khan, we went on with a classic SRK portrait in the heart of the cushion paneled wall. On the opposite wall a stand out wooden console table with marble handles just adds to the lux vibe.
