The historical cinema located at the heart of Porvoo was modernised for the needs of movie spectators of the 21st century. Silver glitters on the walls, floors and the RexArc furniture of the spacious lobby of the theatre. The existing colourful seats of the halls are now accompanied by elegant black alongside satin silver.

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.
