项目简介:
Starhill Gallery,一开始也许会让人误会它的功能,这座也许是吉隆坡最具标志性的购物中心的建筑,在以一系列特色豪华商店与高级餐厅为主打的同时,不忘在名字与外型上标识着它的与众不同。

现在看到的Starhill Gallery已经由Spark事务所对其现有的面向星星丘(吉隆坡主要购物区、娱乐区之一)的外墙进行了改造。该改造项目是由Stephen Pimbley——Spark的创始董事及新加坡广受欢迎的Clarke码头的设计者主导的。

Stephen说,“不像在吉隆坡许多临街的商场,Starhill Gallery购物中心的新外墙牢牢地与公共领域连结在一起,与星星丘产生了有价值的视觉联系。我们为Starhill Gallery购物中心设计了一个灯塔,颂扬其与城市的关系。”

Spark事务所的设计开辟了一种提供许多视觉享受的新型立面,玻璃与石板装饰的连续表皮包裹了现有建筑。新的外观类似于古代希腊和罗马的雕像身上有褶皱的“湿布料”,购物中心内部制作出售精美的礼服似乎与此辉映。固态与通透性的断裂将建筑的立面完全变换,在一片千篇一律的购物中心中赋予其独特的当代经典身份价值。

Spark事务所在Starhill Gallery购物中心的入口处用一个标志性的三层高购物亭取代了咖啡厅,该购物亭是为法国奢侈品零售商LVMH和他们的化妆品品牌Sephora准备的。Sephora在一楼处于购物中心有着水晶般外壳的主体相连。这些精致高端的设计有效地建立了Starhill Gallery购物中心的标志性身份,确认其作为东南亚最重要的奢侈品购物地之一的地位。

Spark事务所在设计中采用的石材、玻璃幕墙与轻钢结构结合的方式在马拉西亚是首创。他们的合作伙伴是曾建造卢浮宫玻璃金字塔的法国工程团队RFR。与YTL配合,Spark事务所只采用了与建筑物在吉隆坡的重要位置相匹配的优质材料,以打造美妙的街景。建筑物精心设计的复杂外壳、品牌的高品质与友人在购物中心内的特别体验产生了协同效应,令Starhill Gallery成为星星丘最闪亮的星。

Starhill Gallery is perhaps Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic shopping mall, featuring an extraordinary array of luxury shops and fine dining restaurants. Spark\'s design proposal dealt with the reinvention of the existing facade of Starhill Gallery facing Bukit Bintang. This reinvention of Starhill Gallery is designed by Stephen Pimbley, founding director of Spark and the architect behind Singapore’s hugely popular Clarke Quay.

Stephen says, “Unlike many street-facing malls in Kuala Lumpur, our new facade for Starhill Gallery is firmly engaged with the public realm and generates valuable visual connections along this section of Bukit Bintang via the heavy footfall. We have designed a beacon for Starhill Gallery that celebrates its relationship with the city.”

Spark\'s design has opened up the facade which provides a lot of visual interest via a continuous shop front that wraps the existing building in a crystalline skin of glass and stone panels. The new facade resembles the “wet drapery” of the ancient statues of Greece and Rome, and the beautifully crafted gowns on sale inside Starhill Gallery. The fractured variation of solidity and transparency transforms the street facade of the existing building entirely, giving it a new contemporary classic identity that stands out amongst the quick-fix, ubiquitous shopping mall facades of many of Starhill Gallery’s neighbours.

Spark’s lightweight steel, stone and glass facade is the first of their kind in Malaysia that embraces cutting-edge facade technology from the French engineer RFR, the team that delivered the Pyramid at the Paris Louvre.

Spark replaced the café at the entrance of Starhill Gallery with an iconic triple height shopping pavilion for the French luxury retailer LVMH and their cosmetics brand Sephora. Sephora is, in turn, connected to Starhill via a first floor bridge that pierces the new crystalline facade.

Spark, together with YTL, has deliberately crafted a complex building envelope using only the best materials that resonate with the importance of the building’s position and contribution to the streetscape of Kuala Lumpur. The synergy with high quality of the brands/products, as well as special visitor experience inside Starhill Gallery is undeniable.

Starhill Gallery’s new crystalline facade and the Sephora pavilion have effectively established an iconic new identity for Starhill Gallery, affirming its position as the foremost destination for luxury shopping in Southeast Asia.
