Hotel in a garden is new Singapore feature


Rocks, greenery and luxury accommodation all combine to create a building which is a new addition to the skyline of one of  the Far East’s fastest growing cities.

The new development called Parkroyal by WOHA takes the form of a 367-room hotel in Singapore, which features large balconies and terraces covered in of tropical plants.

The company said it wanted to create a “hotel in a garden” and was influenced by natural landscapes.

“All the inspiration comes from rock formations,” said the architects. “It’s a very organic feeling that you get from the building.

“We wanted to mimic the idea of the sedimentary layer and that is actually quite obvious from the form of the various strata in the building. Each layer is grooved, so that it has more shadows and is more refined.”
