Rogue Home Cinema in Western Australia tells us that this space was created for a client who already had an existing Rogue cinema room in his home, delivered back in 2017. Now they were keen to transform a bar and games area into an edgy and exciting sports and gaming room.

The idea was for a space that “feels radical” and allows the owner (and presumably friends) to be active in the room with the pool table, pinball and other games while remaining connected to sports on the large screen. This screen — a 75-incher — can also be seen from an outdoor area if the windows and curtains opposite it are opened.

One of the challenges was having no clear focal point for audio. Rogue achieved the required dispersion using on-wall Triad LCR speakers and 10-inch subwoofer around the TV, with two additional Triad in-ceiling speakers angled back into the pool table area, and finally a second sub, this time a huge 15-inch Triad Gold model, behind the pinball machines.

The room styling uses strong geometric patterns in both the carpeting and in Artnovion acoustic panels, with clean neutral finishes between “to create negative space” says Rogue’s Scott Rogan. “It created a level of mystery and intrigue without being too busy or closed in.”

 ??  ?? The 75-inch screen is flanked by on-wall speakers and subwoofer, with further speakers ensuring an even audio delivery across the room.
The star ceiling recessed over the pool table adds a sense of height and space.
