The revitalization of downtown Sunnyvale includes an entertainment block diagonally across from Redwood Square, the social heart of the city.
This new block features a specialty market and luxury multiscreen theater. The primary design goal for this building was to draw people in from the town plaza adjacent to the site. This was done by shifting the entrance of the lobby closer to the corner for better access and adding a dramatic two-story glass entrance. The expansive view energizes visitors as they overlook outdoor seating and bustling activity in the square.
The bold architectural forms at the corner display a more contemporary recall of historic Theater marquees and features a varied palette of exterior materials including metal panels and grills, wood soffits and walls, and accent colored stained glass windows all accented by varying lighting concepts.
