Project Brief

We have created a sculptured ceiling by creating a dynamic design to form a pattern that flows from the box office to the houses to unify the same space and creating a smooth orientation for the customers.

The entrance uses various types of materials such as rose gold-anodized stainless steel, walnut timber, white aluminium cladding, tinted glass for the lighting feature and a combination of marble flooring, by incorporating all these materials together it transforms the interior into a superior and stylish cinema.

Project Innovation/Need

We have kept the original layout of the interior however the cinemas box office and houses were originally separated by a public corridor. We then used this opportunity to merge these areas together by using the same design flow through the corridor from the box office to the lobby and houses area, in hopes it will attract more customers to the cinema.

Design Challenge

The challenge for this project was time. As our client had to keep their business open whilst renovating, we therefore had to split our schedule into three parts. This was a time consuming project as we had to work together and not cause any mistakes as this would of then slowed down the process.

Sustainability

We have decorated the interior of this cinema with LED lights that are environmentally friendly, as they are longer lasting and therefore don't need to be replaced often. It also consumes less energy which means they produce less heat.
