About the Project

This is a project considered using architectural perspective to create an effect to drag people in as a cinema entrance. Make “a city where we live together” happy through entertainment”; setting this as a philosophy, we thought of a design that adds spice to an act of watching a film, and we organised information and mechanism that makes people want to watch upcoming film in a cinema. This is a proposition of a space that makes movie time, which is already special and luxurious, even more enriched for people to spend their time.

What’s unique about it

A placemaking of a space where people want to be at, a figure that attracts people. Circulation of people is controlled in a chaotic environment of a commercial facility by providing an overwhelming empty space, and organising and clarifying functions and information.

Also by considering ways to spend time before and after watching movies, we designed the entrance to stands out and generate positive bustle, and also as a device to catch people’s eye. At a hotel lounge like lobby area, customers can spend relaxed time until they enter a cinema room. At a counter, they can gaze over film information while chatting with friends. Having a meal at a fancy restaurant. Spending time at a classy hotel because it’s a special day. This is design of a cinema that provided such simple luxury.
