From a simple glass rectangle design to best looking and many of the tallest skyscrapers, Kohn Pederson Fox (KPF) are working well. One of its most recent project is a 175-m (574 ft) tall tower in Singapore with and an eye-catching design and significant of greenery and a publicly accessible garden.
A law was passed by Singapore authorities back in 2014 that any greenery lost because of a new development must be replaced with equal publicly accessible greenery that has resulted in lush projects like the Kampung Admiratly and Oasis Terraces.
Robinson Tower is a 24000 sq m (259,400 sq ft) project situated on V-shaped plot, which was created in association with A61 consisting of two main parts both with glazed facades.
Topped by rooftop garden and terrace space, the tower is anchored by a large retail podium. There are 20 office floor spaces in its interior with pockets of greenery and large indoor garden filled with bushes and trees at the top. Not only this there is also another garden area in the atrium.
“At its core, this project presented the overlapping challenges of planning Class-A office space on an irregular site with environmental checks,” says Bruce Fisher, KPF Design Director. “However, these conditions ultimately drove the design’s success, all the while capitalizing on the expanse of Robinson Road’s visual corridor. The dynamic tower frees itself from the canyon of stoic facades, integrating green space at unique vantage points and ultimately cultivating the public realm alongside a boutique, mixed-use.
