in the 20th arrondissement on the eastern periphery of paris, the ‘étoile lilas cinema’ has become a new addition to transform the outskirt development. completed by parisian firm hardel & le bihan, the structure contributes to the lack of theaters and activates the renovated neighborhood by relating to the encompassing neighborhood’s housing, activities and parks. a low profile volume at ground level contains street level shops for passersby. beginning at ground level, a ramping corridor enclosed with transparent glazing is visible from the surrounding context and leads visitors to the public areas above the base.

 

the enclosed path projects from the black monolithic exterior, passing an outdoor terrace with elevated panoramas of the area. a labyrinthine garden generates playful micro-spaces for open-air projections, parties and events. the corridor continues to ascend, wrapping the perimeter wall of the tall block which rests above its retail base. the solid, black facade conceals the stacked screening rooms but subtle shifts within the floor plates defines their extents.
