UNStudio goes vertical as they seek a solution to maximising urban living potential


UNStudio aimed high as they attempted to redefine common practice on city planning, with their Singapore situated residential tower. With an ever-burgeoning population and an intense stress on producing enough urban housing the Scotts Tower provides a logical, efficient solution to help ease these demands. Desiring to conserve space whilst maximising live, work and play areas, imaginations turned skywards as they sought out an untouched arena in which to construct.

Lead architect, Ben van Berkel, described his creation’s distinction thus: "An interesting facet of The Scotts Tower is the way that it reacts to the urban context of Singapore. Instead of the more usual means of planning a city horizontally, we have created neighbourhoods in the sky; a vertical city where each zone has its own distinct identity."

The 18,500 sq m, 32-storey building was the first completed success created under the Far East Organisation’s new SOHO brand. Containing 231 units in total, ranging from 1 bedroom apartments to 4 bedroom penthouses, the tower aims to appeal to a diverse mix of prospective buyers of varying means. One of the motivating ideals behind the project was to imbue this lone structure with the feel of a condensed district; to inspire a communal spirit. The vertical city concept saw interpretive divisions dissecting the complete into three independent scales; namely the ‘city’, the ‘neighbourhood’, and the ‘home’, whilst residential blockings provide unique bonding within all inhabitants.

The interior of many of the apartments has been purposefully left largely blank and unblemished, allowing room for individual tastes and preferences, of the buyers themselves, to take hold. Units come in differing types and scales, with no standard distribution of outdoor space either, rejecting the notion of uniformity. Whilst attaining an array of panoramic cityscape views, from personal balconies, or the shared 25th floor sky terrace, an unlikely opportunity is equally afforded to relax amongst patches of vegetation.

At the building’s peak is cultivated a small rooftop garden, for a lucky select number to enjoy. The ‘sky garden’, one of two sky frame terraces, has been introduced above the third cluster of apartments, where, with the obligatory stunning viewpoint, can be obtained free use of Jacuzzi pools, a swimming pool and a dining deck.

Available to all, including non-residents, will be an expansive extension to a nearby green area, allowing its progression right up to the tower’s base. Incorporated into this multi-layered environment will be recreational facilities, such as: a 50m lap pool with sunning deck, a children’s pool, a wellness pool, dining & BBQ pavilions and massage and gym pavilions. All clear examples of the promoted fusion of activity and social platform that runs throughout Scotts Tower.

Le Corbusier is very much an influence here, the public floor is like a modern era of the Unitee D'habitation.

Work completes on SAA Architects & Tange Associates-designed One Raffles Place Two

The counterpart to Kenzo Tange’s One Raffles Place Tower One in Singapore’s Central Business District has now been completed. Designed in a partnership between Kenzo’s son Paul Noritaka Tange of Tange Associates and SAA Architects, the sparkling form erupts from the urban scene, taking the diagonal planes of its crystalline external arrangement from the spacing of the windows in its partner building.

One Raffles Place Tower Two is a highly sustainable building, successfully achieving the Singapore Building and Construction Authority Green Mark Platinum Award, the highest rating for sustainable design in the region. A number of green building materials have been utilised in the structure, with energy-saving light fittings, photovoltaic panels, efficient central air conditioning systems and motion sensors reducing the energy demands of the building.

SAA and Tange Associates have taken the dense urban location into account during the design process as Yeo Siew Haip, SAA Managing Director, explains: “We believe that architecture goes beyond aesthetics. The design should add value to the urban environment. With its strategic location in the existing Central Business District One Raffles Place Tower Two injects a new form of urban energy at streetscape level. The overall design strategy for One Raffles Place Tower Two is to produce a landmark that not only rejuvenates Singapore’s changing cityscape but also create a pleasurable working environment for its users.”

The commercial tower continues to impact the Singapore skyline after nightfall as its façade is illuminated by an LED lighting system. The large panes of glass which define the structure’s 38 storeys light up in horizontal fashion, creating a new beacon for the Central Business District which the architects hope ‘further catalyses the transformation of the existing downtown core into a vibrant global business hub’.

Reflective design of headquarters of the Lucasfilm from Aedas

The headquarters of well-known company Lucasfilm called Singapore Headquarters is a narrow V-shaped building wrapped in glass facade and resonating with the aesthetics of popular films.

Streamlined tall building, sponsored by the international architectural studio Aedas, faces a lush green garden, situated in the center of the area proposed for the construction of the building.

Greens, stone, wood, glass - these are materials that have become the main decoration of the new large-scale headquarters.

The structure makes extensive use of advanced eco-system of power generation, heating, ventilation and irrigation of the gardens. Eight-story complex includes a place in offices and television studios, space for the development of games and television product.

Also there will be an ultra-modern cinema and theater, which will be first-run movies and conduct other cultural and recreational activities. Near the theater is located office space - directly to the company LucasFilm, as well as rental space for other businesses.

Eco-friendly structure of the very low iron content, lots of glass with a high degree of reflection, not interfering with the natural sunlight and heat, which is richly filled space of the new headquarters. The courtyard is relatively closed to the surrounding landscape.

UK architects complete breathtaking Gardens by the Bay project in Singapore

The world has been waiting with baited breath for the completion of the Gardens by the Bay scheme in Singapore and the day is nearly upon us. Conceptualised by a British design team including Grant Associates, Wilkinson Eyre, Atelier Ten, Atelier One, Land Design Studio and Thomas Matthews, the first phase of this mammoth landscape and leisure scheme has now been realised, transforming 54 hectares of reclaimed land into an educational entertainment experience.

Arguably the most recognisable feature of the £500m development is the Grant Associates-designed forest of Supertrees, a cluster of 18 structural forms which vary in height between 25 and 50 metres and act as scaffolding for a living network of climbers, epiphytes and ferns. During the day, these soaring spectacles add to the educational experience as a series of vertical gardens, but as the sun falls, they are animated by dramatic light shows and projected media.

Back in December 2011, WAN sent reporter Bronte Cullum to check up on the construction progress of this gargantuan scheme. She wrote: “The Supertrees, amongst all of the other intrepid developments of the Gardens by the Bay project, are by far the most audacious. Walking away from this capacious piece of architecture left me awed, with a nostalgic sense of wonder for the future.”

It was this ‘wow’ factor that Andrew Grant, Director of landscape architects Grant Associates, was so keen to capture in his concept: “Our brief for Gardens by the Bay was to create the most amazing tropical gardens in the world, incorporating cutting edge environmental design and sustainable development principles. We wanted to capture people’s relationship with nature and use innovative technology to create rich lifestyle, educational and recreational experiences for both local residents of Singapore and visitors from around the world.”

To fulfil the educational requirements of the brief, the team imagined a pair of immense biomes: the 1.2 hectare Flower Dome and the slightly smaller 0.8 hectare Cloud Forest Dome. Designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, the two bulbous forms encase specially-crafted environments where endangered plants and those not native to Singapore are able to grow in abundance.

There are still two phases to complete before the entire Gardens by the Bay vision is realised. Phase one saw the completion of Bay South, but there are still the Gardens of Bay East and Bay Central to finalise. Once this is seen through, the Gardens by the Bay scheme will measure an astonishing 101 hectares on Singapore’s waterfront. Bay South will open to the public on 29 June 2012.

Singapore Subordinate Courts Complex / Serie Architects + Multiply Architects

The Subordinate Courts of Singapore recently announced the proposal by Serie Architects and Multiply Architects as the winning design for their new courts complex. Their design features an innovative two tower strategy in which one tower is dedicated to the criminal courtrooms and the other to the judges’ chambers and support functions. The two towers are linked by a series of foot bridges that enable the controlled circulation necessary for the courtroom process. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The courtroom tower is an open frame supporting a series of shared terraces on which the courtrooms are placed: it has no external facade. In a metaphorical sense, this represents the openness and impartiality of the judicial process. The open terraces feature planting and are designed to allow views across the city thereby reinforcing the civic role of the building.

The existing Subordinate Courts building (i.e. Octagon), built in the 1970s, will be refurbished and will house 35,000sqm of family and juvenile courts and support functions. The two new 150m high towers will have an area of 110,000sqm and will accommodate criminal courts.

Construction is scheduled to begin next year and to be completed in 2019. The open design competition jury was headed up by internationally acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie. In a joint statement, the jury praised the ‘simple but dignified’ design which ‘complements the conserved octagon without trying to outshine it.’

Chris Lee, Principal at Serie Architects, comments, ‘the relationship between the city and its civic buildings was our primary interest for this project. The new Subordinate Courts Complex should be a building that is symbolically open and accessible to the public. The design language should be readily understood by all Singaporeans.’

Innovative engineering solutions for flood and water supply are helping make Singapore fit for the future

The Kallang River Restoration is a sustainable engineering project which addresses water supply and flood protection while creating spaces for people and nature in the city. Bioengineering was used to ecologically restore the river, significantly increasing flood capacity and improving water quality.

Singapore has no natural water aquifers; the Kallang River is major drinking water supply component. Whereas before the concrete channel had a maximum width of 24 m at flood capacity, the river can now spread to 100 m thanks to the re-profiled bioengineered cross-sections. Natural looking meadows are in fact innovative, reinforced vegetation technology. Local residents have a larger park with access to the river, Singapore's National Water Agency has more water in better quality.

The use of bioengineering to stabilize the river banks is a first for Singapore and a new reference for soil stabilisation in the tropics. A 60 m test reach was constructed at one of the side drains into the park. 10 different soil bioengineering technologies were systematically tested. Seven were then selected for use along the main river. These include fascines, rip-rap with cuttings, geotextile wrapped soil-lifts, brush mattresses with fascines, reed rolls, planted gabions and geotextile with plantings.

Hydraulic modelling allowed the riverbanks to be reinforced only at the points where this is needed, reducing construction costs. The creation of diverse flow patterns characteristic of natural river systems makes the new river ecologically resilient; the park's biodiversity increased by 30%. The cost efficiency, simple technology and eco-social benefits of this project make it a pilot reference for sustainable water engineering for developing and developed countries alike.
