Working with W Grants and the Hendricks brand team, the challenge was to provide an ambiance within the gin palace that complements and enhances their playground for invention. Meanwhile, using a near invisible audio and entertainment system to fill the dedicated spaces without compromising on the design element. In addition, the system had to be robust to handle different functions throughout the building. Moreover, Hendricks needed the system to be spread over the building… Including the specialty ‘brand’ rooms. Above all, Hendricks wanted to maintain the quirky design throughout the Gin Palace with ambient sound and sleek design.
Lairds designed a building wide solution. A wired infrastructure that provides 4k video distribution, audio in the Brand rooms and secure Wifi. The Gin palace provides the users the ability to have presentations in the Theater. Ramp it up with the audio in the bar and background music in the Lab. Consequently, the simple control of the system is through the fully secure wireless network.
Today’s professional audio integration is more than merely filling a room with music. Moreover, there is a tangible design element that’s a critical part of the space’s environment. For instance, the audio is meant to create a mood, elevate the senses and not distract from the designer’s vision and aesthetic goals. For over 10 years, the technicians at lairds have continually explored and refined the fine art of musical fidelity within a designed space. Therefore, we managed to excel in this space with a combination of Sonance and their series of award-winning in-wall and in-ceiling speakers and Custom built, colour coded speakers from Gallo Acoustics.
Lairds of Troon has worked with Sonance over a number of years. From home projects to high-end commercial builds. Therefore, our client’s investment is in a quality product that will last for many years. Consequently, Sonance Amps are the backbone of the Hendricks Gin palace audio system.
We were also privileged to work with Glasgow’s own Solus Lighting Solutions
Solus is a small team based in Glasgow with an enviable reputation for designing and installing world class cutting edge lighting solutions. Therefore, the perfect partner to bring the Gin Palace to life. In addition, Lairds worked with Gallo Acoustics , the uncompromising quality of their products and knowing that they can be trusted within this environment combined with the colour customising options made this the best speaker to use in the glasshouse of the Gin Palace. And they look and sound amazing!
The Gin palace also has an amazing 4k Video distribution system from Wyrestorm. Meanwhile, in the bar area there is a custom built mirrored glass frame hiding the video display. The Quirky theater next door has a classic projection system and 4k. In addition, we also have a custom built retro mobile video platform!
