The Londoner, the world’s first super boutique hotel located in London’s prestigious Leicester Square, offers a truly exceptional experience for its guests. The hotel’s mission is to provide the highest-quality, yet most-discreet, audio solution to complement its artistic interiors. The Londoner chose Bose Professional to provide the audio-visual solution for the hotel.
Luxurious Features of The Londoner
The hotel has 16 stories, six of which are underground, and offers 350 guest rooms, multiple restaurants, lounges, and rooftop bars, an underground spa and swimming pool, two Odeon cinemas, and a multi-million-dollar art collection. The hotel’s crown jewel is an 880-guest capacity ballroom complete with lighting and projection technology.
The Londoner’s Vision for the Ballroom
The Londoner wanted to ensure that the ballroom was the best in the country, and wanted an audio-visual solution that would complement the hotel’s sprawling art collection and lavish interiors. More than 40,000 meters of audio-visual cabling was needed throughout the building to achieve this. The team concentrated on integrating the visual components like lighting and digital displays, as well as the audio capabilities that were both cutting edge and transparent.
Bose Professional Audio Solution
The team built on the hotel’s existing data infrastructure by installing an extensive solution of Bose Professional products. The overall setup includes more than 300 Bose Professional loudspeakers. Included are the DesignMax, EdgeMax, and FreeSpace range of loudspeakers, which deliver space-saturating audio throughout all the various common spaces in an efficient and discrete footprint.
Exceptional Audio Experience in the Ballroom
The Ballroom delivers a diverse, refined flexible space with state-of-the-art technology and quality dining. The ShowMatch DeltaQ loudspeakers ensure an inspirational experience every time. Equipped with zone controls like the ControlSpace CC-1 that allows for local volume control by staff while having the option of sharing the Ballroom’s activities and music throughout other parts of the hotel.
Immersive Audio at the Stage Champaign Bar
The Stage Champaign Bar, one of the six restaurants and bars, provides live music. The team leveraged the room-filling coverage provided by the in-ceiling EdgeMax EM180 loudspeakers located at the edges of the room. The ControlSpace CC-16 zone control panel and a Dante wall plate enables easy and intuitive control for a variety of music setups.
Tailored Audio Ambiance in Restaurants and Rooftop Bar
The combination of ControlSpace CC-16 and CC-64 control panels, FreeSpace loudspeakers, and MB210-WR subwoofers provide the other hotel restaurants and rooftop bar with the ideal, bespoke ambiance needed while remaining easy to manage. Within each of these spaces, the audio technology blends into the spaces, allowing for a memorable indoor and outdoor dining experience.
Relaxation with Audio in the Mezzanine Level
The Mezzanine level, completely for hotel residents, consists of three unique areas, each controlled by a ControlSpace CC-1 zone controller. This level features the EdgeMax EM90 in-ceiling loudspeaker, providing an area to experience art and relaxation.
Audio Solution for Lower Levels
In the lower levels, which are dedicated to the Green Room and multi-purpose area, the audio solution combines several MB210-WR subwoofers along with RoomMatch RMU206 and RMU208 loudspeakers. This allows for lower-level background sound during the day yet supports the higher levels desired for evening activities.
Seamless Integration of Audio Technology
Throughout the hotel, guests are greeted by clever works of art and exceptional interior design. From the lobby and guestrooms and within each amenity, visitors are surrounded by soothing soundscapes to complement the artistic interiors, delivered by transparent audio technology that blends seamlessly into the hotel’s surroundings.
