INSPIRATION:
Sophisticated, classy, and magnificence are the concept of this project. Fukuoka pref., this cinema located, is one of the large metropolitan city in Japan and people living or visiting here are highly sophisticated. We United Cinemas, making the cinema complex adapts design snuggle the town located, tried make it loved by such people high sense. Also, “the sky” is the concept of 4th floor so the designers tried the guests feel outer space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
High ceiling like a cathedral pours light on the lobby, and huge volume of space makes us feel silence and solemn. The designers tried dispel the old-type-image of Japanese movie theatre by adapting materials that usually not used in theatre, lighting works, and space volume. Unlike the other countries like United States or Korea, watching movie is not very familiar with Japanese yet. “Make a experience of small special event of watching movie superior.” The designers designed the space hotel liked to feel calm and luxual.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
"Make Lifestyle Better" is the concept of the mall merchandising so it was completely over-rap of ours. Also "Yahuoku! Dome", the baseball stadium, locates next to the mall so this area gives not only one but complex entertainment for people.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Having the good relationship with the shopping mall which contains City Library was the beginning of this project. People who visit the building are highly sensitive and full of intellectual curiosity.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We controlled the surprises and emotions that is made by the gap between the low ceiling of the approach and the large space not messed by information, such as publicity or signage. We revised over and over to control the gaze. Also, we have made the arrangement of top-light with sunshine overflow by artificial light. To make it natural, big number of powerful instruments with subtle angle of enlighting was demanded because we had to put them on beside inside the cealing.

CHALLENGE:
We planned to gently shine the walls of a special plastering finish with the architecture of a large ceiling space and the top light of artificial light imitating natural light.
