- The project was to holistically transform this important node central to Orchard Road into a state-of-the-art commercial, shopping, entertainment and residential centre to stimulate existing activities and catalyse renewal and redevelopment in this precinct.
The 9 th-storey residential terrace is designed as a tranquil environment unlike the bustling city streets below. Multi-layered lush planting is blended with carefully designed water features to create vistas that add to the relaxed feel of the generous open lawn area. Shaded pavilions are interspersed within the foliage of shade trees. Other features include a 50-metre-long lap and leisure pool, Jacuzzis, children’s pool, play area and landscape ponds. Use of natural materials in the water features and planting gives an integrated sense of intimacy, warmth and closeness to nature to the ION Orchard, Orchard Turn project.
