Starhill Gallery: Jalan Bukit

PROJECT DETAILS



Starhill Gallery is one of Kuala Lumpur's premier shopping malls featuring an extraordinary array of luxury branded goods and fine dining restaurants. Spark's proposal deals with the reinvention of the fašade of Starhill facing Bukit Bintang as urban sculpture engaging with the public realm and the pedestrian. A new pleated skin in glass and stone inspired by the tailoring of Christian Lacroix's theatre costumes wraps the existing building to create a striking new identity for Starhill. At the road intersection a new triple height flagship pavilion for the French retailer Sephora is erected, the completed ensemble exemplifies the quality of the products on sale at Starhill; classic, well manufactured and timeless. The lightweight steel and glass fašade is the first of its kind in Malaysia; the crystalline form of the fašade and pavilion establishes a new identity for Starhill Gallery reaffirming its position as the foremost destination for luxury shopping in Southeast Asia.
