Belfield OneTouch Cinema Experience
The brief for this design was to create a multi-use Quiet Room which allowed the occupants to enjoy some quiet time without the noisy disturbances associated with living in the suburbs, this Quiet space had to double as a Cinema room with quality sound at an affordable price and have minimal impact to the adjacent bedrooms or neighbours when in use.
When we put pen to paper for this design we knew that we could easily deliver quality sound and stunning visuals however this cinema room was on second floor of a family home built with single timber framed external and internal walls and timber floors between levels. A Structure this light weight required some advanced thinking to help keep the sound in the room.
Various sound proofing technologies were selected all working together to control and minimise the impact of sound on neighbouring rooms. It all started in the walls with use of Hi-density acoustic insulation batts in the walls. followed by Kinetics isoMax sound isolation clips which were used with plasterboard furring channels to create a mechanical isolation between the internal walls and the timber frame.
The internal walls and ceiling are double sheeted with sound resistant plasterboard and a thin layer of “Quiet Glue” is spread evenly between the two layers of plasterboard greatly increasing the soundproofing properties of this room.
The subfloor is treated with hi density acoustic batts and a thin layer of flexible visco-elastic membrane, the Floor is using hi-density underlay and carpet greatly reducing the flanking and vibrations from passing thru.
Even the the double doors got a treatment of Visco-elastic membrane with airtight seals ensuring minimal sound would escape while closed.
