Reconstruction of a cult cinema

About the project

The former "Zhelyo Dimanov" cinema, one of the signature cinemas in the city of Stara Zagora, was reconstructed into an International Youth Centre. A complex building, hiding secrets and unexpected construction puzzles which became a real challenge to repair and revive. Dealing with an existing building structure is always tough and limits the number of materials you can use but the building became functional, good-looking, and now accommodates kids from all over Europe.
