Creative freedom to deliver the dream cinema room
From Nick Caripis:
There’s an understandable focus of technical detail when it comes to cinema rooms, but the home provided another challenge: make this a room for the whole family to enjoy. It’s a project we took on with great enthusiasm – knowing that our client had saved a space in his new home for us to develop, and giving us creative freedom to deliver on his dream cinema room was an all-round enjoyable experience for us.
The Coral Road journey had truly begun.
Carving out a space as a canvas, dedicated to the home cinema experience.Back in 2016, our client approached us to explore his home cinemascaping options. Our designers invited him to a private viewing of our cinema, where he could appreciate the full experience. Every whim, every desire, every last dreamy detail was placed on the table for the man himself. Oh, he was impressed.
But the timing was not right.
He would not let his enthusiasm outweigh his strategy or his patience. He needed some time.
Weeks passed. Months rolled by. The call from our Man didn’t come. But with a dexterity like his, we knew it would…
And it did! Two years later, with his vision mapped out and his timing on schedule, the phone rang. He was ready. His new home was ready. In the process of his home build, he instructed his architect to carve out a space as a canvas, dedicated to the home cinema experience.
The rest, he said, was up to us…
We started our journey with a clean sweep
A new canvas of thinking.
We also found a home for firstsCoral Road was the first BNC Technology project that implemented a dedicated EQ unit as a permanent part of the setup. It added to the technical complexity of the cinema planning, but means that the perfect sound is delivered every time. Yep, it’s a first for us – but it won’t be the last time we include that particular toy…
Technical complexity of the cinema planning
What he said“Give me something beautiful.”
What we didAssessed the space for the perfect marriage of welcoming luxury and immersive entertainment.
What we discoveredA client willing to give us creative freedom, which allowed us to deliver beyond expectation. We selected finishes for their warmth and natural appeal and combined them with technical expertise and world class in-house design. This would be an audio visual experience like no other.
The skill is in the blending of tones and texturesMaking these seemingly opposite elements live together in luxurious harmony
Power conditioning. Simple look, powerful results.
Custom couches finished with inviting tones and soft throws.
What he said“Keep it minimalist. Make sure it’s contemporary.”
What we didA bespoke couch was swathed in fine fabric, refined further by adding soft cushions; an antithesis to the technical requirements of our acoustic treatment.
What we installed
a 145” acoustically transparent screen that conceals the left, right and centre channel speakers.
The skill is in the blending of tones and textures, making these seemingly opposite elements live together in luxurious harmony, under a clear sky of brilliant starlight. Astonishing acoustics, stirring sound and vivid vision merge seamlessly with the surroundings, making for a truly immersive experience.
Our material selection for the room helps sound and vision work together for a natural, seamless experience that the family can enjoy.

What he said“The room sits very close to the water table.”
What we didAn automated pump that drains excess water when it reaches a pre-determined level. But because it’s who we are, we took it a step further.
The end resultUsing smart sensors, the water level is constantly monitored. If it rises to a critical point, the system will shut off power to selected components, and send an alert to our clients phone. We think it’s pretty damn cool.
Sometimes, it’s not what’s on the inside that counts. We took into account a window on the face of the house – left untreated, it would have been a weak link. Acoustic panelling on the inside, and a dark tint on the outside. Business as usual.
With the house being a concrete construction, sound isolation was an important consideration. We chose a double-door cinema room entry solution. Technically inspired, elegantly executed.
Delivering the best of everything often requires compromise. In Coral Road, the hardness of the wood finishes provided an elegant alternative to the traditional black and grey, but due to their reflective nature, added a dimension of complexity to the acoustic planning.
A balance was struck.
Added acoustic absorption hidden in the walls work together with the soft furnishings to provide a superior sound stage. You say “problem”, we say “solution”. It’s what we do.
The vision of one man, supported by many, to be enjoyed by the select few
The family now get to share their time together while soaking in the starlight, wrapped up in pure indulgence.
These are times the Future Forward clients hits pause, so they can enjoy the Now.
The family settled in; the stars shone. The screen revealed its first images and the speakers came alive with captivating brilliance. They knew that from now on, this was their special place to share together, whenever they chose.
Not surprising that dad and his boys turned their new home cinema into the venue for a sleepover on that first night…
A toast to big moments, big dreams and the blessing of family time – with all the bells and whistles.
