Parkroyal Collection Pickering

At home in central Singapore, between the central business district and Chinatown, the Parkroyal Collection Pickering captures passersbys’ attention with its striking lush, green terraces. The project is a study of how we can not only conserve our greenery in a built-up high-rise city centre but multiply it in a manner that is architecturally striking, integrated and sustainable.

Inspired by Hong Lim Park, which is located next to the site, rice terraces and the topography of natural landscapes, the building brings 15,000 square metres of greenery – around double the area of the site – back into the city. Every one of the 367 guest rooms offers a tropical garden view from its windows.

The passive strategies such as naturally ventilated corridors, solar-powered irrigation, rain water retention and sun shading have helped this project to achieve Singapore’s Green Mark Platinum rating, the nation’s highest environmental certification.
