The theme running through the architecture of the Bio Rex Sello is bronze. The impressive atmosphere inside the auditoria is created with bronze-stained veneer on the lighting structures and midnight blue curtaining on the walls. The glistening silver of the foyer attunes its visitors to the fictitious film world even before the bronze doors of the auditorium are opened. All the auditoria are designed for the showing of digital and 3D movies and can be used for holding seminars. One auditorium, the Rex Room, is furnished in luxury style.

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.
