Vertical city concept designed for Singapore’s cultural hub. The Tower attempts to redefine the way architects approach modern high-rise residential architecture by mechanically engineering public spaces in an aesthetically futuristic way. Designers in Orlando and San Francisco would love this awesome design. What an awesome industrial design. I want to live here!
Neighborhoods in the Sky
The concept of The Tower is that of a vertical city incorporating a variety of residence types and scales. In addition, outdoor green areas in the form of sky terraces, penthouse roof gardens and individual terraces form an important element of the industrial design. The vertical city concept is interpreted on the tower in three scales; the “city”, the “neighborhood” and the “home”. The vertical frame organizes the tower architecturally in an urban manner. The frame affords the tower the vertical city effect by dividing the four residential clusters into different neighborhoods. The sky frames – at the lobby (Level 1 & Level 2) and sky terrace (Level 25) – organize the amenity spaces and green areas of the tower.
The four prototyping residential homes are each designed for customized living. Individual identity is given to each unit by means of type, scale, distribution and articulation of outdoor space, along with the possibility for personalization of the interior layout; by means of a semi-white plan, residents will be given the freedom to configure their personal living spaces according to their creative lifestyles and aspirations.
Gardens, recreation and Sky Frames
The nearby garden area to the West of the tower is extended into The Tower site initially by means of a ground level landscape concept. This ground level invention incorporates a multi-layered stylish environment which links together the different zones and recreational facilities available to the residents. Recreational facilities within the gardens include a 50 meter lap pool with sunning deck, a children’s pool, a wellness pool, dining & BBQ pavilions, a meeting pavilion and massage and gym pavilions.
