The BioRex theatre facilities were updated to meet today’s requirements in Vaasa. The renovation was completed in two phases. In the first phase two old auditoriums were renovated. The old auditoriums received a facelift by updated seating and interior finishes. The sound systems and screens were modernized as well. The old acoustic elements of the auditoriums were utilized by reconstructing them into dashing wall mounted light fixtures. In the second phase three old auditoriums were replaced with four new modern ones.

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.
