R WORLD BIG CINEMAS

The Purple Ink Studio en tant que Architectes.

The existing single screen theatre of 1979 was dated and desired a contemporary face-lift. It saw a strong potential to morph into a new urban landmark. The design derived clues from the site context and thus presents itself as a sensitive, context-conscious modernizing impulse. The Single Screen Theatre thus underwent a complete transformation and was converted into a 3 Screen Multiplex with a total seating capacity ofapproximately 600 seats. This included creation of 2 Premium Lounges, working on the existing theatre and enhancing the lobbies and the concession areas completely.


The site is situated in a major city junction which is within a dense urban fabric. The building desired a facelift that would be responsive to the functional context of the built form.


The facade treatment is based on generation of tessellations through modular geometry which creates a rhythmic note in the realm of a dense chaotic fabric. The façadedevelopment is initiated from a flat surface which is then folded and tilted in different planes following a particular shape. This formulated a prototype which would be reproduced to generate a tessellated surface with modules not overlapping each other. The design of the façade being modular made the construction quick and straight forward. The construction was made less complicatedwith the use of light aluminum cladding material to avoid additional load on structure.


The exterior and interiors are designed as a seemingly homogenous surface which flows from the façade into the entrance lobby where the same is experienced on the ceiling. Once the visitor experiences the dramatic effects created on the exterior, the idea is not to let the emotion fade away but to augment the felling as one progresses towards the interiors.
