Rishon LeZion, Israel
Completed in 2012
I.T Theatres 2004 ltd
This mega entertainment complex, located in a metropolitan sports and recreation compound in western Rishon LeZion, lies on the bank of an artificial lake and faces an amusement park not far from the city's beach.
Yes Planet Rishon LeZion consists of 24 theatres, including an IMAX theatre, a special effects 4D theatre, four VIP theatres and two multi-purpose halls. The food courts and coffee shops lie in an adjacent, smaller structure, a division that aided the design team’s control of the building’s size and blends the project naturally with the surrounding lake and park.
The opaque exterior skin of colored glass combined with bands of LED lighting creates a dynamic façade for this premier entertainment complex.
