Kyn Care Homes, Bickley

The Property

Situated within the Greater London borough of Bromley, KYN Bickley sits within a 30-minute drive from Charing Cross station, and is set within sweeping woodland-bordered landscaped gardens. The property offers 86 luxuriously appointed bedrooms in a sweeping  neo-classical building.

Kyn’s ethos centres around a devoted, compassionate, sensitive, and holistic approach to care. 

Recognising that higher standards within the care industry were necessary, (and achievable) Kyn have built a standard of care that ensures the very best outcome for its residents’ emotional and physical welfare.

Focusing on the cornerstones of good health – preventative intervention, nutrition, appropriate physical activity, mental stimulation, and an active social life – we not only materially improve the wellbeing of our residents, but significantly enhance their quality of life.

Rich and varied surroundings is key in the provision of an enhanced quality of life. Kyn provides its residents with exactly that, offering extensive landscaped gardens, a spa & hair salon, a ‘reader’s corner,’ several bespoke-designed social spaces, and a cinema.

The Technology

The Cinema Room

Kyn Bickley’s cinema room, offers a welcome escape from it all experience; residents can sink into  sumptuous, comfortable, armchairs and enjoy an eclectic mix of films and curated performances.

Airwave was delighted to assist in the provision of the cinema’s display tech, fronting the set-up with a 75-inch Samsung AU8000 Series commercial TV. Featuring 4k UHD resolution, Dynamic Crystal Colour and a sleek, ultra-slim design, Samsung’s AU8000 display offers a perfect balance of performance and design. To complement the top draw aesthetics, Airwave also implemented a Sonos playbar and subwoofer, providing cinema quality surround sound.

A Google Chromecast dongle was integrated within the display, allowing guests or a member of staff to cast content from a portable device to the TV – this offers a significant amount of flexibility, opening up the respective content libraries of a number of streaming and catch-up services, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer etc.

The Bedrooms

In the bedrooms, Airwave supplied and installed 43-inch Samsung AU8000 Series SMART TVs, each TV was wall mounted in accordance with the individual room’s size and design – 47 TVs were swivel mounted, offering residents a choice of viewing angles (useful for residents who enjoy watching TV both in bed, and the room’s seating area), and 39 TVs were flat-to-wall mounted, offering a low footprint installation.

The AU8000 Series display is SMART, connected to the property’s internet infrastructure, and consequently offers several embedded APPS, providing additional viewing options, such as BBC iPlayer, ITVX and All4. The TVs can also be implemented within a branded guest entertainment platform at a later date, should Kyn’s management team require.

The Communal & Staff Dining areas

5 x 55-inch Samsung AU8000 displays were wall-mounted in various positions throughout the communal dining area, and a 43-inch AU8000 was wall-mounted in the staff dining area.
