The Singapore EDITION and Boulevard 88
Designed for high density within an urban context, the building is broken down into smaller ‘urban building blocks’ to create premium living space for the entire development. The residential towers are lifted high above Orchard Boulevard on tall columns, raising the lowest level of residential units above the hotel and providing unobstructed views in all directions.
The architectural character of the development is defined by multiple skybridges and gardens. A bridge spanning the top of the 25 story residential towers creates a dramatic ‘urban window’. The bridge is replete with swimming pools and indoor-outdoor garden amenities exclusive for residents. A communal terrace between the hotel and towers provides an active sun deck, outdoor lounge and 50-meter swimming pool within a grove of mature shade trees. Below, the hotel is arranged as a ‘U’ plan around a lushly planted sunken garden, flanked by landscaped terraces on all sides. All the hotel functions –lobby, restaurants, bars, pre-event spaces and ballrooms have direct views into the central garden.
