Everyone's association with the shape of a star shape comes down to similar configurations, directly proportional lines and same angle attributes. However, the designers break this long lived convention, epitomizing the concept of stars within every corner of the cinema. Upon arrival of main lobby, scattered pieces of star patterns disguise among background. The uncustomary forms of star patterns further trigger people's imagination. The stones and tiles contour the impression of a "stars", without actualizing the definite form of it. By breaking up and rebuilding, framework of the "star" reformulates in the audience's head.

Wedges of wall visualize the 3D construction of a star. Unlike evenly distributed squares, stars comprise of uneven lines and angles. Imagine turning a star into pod vessels, then shrink or elongate each angle. Through 3D actualization, the wall bestows a various "star" feeling. As stars illuminate and sparkle in the dark, the designers simulate the texture with silver colored metals whereas the background remains dark. This enormous contrast further attributes to the brightness of stars.
Auditorium prolongs the shape of a star. The walls are made up of layers and layers of 3D panels, which reflect the pattern of a star by light and shades.
Again, the designers show their inventiveness by hiding the star message, without actually showing the normal star pattern. Lines intersecting with each other, configuring shapes with various angles on the carpet, which matches with the star patterns on the seats.
Designers came up with two other designs which hook tightly to the"star" theme. The first one depicts five straight lines intersecting each other at an intersection point, also portrays a different form of how Stars could be conveyed in various shapes and patterns. Whereas the other one filled with 3D elongated star pillar forms being dissected into different pieces.
