The utmost standards of design, craftsmanship, and engineering were called for in this recording studio aboard a privately-owned luxury yacht. Each and every component, including lighting fixtures, electrical finish, doors, hardware, fabrics, carpets, and furniture, was custom-built and hand-crafted by European artisans. Prior to final fit, the entire installation was mocked-up on the fabricator’s factory floor for verification and coordination.
Blending plush comfort, unparalleled technique, and technical prowess, design parameters were pushed to provide the finest in luxury and convenience. Distinctive woven leather ceiling panels provide acoustic absorption and textural beauty. PMC monitors hang on custom ceiling brackets along the front wall amid an array of guitars displayed on custom wall racks. Floor fittings in multiple locations throughout the room secure the SSL console, factory-selected Steinway grand piano, and custom sectional sofa. A swing arm-mounted touch-screen panel unfolds from a sofa armrest alongside the Owner’s seat, allowing fingertip control of all systems and equipment.
This screening room aboard a luxury yacht is designed to present the cinematic experience on its most intimate level. The room seats sixteen on plush hand-crafted two and three person sofa-style seating. Elongated front row seats include cushioned footrests for added comfort. Embodying the highest level of design and construction technique, finishes include horsehair fabric wall panels trimmed with metal reveals, ebony risers, and custom woven carpeting.
Custom neoprene mounts welded off to ship steel at the floor, walls, and ceiling form a three dimensional isolation system for the acoustic shell of lead-core plywood. All theatrical systems are controlled from custom touch-screen panel in an ebony and black granite console beside the Owner’s centrally located seat and on in the projection booth. A fully-adjustable masking system adapts to the aspect ratio of any format displayed by the advanced digital projection system. Remote source fiber optic lighting in the cinema insures no distracting light sources. Speakers for the 5.1 surround system are concealed behind removable fabric wall panels.
