The new Ster Century building is an example of a modern multifunctional entertainment center. The building is constructed next to a Municipal Park, and thus, extends the local civic center.
The land plot is of a 3.180m² area. The building is composed of five underground parking levels, 427 parking places, 2 retail levels (one underground and one on ground floor), 2 levels comprising 10 multiplex cinemas of a total capacity of 1567 seats, a mezzanine used for offices, 2 levels for mechanical installations plus 2 levels of projection rooms. The total building height (over ground) is 23m.
The building structure is of concrete with the exception of the cinema tribunes which are steel construction. The most updated HVAC systems have been applied and the fire fighting systems have been designed according to the most strict regulations, constructed with the most inflammable materials and controlled by the building BMS system. Eight escalators and four lifts are provided along with 5 escape staircases to allow easy access and evacuation of all floor levels. A 1600KVA electricity substation is installed in the basement.
Aluminum tube louvers cover the curbed elevations serving also as shades to the interior spaces. Six circular concrete pillars serve as lift wells cladded with metal panels.
