State of the art technology within Victorian envelope 

The design for the Kino, Hawkhurst addresses the challenge of providing a stylish and comfortable environment for enjoying film within the constraints of a listed church hall and a phenomenology tight budget. The auditorium is an insertion within the church hall and has been detailed to address the acoustic and technical requirements of a cinema without damage to the original fabric of the building. If the cinema ceased to operate within the hall, it could be stripped out to reveal the original painted timber boarded ceiling and walls, elaborately detailed window frames and reveals and timber trusses. The interior design of gridded square wall panels is broadly based on a painting by Paul Klee, and the functional requirements of the space serve an aesthetic idea.
