Cinema Centre Tapio, located in Joensuu, reshaped its largest theatre, the Tapio 1 hall, in August 2018. The hall underwent a total transformation. Its intimate ambiance must be felt on-site! Theatre seats, lighting as well as wall and floor surfaces were renovated. However, the most audible change occurred in the sonic environment, implemented with the Dolby Atmos system.

The old front row of the theatre was removed, and wheel chair seats are now located at both ends of the front row farther back. Atmospheric starlight fixtures were lifted to the walls of the theatre. These have already been seen at the Maxim cinema in Varkaus, which has also been designed by Partanen & Lamusuo Ltd. Both cinemas are owned by the eastern Finnish Savon Kinot Ltd.

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.
