Farma Bii Guesthouse
After 1989, the Hospitality industry underwent a real revolution in Poland. In fact, given the scale of these changes, it has been completely consolidated over the last three decades. Within this sector, the guesthouses picturesquely located at the edge of the forests or on a lake shore, has become an important destination for those who want to get some rest, train on specific skills or simply organise an extraordinary business meeting.
All these possibilities are combined in the absolutely unique guesthouse Farma Bii located in Janinowo near Warsaw. It is first and foremost a culinary studio with hotel facilities that features a beautiful architecture and a building complex where you can rest, relax, have a great time and why not, do several physical activities.
The design of the sound system and the delivery of the sound equipment for this extraordinary space was handled by our partners in Poland, Phono Media. Now guests can enjoy not only the breathtaking views and excellent cuisine, but also the sounds of nature enriched by the highest quality sound of Ecler solutions.
Process and Installation
In all the common areas, in the main dining room, as well as the reception and toilets area, Ecler's IC6 loudspeakers have been installed, featuring a 6.5" woofer and a 1" driver. On a day-to-day basis, these speakers are primarily used for background music and, due to their number, they operate on a 100V line. Even if guests or hosts would want to throw an evening party with slightly more energetic music, the IC6 loudspeakers could easily cope with this task.
Phono Media decided to use AUDEO106 wall-mounted loudspeakers with IP54 protection class, which can be installed without any concerns in rooms with increased humidity or high temperatures.
Certainly, one of the most representative spaces of Bii Farm is the orangery, known as the winter garden. It is a huge, glazed space with a magnificent view of the nearby forest, located right next to the kitchen. The investor wanted the system installed in the orangery to be suitable both for playing background music and to cope with a small dance party. Phono Media opted for eAMBIT106 models, which feature a 6.5" woofer and a one-inch driver. In addition, eight of these loudspeakers are supported by two ARQISSB6T subwoofers. At the orangery’s bar, WPNET4KV wall panels and a WPaMIX-T were placed, thanks to which the sound system can be easily accessible by cable or portable devices such as tablets or laptops to play the guest’s favorite music.
The final part of the project consisted on completing the sound system in the terrace which is located directly next to the orangery. Here, Phono Media has installed AUDEO106 loudspeaker cabinets in white color right on the external facade, which are perfect fit for outdoor conditions.
The entire rack with all the amplifiers had to be placed... in the laundry room! This is where the matrices, players and all the amplifiers that power all the system’s components were located. For this project features Ecler’s eHSA2-150, eGPA4-150, HSA2-400ES and eGPA2-300.
Talking about ergonomics, the investor’s requirements specifically pointed out to a sound system that can be intuitive and easy to manage. To achieve this, Ecler’s MIMO88SG matrix serves User Control Panels (UCPs) to smart devices such as iPads located throughout the facilities using to Ecler UCP Application.
Regarding the music players, Farma Bii is equipped with both Ecler models ePLAYER1 and DUO-NET PLAYER. Remote control of the ePLAYER1 is facilitated vía RePLAYER application running on the tablets located in the facility, and from which we can control the playlist, repeat, or basic functions such as start, stop and pause. The DUO-NET PLAYER on the other hand, is fully compatible with EclerNet and its controlled vía UCP panels.
