The exterior architecture of the multiplex cinema respects the unique functionalist spirit of Kajaani's Kauppakatu street. Hall 2 of the cinema extends over the street area as a glass-surfaced "Media wall" glimmering of bronze and signalling the function and enterprises of the building. The brand of the Bio Rex cinema chain was also born with the creation of this cinema. The penetrating theme of the architecture of the first Bio Rex cinema is bronze. In addition to the bronze background wall of the Media wall, bronze glitters on the plywood walls and bridges of the lobby and foyer spaces as well as in the reflective surfaces of skylights of cinema halls and in the light columns of walls. The technically high-quality and festively night-blue premises are also suited to conference use.

The ground-floor restaurant, cafeteria, ticketing and other business spaces of the centre open through large glass walls to Kauppakatu and Ämmänkoskenkatu. At the point of the cafeteria, there is a large opening that connects the first-floor foyer spaces of the cinema into a spatially impressive whole. The solemnity of the multiplex cinema is complemented by a two-part public art work, "Bronze Flow 2".

We think that adaptability is more important than flexibility when it comes to creative collaboration.
The ability to tell the same story, even if the amount of pages in the book would change. With the experience of hundreds of both small and large projects, we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished, the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view, that we can succeed only because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work in, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are a creative design and architecture office, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
