BioRex Rovaniemi located in Rovaniemi continues the recognizable theme of movie theatres designed by Partanen & Lamusuo. The quality interiors and sweets available from the newly renovated snack shop guarantee an enjoyable movie experience. The walls are decorated with splashy curtains. The glow of geometric lights between the curtains acts as windows to the world of cinema. The VIP-seats located at the optimal viewing distance from the screen in theatre 1 are 20 cm wider than standard seats. The front seats give the ability to lift up your feet and watch the movie in the most comfortable way possible.

While renovating the movie theater the Sampokeskus façade also got a facelift with large crown patterned decorative window film. The inspiration for the crown pattern came from the name BioRex and visual thematic. Besides being decorative the perforated window film also affords visual privacy and protects from the sun.

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.
