Parkroyal on Pickering Hotel from Singapore, by WOHA Architects (6)

Designed by WOHA Architects, Parkroyal on Pickering Hotel from Singapore is a successful example on how we can conserve and sustain nature in the center of a big city. This project is a successful symbiosis between architecture and nature, realized in a striking manner, but in the same time, integrated and sustainable.

The greenery is present and it is blooming around the hotel, trees and gardens seem to merge with the neighboring park. Parkroyal on Pickering has six landscaped gardens in fixed cantilevers at every fourth level. The intermediate floors are shaded and protected from the sun. The gardens are watered with rainwater collected and recycled and the lighting is provided by photovoltaic cells. The open-air corridors were only the most visible energy-saving effort made by the Parkroyal: around the hotel building, LED bulbs and solar panels help reduce lighting power costs by up to 20 percent. It has been estimated that the annual energy savings are enough to power approximately 680 households.

The “podium” on which the hotel is placed is an authentic piece of architectural theater where corrugated layers of concrete  supported by monumental columns, undulate across the car park and the hotel’s public areas. The architecture of the project has an organic foundation and the geometry seems to become fluid. The sustainable project design and green efforts have earned the hotel the BCA Green Mark Platinum, Singapore’s highest green rating, as well as the Solar Pioneer Award for its innovative solar energy system. Also, the hotel has won several prestigious awards for the architecture, including being named ‘Hotel of the Year “at the World Architecture News Awards.
