Singapore’s Sky High Vertical Garden Opens To The Public - Park Royal Singapore on Pickering Street
"The design reflects the city’s surrounding streetscape, housing hotel and office space in a courtyard-inspired design. Labeled a “building-as-garden” concept, the Park Royal features a contoured tower podium from pre-cast concrete that acts as garden terraces concealing an opening to a car park and creating a vertical extension of dramatic greenery.
The impressive foliage could be mistaken for part of the adjacent Hong Lim Park, while other sustainable elements of the hotel include the use of automatic light, rain and motion sensors and integrated rainwater collection, irrigation and recycling technology.
Plants are not only found on the exterior façade but feature prominently throughout the naturally lit interiors. The decor complements the greenery, with warm, nature-inspired shades and textures worked into light and dark wood, pebbles and water features. “
