The BioRex of Tornio is located in Rajalla Shopping Mall. The new movie theatre complex was implemented into an existing building. The design of the foyer and store area was inspired by the strong diagonal lines of the Rajalla Mall. The lively placement of furniture, material choices, floating ceiling tiles and multiple lighting solutions keep the foyers interesting and personalized. Comprehensive cinema experience was emphasized when designing the theatres where excellent acoustics, comfort and aesthetics are combined.

"Excellent space, not too tight even the theatres are small. Very cozy! Awesome sound system and great movie screens. Makes you come back over and over again. Nice and smiley customer care tops it all!"

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.
