Bon Accord Cinema, Aberdeen
We have a long-standing relationship with our client Capreon and have supported them in varying types of projects in the Bon Accord Centre in Aberdeen. The latest project, which has secured Planning consent, is a four-screen cinema development.
This project is technically and acoustically challenging: it involves integrating the cinema auditoria into the existing building and meeting the complex requirements of a live construction project on a restricted city centre site within an operational shopping centre.
The new Cinema will present an outward-facing public entrance via a repurposed courtyard service space; this, in turn, links back to the public area via a refurbished ’pend ’or passageway. Our design aims to knit the tenant’s design aspirations for the Cinema into the existing centre but at the same time, create a spacious new public approach to the entrance.
