The magical atmosphere of the old cinema was preserved, although the two theatres of BioRex and the ticket sale service were completely reshaped. The theatres got modern screens and sound engineering. The good ventilation of the cinema was made visible in the decoration by treating the massive ventilation pipes. They received a glittering silver surface characteristic of BioRexes, in contrast to the renovated blue seats.

Familiar and beloved. The old ceiling lamp was repaired. It gets a lift from the walls of the same hue. Photo © BioRex.

The viewing comfort of the large theatre was substantially improved also because an ascending auditorium was built in the large theatre. The last row is now 70 centimetres higher than the first. The large theatre seats 115 spectators and the small theatre 40. The beautiful old ceiling lamp was kept in the lobby as a familiar mood setter. The staircase lighting shimmering in silver, in its turn, creates a touch sci-fi in the large theatre.

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.
