Paving The Way For Automation


Well established expert installation company Modus Vivendi was founded in 2005, and has since delivered some of the best whole house automation systems and cinemas around. The company works directly with clients to understand their needs and provide simple and reliable integrated systems that delight and deliver tangible benefits to home owners across London and the South East.

Modus Vivendi understands and appreciates that the personal touch is required to make a house a home, so the team goes to great lengths to meet their client's needs. The company’s residential portfolio consists of single room cinema installations, to whole house integrated systems, and includes; country mansions, town houses in Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Mayfair, as well as remote country estates.

Modus Vivendi were recommended to the client to provide a whole house audio visual, control and integration system, part of which included a dedicated cinema room on the second floor of the house.  The project was being carried out in three phases, with the cinema room forming part of the second phase.

Using only high-end solutions from their vast array of product manufacturers, and with help from the Pulse Cinema’s demonstration facility, Modus Vivendi delivered this attractive and high-performance cinema.

Luke Emmott, MD for Modus Vivendi, explains, “An initial budget was provided by the client as part of our original costings, but once it came to decide on exactly what should go in to the room, the clients were invited to the Pulse Cinemas’ demonstration facility in Stansted to experience what was possible. They both very much liked the larger of the three demonstration rooms, and wanted to achieve a similar level of system that was scaled to suit their room size and shape.”

With the challenge laid down by the client, the expert team at Modus Vivendi set about delivering the client’s theatre dreams.

Luke explains, “Due to room restrictions; separate entry (front of room) and exit doors (rear of room), shape and size of room, along with the amount of seating required, a frameless projector screen was chosen to maximise the projected image. The projector was positioned behind the rear wall along with the cinema AV rack. Again, due to the size of room and projected image, seating positions were critical to ensure all eight seats could be comfortably accommodated, as well as the screen being viewable from each of the seats once populated.”

Despite these technical challenges, the team delivered a cinema that offers all the performance and comfort the client desired.
