The World in the Play—Palace Cinemas, Shenzhen Raffles City

The layout refers to the structure of storytelling: setup, conflict and resolution. Paper symbolising the source of creation is expressed through large arcs and soft, warm lighting, representing a roll of manuscript floating in midair. Curves in the suspended ceiling are accentuated by recessed lighting, leading moviegoers through the lobby to the cinema hall. Ornate marble flooring adds a dash of sophistication in contrast to the plain white ceiling.
