Emperor Cinema

Lip Chiong for Aiuto

The given theme is “Cinema in the Woods”.

We transformed mundane columns into a “forest” to create a welcoming journey into magical world of movies. By using a framework of lattice structure and changeable décor with changes each season, a sense of wanderlust and discovery is evoked.

 

The lattice structure is like a woven trellis that wraps around the space like branches of trees. This Cinema also has a unique triple-volume glass lobby hall ideal for gatherings. By extending the lattice across the lobby hall, an cathedral-like event space is created with changeable décor.
