Brisbane-based property developers, Cavcorp, recently completed the luxurious 15-storey Le Bain apartment complex, in the Brisbane suburb of Newstead.
Described as an immersive experience that delivers a sub-tropical poolside lifestyle, it is redolent of the beaches of Southern France. Crowned by eight Penthouses and a private rooftop pool, it also includes a heated pool, music streaming, temperature-controlled spa baths, private dining room, sun deck with sunbeds, sauna, Technogym, barbeque and an alfresco dining area.
To service this, the developers engaged AV integrators, Ampd to create a customized, reliable and robust audio-visual system. And they turned to Martin Audio’s popular and aesthetically designed CDD series for the audio component.
Commenting on the selection, Ampd’s Matt Hayes, said: “The stylish and discreet design, coupled with the incredibly consistent audio coverage, made the CDD range the perfect option for Le Bain. The feedback from the owners has been great and they are ecstatic with the sound quality and SPL levels that can be achieved.”
This is now the second rooftop installation completed by Ampd for Cavcorp. “We have a deep understanding of the high level of innovation and excellence they expect on their projects,” continued Matt. The result was a streamlined deployment of Martin Audio speakers under QSC Qsys control, with custom speaker brackets helping to deliver the best possible sound coverage while also ensuring a clean finish to blend with the stunning rooftop environment.
A series of CDD6 and CDD5 speakers, including weatherized versions, helps to create a seamless and holistic experience for residents no matter which part of the rooftop they were enjoying. While seven of the CDD6-WR and CDD5-WR weatherized speakers can be found in the pool and sunbed area, a pair each of the CDD6 and CDD5 are located in the gym and private dining room respectively. A custom touch screen UCI was also installed in the private dining room and rack to offer residents and building managers full control of the system. In fact custom control is provided for each individual zone. Also available is wireless music streaming, automatic level adjustments at set times along with quick and simple adjustments that building management can select depending on day to day variables.
Finally, the entire system was tuned to suit the different rooms/listening environments to guarantee the highest quality experience for Le Bain residents.
Summing up, Matt said: “Through our considered and meticulous approach, coupled with our expert knowledge and passion for finding the right solution for our clients, we were able to deliver a high-quality, integrated and seamless audio-visual system that complements the luxurious French-inspired rooftop oasis in Newstead.
“Our deployment of Martin Audio’s versatile CDD series unifies both the indoor and outdoor spaces to create a unique experience that transports Le Bain residents to the South of France.”
