Ingeny, the home automation division of security systems and building technology integrator Interphone, has launched a cinema room proposition for the commercial residential sector. The complete design and build solution will transform under-utilised or redundant space into dedicated or multi-purpose cinema rooms in both existing and new residential developments. This will help enhance communal areas within a building, providing an improved living experience to residents.


“Property managers and developers are increasingly looking at ways of differentiating existing and new commercial residential buildings to boost appeal and demonstrate value to residents,” explains Julian Synett, Managing Director of Interphone. “In recent years, many prestigious apartment complexes have been looking to provide lifestyle facilities that offer a five-star experience, with a cinema or private screening room becoming one of the most in-demand features, so we have created an offering that makes this kind of option accessible to more buildings in the marketplace.”


Ingeny will use its highly-experienced, in-house design team to provide an appropriate plan based on individual building needs, using AutoCAD software. A dedicated design proposal will outline exactly what is possible with detailed drawings, design recommendations and alternative suggestions. This will provide the guidance and insight required to make a final decision as well as support any consultation period with residents or other stakeholders.


The private residential cinema solution will include all building works, soundproofing, decoration, wiring, lighting control and audio visual installation. Ingeny has also teamed up with a number of specialist technology and equipment partners to ensure that every requirement is catered for. This includes custom joinery and furniture makers that manufacture bespoke cinema seating for optimal comfort and relaxation, as well as retractable seating options that are suitable for multi-use rooms.


“We have combined our longstanding experience in the commercial residential marketplace with unrivalled expertise in building systems, home automation and cinema rooms. This means that we are ideally-placed to understand how to make best-use of the available space, create the look and feel you desire, and deliver unrivalled picture and sound quality,” concludes Julian Synett.
