The Sauvenière cinema complex, in central Liège, consists of:

  • a cinema with four screens together accounting for 800 seats and
  • a brasserie, a relaxation area where concerts are also held.

The cinema is built on a complex site, sandwiched between a 1930s swimming pool and a tertiary building.

The main volume is concentrated on the street side to free up a plot in the core of the building for an open-air theatre.

On the street side, the building protrudes over the pavement and invites spectators to enter.

The interface between the building and the public space is defined by the movement of spectators around the concrete magnitude formed by four movie theatres.

An urban situation and acoustic requirements demanded a structure made of concrete. The formal potential of the material is exploited throughout the building by leaving it unworked in many places. The façade is covered with a white coating, emphasising the volume and continuity with the interior.

As executive architects, we help the designing architects with all construction technical and financial issues, so that they can fully focus on the design.

We also monitor the implementation and ensure that the objectives and plan are always crystal clear for all partners, so that together we can realise our dreams.
