cepezed designs expansion arcaplex spijkenisse

cepezed expands the Arcaplex cinema multiplex in Spijkenisse with a seventh theatre counting around 300 chairs. Beneath the auditorium, there will be room for a small foyer and office space for the management. The extension will also incorporate an existing transformator and contain room for a trash compactor.

The expansion follows the contour, alignment and formal idiom of the exisitng building, but will have it's own distinguished appearance. For example, it will have a vertically articulated, transparent curtain wall above a closed plinth. From outside, the theatre and its projection cabin seem to be suspended from the roof as one large volume.
