Re-imagining the original orchards and reflecting growth from seed to tree, the amorphous cladding and organic design evokes a new energy and spirit. Boasting one of the largest sheltered public space and media wall, it has become the “centre of gravity” in Singapore’s shopping belt.

The team went beyond addressing the challenge of seamless integration with surrounding buildings to redefining the pedestrian experience with new internal and external urban spaces. Lush landscaping was introduced, including a six metre green wall. Throughout the construction, the underground train station remained operational.
