Flaxmere House – Luxury Venue Sound Integration
Rapallo were contacted by the owner of Flaxmere House looking to add a more integrated sound system into their wedding & conference venue.
Flaxmere House is located in Auckland near Bethells Beach, Waitakere Ranges with a tranquil setting and views of Bethells Valley. This Executive 5-star Venue/Holiday House was designed all on one level of 440m2 floor area on a private 5 acres. Its quite a stunning location.
Like we do with most projects, we visited the venue and talked through the requirements and understood the spaces. We then presented back a proposal that included a reverse brief, to ensure we understood the requirements. Our install team then went onsite for two days to complete the pre-wire and setup. On the last day we did the final fit-off and setup of the zones / cabling / speakers and the app to control it all. To assist the client, we then spent a bit of time over the following weeks adjusting the system to work with the DJ’s / Bands and the zones. This was to ensure it worked to the large variety of events they have onsite.
Using Denon’s multi-room platform and app control we have created four zones of sound, a microphone zone that is integrated within these zones (for ceremonies), connections to a TV for streaming content, and an integration interface for the DJ’s / Bands that come onsite to allow their sounds onto the speakers in the sound zones. This gives the team at Flaxmere House a flexible platform to control the sounds across the venue.
When all the zones are playing, it sounds fantastic.
If you are looking for a venue with an amazing setting, great hosts and that is not far from the city centre, then check out Flaxmere House.
