Description
An award-winning design where the challenge posed to the design team was to revitalize a building that has undergone many construction alterations (A&A) that created an undesirable atmosphere for rentals. By creating a meaningful space in the external atrium using vertical gardening, the design built a vibrant and pleasant environment. Upon completion of the project, the client has reported that almost all its rented space has been successfully leased out to tenants.

  • An award-winning design where the challenge posed to the design team was to revitalize a building that has undergone many construction alterations (A&A) that created an undesirable atmosphere for rentals. This building is located within a prime area of Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD), along the 158 Cecil Street.

    Constructed on the design concept of a ‘hanging garden’, all horizontal landscape areas within the building were removed other than the existing half round planters stretching over the 7-storey atrium. Existing planters were reinstated with plants draping over the edges. Plants were also drooped from the newly created walkway planters along either side of the beams. Vertical green walls were also incorporated on the existing end walls and columns. From the second to the ninth-storey, both ends of the building and the back of each structural column are also covered with green walls, creating a vertical garden with a festoon of potted plants.

    By creating a meaningful space in the external atrium using vertical gardening, the design built a vibrant and pleasant environment. Upon completion of the project, the client has reported that almost all its rented space has been successfully leased out to tenants.
