This new local headquarter building and research center of a leading international company is located near the Kallang River in Singapore. The main volume is "floating" over a grid of regular pillars, defining a covered space welcoming users and visitors. The first storey volume is detached from the upper tower, with a void in-between where the naturally ventilated car park is placed.
The rigorous massing concept follows a simple and functional floor plan, with a central spine containing vertical circulation, common toilets, mechanical rooms and an airwell bringing natural light into the common circulation areas.
The project will be a showcase of the company capabilities and products, related to automation, robotics and green energy.
Construction is currently ongoing.
