Being an integral part of a Venetian based theme mall in Raipur, the client brief was to have a specific theme based experience even to the patrons of the multiplex. The overall volume of the lobby was quite low with a series of structural low beams and to design a cinema in such a limited space with a theme was our challenge.
The design revolves around the Moulin rouge theme which signifies a lot of style and glamour of a particular period. The colour scheme of the cinema rests on deep red and black combinations that hint at luxury quite synonymous to the theme. The lobby was designed as a combination of two styles: modern free flowing forms and shapes with a decorative and slightly classical ornamentation significant to the theme. Reds are highlighted by the plush carpets and walls with the paneling and the granite flooring accentuate the black quotient. The low height beams are exposed to achieve the height and diligently camouflaged with mirrors to add volume to the space. Considering the kind & status of patrons visiting the place, carpet is proposed in the low traffic area while durable stone flooring is being used in the high traffic area.
The black and red colour scheme used in this space, which is characteristic of the entire development, combined with designed LED lighting elements like the chandeliers and hue lighting, create an unusual impression adding spectacle to the space.
