The venue GM, Jared, initially contacted us to look at upgrading the audio system as part of an ambitious total refurb of their London venue. We attended site to demo system options from Danley Sound Labs and Outline, the on-site meeting was a great opportunity to meet owner Farid and discuss the rest of their AV needs for the project.

When the client became aware of our ability to provide a complete AV solution, including lighting, video and custom LED installations, they asked us to propose some ideas for an innovative LED solution for their basement space and design projection mapping solutions with demanding requirements for their upstairs bar.

Colorful neon lights and an advanced AV installation illuminate an empty modern bar in London with a vibrant geometric floor pattern, setting a lively yet serene ambiance.

The basement features a unique LED ceiling design we envisaged with a suspended ceiling of 1-way mirror laminated PETG plastic with 168-pixel bars suspended above. With the LED ceiling off, it provides a mirrored effect, hiding the 24 universes of LED above. We designed this solution from scratch, supporting the venue with specialist subcontractors to install and spray a suitable MF ceiling grid and surveying the not-quite-plumb Victorian walls to have the plastic sheeting supplied pre-laminated, drilled and cut to millimetre precision. 

This is all accented with LED tape hidden in the joinery through the rest of the venue, in and around seating, back bars, glass shelves, handrails and skirting. There are over 60 universes of Madrix-controlled LED systems through the venue running from Luna interfaces.

For the ground floor bar, in addition to further LED tape runs throughout the room, we designed and installed two projection mapping systems, including custom 3D projection mapping structures CNC cut from stacked MDF and primed as projection surfaces. We then provided custom content mapped via Resolume that could be triggered over Artnet from a Chamsys control system.

The audio system chosen was from Outline’s Vegas installation range with Vegas 12 and Sub110 with Vegas 4 for the toilets, all on Powersoft amplification with a Xilica control system.
