“Frugal architecture”, local cinema
It is Toulouse society, Cinema ID who was responsible for constructing the building with the firm of architecture Encore Happy. Founding president son, Henri Maître told us about the project a few months ago:
“It’s a trendy project with a building with frugal architecture that uses local materials such as compacted earth. In the spirit, this project is totally in phase with our philosophy which leads us to carry out projects which propose a complementary offer to the large multiplexes of the periphery. Indeed, we need large complexes, but we also need a complementary offer with cinemas accessible to all budgets, in town centers and in medium-sized towns ”.
