VisualPlanet Installs Sound at Kimpton Vividora Hotel in Barcelona

Description

In the vibrant historic heart of Barcelona stands the Kimpton Vividora, a 5-star hotel where design and luxury blend harmoniously. This establishment offers a select and elegant atmosphere inspired by the warmth of the Mediterranean.

Awarded in 2023 with the World Luxury Hotel Awards and the Best Luxury Lifestyle Hotel, among others.

In its stunning "Terraza de Vivi," guests can enjoy a unique experience, whether savoring a brunch, tasting impromptu tapas during the day or at sunset, with a spectacular panoramic view of Barcelona, or relaxing by its magnificent pool.

The "Fauna" restaurant, with its cozy and warm atmosphere, enhances the hotel's prestige by presenting the essence of traditional Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine, reinvented with a creative and modern approach.

To complement these exceptional environments, it was crucial that the quality of the sound installation was up to par.

It was essential to properly manage the sound on the terrace in all its areas, allowing for live music or ambient events.

Likewise, in the "Fauna" restaurant, it was essential to improve the sound quality in each of its different rooms, without forgetting to comply with the regulations of the Barcelona City Council and environmental ordinances (OMA).

Solution

For the "Terraza Vivi," VisualPlanet's engineering team conducted a comprehensive study of sound pressure viability and sound projection angles, ensuring that neighbors are not disturbed, even at maximum volume. To ensure the highest outdoor sound quality, we chose weather-resistant speakers from the renowned VOID brand, whose fresh and elegant design is ideal for upscale and luxurious environments.

System control is carried out with equipment from the prestigious ECLER brand. A digital matrix, along with several multichannel power amplifiers, allows for sophisticated management of each of the created zones, all easily controllable from a simple mobile phone. Additionally, the system includes a CESVA-approved limiter-recorder, complying with strict OMA ordinances.

In the "Fauna Restaurant," we also installed VOID ceiling speakers that provide exceptional sound quality, controlled through ECLER power amplifiers. Here, another CESVA-approved limiter-recorder is included to comply with OMA regulations.

The result is a very high-quality sound with a unique, innovative, and fresh aesthetic, which currently positions this hotel among the best internationally in terms of its sound installation.
