SMOKE HOUSE ROOM Smoke House Room or Shroom for short is an interesting venue that really ignites the senses. From a design perspective architect and design specialist, The Busride, focused its efforts on producing a design, which articulated a very progressive experience. Founder of The Busride, Ayaz Basrai said: “We’ve tried to create organic, flowing, seamlessly melting forms, which flow through the entire space. In the restaurant is the most classic interpretation of that organic language.” The restaurant is only the start. In the classic tasting room restaurant diners are treated to cutting edge food in terms of technique and the way the food is fused together, incorporating up to 20 flavours on one plate. Moving through to the cocktail bar, Ayaz explained how the venue evolves: “In the cocktail bar it gets a little more pronounced there are a lot more fluid forms, a lot more surfaces intertwining and intermixing. As it moves into the nightclub it becomes a lot more layered with lights, and sound effects so its much more high energy interpretation of the same language.” A lot of the form inspirations were derived from the canapé and texture of a mushroom, hence the name Shroom. Ayaz was keen to ensure every component came together as one to produce a clean design. Dave explained further: “We knew what we wanted to do fairly early on in the project so Ayaz was able to incorporate a lot of the technology into his design, doing this early in the project allowed us to hide most of the cabling, power packs leaving a really clean room. Shroom is a really cool futuristic place and the tech had to match that but be unobtrusive and above all reliable.” The sound system Dave chose for Shroom was Void. He specified two Void Air Motions for the nightclub area, and Ayaz requested that they were colour customised grey so they would fully blend into his design. The system also comprised 14 Mycro 6’s, six Mycro 8’s, two Mycro 10’s, six Mycro Bass, three Mycro Subs and two Impulse 8i subwoofers. Dave explained the set up: “We kept it simple, whilst the space can run as a whole system we also allowed each area to be


a separate unit, delaying the system properly also meant the sound was seamless as each area opened up. The sound fades from the club to the restaurant so it guides you through the space until you reach the main dancefloor.” Something which was key to the owners of Shroom was that anyone who worked on the project fully understood the end goal. Shroom’s Siddharth Mathur said: “Shroom is a hand-made touchy feely sort of place so, only if you understand where we are coming from, what we want to try and give to the end user can it then be put into the correct form. We found Most Technical India were the only ones who actually got it.” To power the sound system, Dave installed eight amplifiers from the Void Infinite X Series, and four from the Infinite QX Series. Both series make use of an advanced class AB mosfet output stage, which improves fidelity and reliability. The QX amplifiers also feature a fully adjustable crossover filter on every channel that helps to enhance the flexibility of the system, and offers better control options. Three Void Live Drive management systems are responsible for the processing needs at Shroom. Alex said: “There are a lot of different Void products in Shroom, you effectively have three venues combined into one, which have to work either in isolation or as one harmonious space. It is a very unique venue, and one of my favourite installations to date. I never considered it a platform to showcase our products, more a case that it a pleasure to be involved and have a contribution, to this highly creative performance space.” Ayaz was really pleased with the Void system and the way it fitted into the space perfectly at Shroom. He had seen other projects designed and installed by MTI, and he knew that the company fully understood the clubbing culture. He said: “We saw a demo of the Void system with Dave and then went and checked out matter [nightclub] in London, it was fantastic. Everything was custom designed for this place because it’s not a very large club and it’s a contained experience. Most Technical India then sorted us out with the specs in terms of how many speakers, and their positions.
