K-array system chosen for luxury eco hotel in Austria29 March 2017
The Puradies luxury eco hotel in Leogang, Austria has recently been expanded with a specially designed K-array system integrated into the new structure.
The four-star hotel draws upon its natural surroundings using wood from the alpine forest and serving organic produce and products from the farm.
To integrate an audio system in the new structure, owners brought in interior architect Christoph Piffer and system engineer, K-array product specialist Karl Wienand who collaborated on the design of a K-array system.
Selected for their ability to integrate with the impressive interior design, K-array’s loudspeakers were installed in numerous areas throughout the hotel in both new and existing structures that were redesigned, co-ordinating perfectly with the modern style of the country house architecture.
In the main bar and lounge, 13 Anakonda KAN200 speakers were chained and paired with three Rumble KU210 subwoofers. In the smoking room, a Vyper KV50 system was installed using two of the loudspeakers paired with a Rumble KU210 subwoofer. In the library, four Lyzard KZ12 miniature line arrays were hidden among the bookshelves and combined with two Rumble KU44 subwoofers.
In the existing restaurant, another system of Lyzards was installed using 14 units with seven Rumble KU44 subwoofers. Another 12 Lyzards and six Rumble KU44 subs were used for the audio system in the new restaurant. The system in the Beauty and Wellness Centre called for 25 Tornado KT2CW point sources plus a Rumble KU44 sub.
All the systems were powered by a combination of amplifiers in the Kommander line including five KA14, and one KA24 and one KA84.
Once the installation was complete, both Wienand and Piffer heard nothing but glowing praise from owners the Madreiter family: “We are really happy with the installation and excited that the guests can enjoy both the calming winters and beautiful summers here a Puradies with the highest-quality audio solutions and all the other luxury amenities we have implemented to ensure a wonderful alpine experience.”
