Entry Description

The Mirage Cinema on Bolshoi is a new space on the Bolshoi Prospekt of the Petrograd Side in St Petersburg; it has emerged as part of the rethinking of an iconic and historically important urban location. All implemented solutions are unique within the existing building, which contained many historical and cultural layers, thus, an important task was to create a new open space while maintaining the spirit of the place. Mirage on Bolshoi is a new reimagined space, not only visually but also structurally, with a careful treatment of the history and importance of the location.
