ASTRAL MALTA 14 EAST INSTALLATION

We were tasked to supply Automation and Networking for this entire project. In detail this included lighting control, multi-room audio, control for motorized blinds and curtains, integrated control for heating and cooling and wi-fi networking for 15 luxury apartments including a penthouse
As is normal with our way of working, we were present on this development very early on, since we executed this project from start to finish which includes design, wiring, installing and commissioning of all the systems.

Like the other 14 luxury apartments within this development, we installed and commissioned the Automation and Networking systems throughout this penthouse. The lighting system is of course much larger than the other apartments having double the number of dimming circuits involved. The multi-room system was also extended to 8 different zones. Another upgrade which adds a touch of class was the use of the ARKE range of Vimar wiring accessories throughout the apartment .

Home cinema is always a particularly rewarding project to deliver especially when the cinema room is a dedicated entertainment area.

In this case we used an Adeo 135″ fixed frame projection screen in 16:9 format and a ceiling mount 4k UHD projector.

Bowers & Wilkins was the chosen brand for speakers. The fronts are the 600 series floor standers accompanied by the HTM6 centre channel speaker, while the rear and effect speakers are the CWM series in ceiling speakers custom sprayed in black. The speaker system is finished off by the active ASW610 subwoofer.

This 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos system is powered by the Denon AVRX3600H surround network amplifier.

The brief from the client was an Audio and Projection system for a chill out/relaxing room with limited space due to the size of the room and importantly no clutter.

We opted for an Adeo motorised cassette type ceiling projector screen which is hidden away above the soffit when not in use. The screen is in widescreen format and measures 78 inches in diagonal.

A WXGA Epson short throw projector was ceiling mounted using a low profile bracket due to the limited space in the room. The projector is placed only 81cm away from the screen, but still projects an image measuring 78-inches diagonally.

The sound system includes two in ceiling mount Bowers and Wilkins 6 inch speakers, coupled with an ultra-compact stereo network amplifier with built-in Bluetooth and WiFi for wireless control from phones and tablets.
