Commercial Case Study Background
With a blend of high style, distinctive interior design and personal service, the privately owned Manor House Hotel aims to offer its guests the experience of luxury through the quality of its accommodation, communal areas and purpose-designed wedding and events spaces. Located at Lindley near Huddersﬁeld, the boutique hotel comprises eleven bedrooms, four individually themed bars and restaurants, a roof terrace and a gym. There is also a discreet wedding and events venue called the Coach House, a versatile space designed to accommodate up to 200 guests and complete with private musical garden.
Making time spent at the Manor House truly memorable, a service-ﬁrst mentality conveys a strong sense of bespoke hospitality within a range of meticulously curated environments, all of which include the necessity for discreet high performance audio in sympathy with their design.
Installer Smart Synergy was challenged to create a discreet AV installation that made a beautiful boutique experience even more distinctive.
There’s a growing desire for discreet high sound quality within the UK’s luxury hospitality sector. This may come from the US where discriminating customers associate the quality of the venue with its ability to get the audio just right.
Perfecting the sound at the Manor House was complicated somewhat by the fact that it’s a listed building, so being sensitive with the design was key, and not just with the way it looked; it also had to eliminate the transfer of sound from social to private spaces within older architecture. The brief demanded a design you just can’t buy off the shelf. The owner required a solution to match the luxury of the Hotel, but needed the install to be discreet at the same time.
Smart Synergy selected Sonance Pro Series speakers for the project. The speakers are powered entirely by Sonance Sonamp digital ampliﬁers.
To top the whole installation off, WyreStorm’s NetworkHD 400 AV over IP series was the chosen platform to distribute all video throughout the hotel and spa. Four source signals are sent over the AV over IP solution to four displays around the venue, including a large 2×2 Video Wall in the bar area, allowing any patrons to watch content in all rooms where they so please.
