V on Shenton | 237m | 123m|Pro

news :

237m residential tower and 123m office tower

UN Studio Designs New UIC Building ‘V on Shenton’ in Singapore











Data

Client: UIC Investments (Properties) Pte Ltd
Location: No. 5 Shenton Way, UIC Building, Singapore
Building surface: 85.507 m2
Building volume: residential tower 237m height; office tower 123m height
Building site: 6778 m2
Programme: commercial and residential redevelopment.
Status: In progress

http://www.unstudio.com/projects/v-on-shenton


The part-residential, part-office tower in Singapore was designed by UN Studio. In line with their consistent preocupation with responsive cladding systems, the ’V on Shenton’ tower has a facade that comprises several varying textures that depend on program and Singapore’s climatic conditions. Soft-edged and with a highly detailed envelope, the building communicates with the existing architecture of Singapore’s Central Business District, where the proposed building site is located.

The building breaks to create a lower scale office section – which responds to the contextual heights of similar buildings – while the residential tower rises above to distinguish itself from the neighboring buildings. The massing is lined by chamfers which give a definite edge and frame the building; this line, which appears smooth in contrast to the textured surfaces of the towers, illuminates in the evening.

Using hexagon modules, the design increases the performance of the facades with angles and shading devices that are responsive to the climatic conditions of Singapore. The whole structure becomes a complex interface of constantly changing visual and functional effects, such as colored side lighting and achieving deep texture with the volumetric balconies.

The tower features sky lobbies and a sky garden. Providing spectacular views of the city, they are an integral part of the tower’s sustainability. These lush green spaces provide a refuge from the city with the climate and vegetation naturally providing fresher, cleaner air.

The cruise centre has welcomed its first ship.

New International Cruise Terminal welcomes first ship
By Wayne Chan | Posted: 26 May 2012 1319 hrs


SINGAPORE: Singapore's new International Cruise Terminal on Saturday welcomed its first ship.

Voyager of the Seas, the biggest cruise ship ever to be based in Singapore and Asia, arrived at 6am with over 3,000 international guests.

The ship, which has 15 decks, is 311 metres long and weighs 138,000 tonnes.

It can take some 3,800 guests and has a crew of more than 1,150.

The cruise ship is also the first in the world with an ice skating rink on board. Apart from learning how to skate from professionals, guests on the ship can also watch ice shows in this theatre, which can sit up to 700 people.

The ship's operator Royal Caribbean International offers cruises directly from Singapore to Asian cities like Kuala Lumpur, Phuket, Shanghai, and Xiamen.

It also announced that the Vogayer's sister ship, the Mariner of the Seas, will be joining it in Asia in 2013.

While 18 million people are expected to take a cruise this year, less than 10 per cent of them will come from Asia. However, this could change with better infrastructure in the region.

Adam Goldstein, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, said: "When they come to Indonesia, to Thailand, to Malaysia, to Vietnam, we are looking for infrastructure that can support ships of this size - 3,000 customers at a time. There are so many interesting experiences to have in Asia, but the infrastructure has to support the experience."

Voyager of the Seas is expected to leave Singapore for its maiden voyage in Asia on Saturday night.

S'pore's cruise landscape set to grow: STB

SINGAPORE: The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) said the cruise landscape is set to grow in 2012 to 2013, with major cruise lines either increasing their presence in Southeast Asia or deploying new vessels to Singapore.

Adding credence to the growth potential is Costa Cruises.

Europe's number one cruise company is the first to enter the Asian market. Tapping on the region's growth potential, it now offers cruise itineraries out of Singapore into Malaysia and Thailand.

It is also working with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Changi Airport Group (CAG) to develop Singapore as a cruise hub in Asia, expanding into new markets which include Hong Kong, Japan, India and China.

STB said its vision is supported by Singapore's investment in cruise centres (Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore and Singapore Cruise Centre), and Changi Airport's strong connectivity to over 200 cities worldwide.

Gardens by the Bay is World Building of the Year

Posted - 5 Oct 2012
http://www.worldarchitecturefestival...cfm?newsId=293



Singapore's Gardens by the Bay has won the top prize at WAF, World Building of the Year, on it's home territory.

Officially the prize went to Wilkinson Eyre Architects for the design of the Cooled Conservatories, but festival director Paul Finch stressed at the awards ceremony that this was a magnificent team effort and that the whole team should be recognised - in addition to the architect, the landscape architect Grant Associates and engineers Atelier One and Atelier Ten.

Finch said, 'Choosing a winner was a tough decision, but the winner is a scheme of the highest quality. The jury was insistent that the project should be recognised in the round and that all the design team should have recognition.'

He continued, 'A first-rate client had a vision and a strategy.The result is not an experimental building but its ventilation strategy has an experimental component. In a globalised environment, there is so much interest in how we deal with density and this combination of urbanism with a garden that is both an attraction and nature is a wonderful solution.

'If they can cool these glasshouses through natural cooling, we should ask why it can't be done in other buildings?'
