Thailand - Standing more than 40 stories above the bustling city of Bangkok is Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok rooftop bar, equipped with ethereal gardens, live DJs and stunning views. The rooftop bar, Bar.Yard, mirrors the beauty of the city through futuristic designs and technology.
With an abundance of ambient noise from the lively city below, the needs of DJs to foster an entertaining space for guests and the threat of inclement weather, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok relied on Renkus-Heinz sound solutions to meet its needs while not distracting guests from the architectural beauty of the space.
Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is named for the maa-lai flower bouquet, a traditional gift given to guests in Thai culture. Working with Bangkok-based AV integration firm Vichai Trading 1983 and AV consultant Atkrist Co., Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok upgraded the rooftop bar’s audio, visual and control systems.
“In the early stages of design for Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, it was important that the AV equipment blended well with the elegant architecture while also meeting the hotel's audio requirements,” Mr. Wansamkan, AV consultant at Atkrist Co, noted. “Renkus-Heinz provided a weatherized, aesthetic and high-fidelity solution for the rooftop.”
Bar.Yard is equipped with eight TX81 Compact Two-Way Complex Conic loudspeakers, eight TX62 Two-Way Complex Conic loudspeakers and two TX112S 12-inch subwoofers from Renkus-Heinz.
“For Bar.Yard, we needed a sound system that was acoustically strong but also partial to aesthetic appearance. The Renkus-Heinz weatherized T Series loudspeakers were the ideal fit for the rooftop as they didn’t sacrifice power for size or appearance,” detailed Thitikorn Sopchokchai, assistant managing director at Vichai Trading. “The loudspeakers blend in flawlessly with our gardens and create a sound barrier throughout Bar.Yard, reducing the music pollution to the outside while at the same time blocking the noise from the streets below.”
The weatherized versions of the T Series loudspeakers were necessary for this location. The loudspeakers are protected from rain, sun exposure, harsh elements and insects. The easy-to-install Renkus-Heinz equipment sits amongst the rooftop gardens, adding to the well-rounded guest experience as each installation keeps aesthetics and design in mind while delivering an impeccable performance.
