The client wanted the best sound possible for its new flagship boutique in Mayfair’s Brook Street but the speakers had to be invisible – consequently the majority were concealed in shadow gaps or recessed behind grilles in special enclosures. Additionally, no audio hardware was allowed to be fixed to the structure of the grade II* listed building that houses Browns newest outlet, and that required custom mounting brackets to be fabricated.

The sheer amount of attention to detail needed to fulfil the client brief: the designers were adamant that minimal visual impact on any of the spaces would be required – and that translated in ‘no impact’. Extensive acoustic planning was needed to create effective sound coverage from what were essentially limited options for loudspeaker placement. The client’s view was: “In terms of aesthetics and answering the brief for our new flagship Browns Brook Street, AT&C succesfully delivered. We are also incredibly impressed with the audio quality and ease of use.”
