A 43,000-square-foot, two-story, movie theater with eight state-of-the-art auditoriums, ranging in size from 44 to 82 seats, a high-end Mediterranean restaurant and lounge with outdoor seating.
The project consisted of both an interior and exterior renovation of an existing movie theater in a high-end mixed use center. The exterior was a two-story, 14,133sf project, consisting of a new fascade combining wood paneling from Spain with metal panels and a curtain glass system and efis with stone elements. It included folding glass doors to open up the outdoors to the inside, as well as covered patio dining. The project incorporated escalators and elevators, and required 3 project managers and three superintendents full time to complete the project in the fast-tracked 24 week project.
The interior renovation was a 32,000sf project with many high-end custom finishes with long lead times. The interior renovation consisted of a dramatic entrance with a modern exterior, construction of the 10,000sf full service Tanzy Mediterranean restaurant with outdoor seating and lounge with walls made from driftwood woven together to create “the Birdcage”, and use of over 200 interior flooring applications. The lobby of the theater is designed like a luxury hotel lobby. The interior had full granite slab flooring, hardwood ceilings and many high-end design elements. The walls had recessed brick tiles with candle niches built in.
