The Star Retail & cultural by Andrew Bromberg of Aedas

Home > Winners > #32794


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Star

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Retail & cultural

INSPIRATION:
Faceted glass fissures dissolve big masses and create a dynamic composition of positive and negative spaces as well as a sense of balance. The south elevation is completely opened up and its facilities are clearly visible from outside. The building is an organic object opening to public discovery. One can crawl under, move through and transverse around the complex via a series of ramps, escalators, terraces and public gardens; as if the civic activities have shaped the inside of the complex.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design for The Star celebrates the rich and diverse happenings inside the building with a multi-faceted, permeable and dynamic design, blurring the boundaries between public and private realms as well as retail and cultural components. The development comprises The Star Performing Arts Centre with a 5,000-seat auditorium and The Star Vista with an open air mall. Together they provide a premier entertainment, lifestyle and retail experience to the community.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The site is located within the larger one-north masterplan at Buona Vista, Singapore, which was established to create a regional centre for a wide variety of civic and cultural activities and promote innovation and creativity. In keeping with one-north’s bold vision it was paramount that the architectural response to the client’s brief married the functional and technical requirements of an iconic architectural form.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Singapore

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The entire development utilizes a high performance triple glazed glass system with a fiberglass interlay to significantly reduce solar heating and provide a translucent appearance. The structure from Level 3 onwards consists of about 11,000 tons of structural steel. Due to the irregular shapes, long spans and high floor to floor heights, lifting of large beam and truss assemblies was envisaged and planned for. The façade materials were fabricated in China.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
- Site Area: 62,000sq m - Gross Area: 62,000 sq m (24,000 sq m (Retail) / 38,000 sq m (Civic)) - Height: 75m

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The Star is first and foremost a social building. Its design aims to provide a welcoming social interface for the local neighborhood through the publicly accessible forecourt and retail areas. A series of climate ameliorated outdoor spaces that accentuate natural air movement has been created to protect visitors against Singapore’s tropical rain and sun while at the same time providing outdoor patrons physiological cooling. Canopies are installed to provide shelter from direct sun and rain.

CHALLENGE:
The blurring the boundaries between public and private realms as well as retail and cultural components, and the creation of comfortable open air spaces in a tropical city require creativity. To avoid confining and air conditioning public spaces as in many other parts of Singapore, the form of the building is shaped to collect prevailing northerly and southerly breezes and accelerate through the outdoor spaces.
