The Starhill Gallery building is a statement-making shopping center. In place of typical brick and mortar is a crystalline facade that is stunningly futuristic. Beautifully faceted, it was designed by Stephen Pimbley of Sparch Design Studio and built in Kuala Lumpur.
Home to luxury shops and fine dining restaurants, the Starhill Gallery shopping mall "is firmly engaged with the public realm and generates valuable visual connections along this section of Bukit Bintang via the heavy footfall," as described by Pimbley. Inspired by the 'wet drapery' of ancient Greek and Roman statues, the Starhill Gallery is a balance between solidity and transparency.
The Starhill Gallery shopping center is constructed out of lightweight steel, stone and glass facade. The use of high-quality materials reflects the brands found inside the mall.
