Appreciation towards WOHA for providing the following description:

WOHA所设计的Oasia酒店耸立在新加坡高楼云集的中央商务区之中,为热带城市土地利用集约化设计树立了新的典范。与在气候温和的西方国家演变而成的、以通透玻璃幕墙为立面的封闭型摩天大楼原型所不同,这座位于炎热地区的塔楼充满了生机,为摩天大楼设计提供了一种新思路。

A verdant tower of green in the heart of Singapore’s dense Central Business District (CBD), Oasia Hotel Downtown is a prototype of land use intensification for the urban tropics. Unlike the sleek and sealed skyscrapers that evolved out of the temperate west, this tropical “living tower” offers an alternative image to the sleek technology of the genre.

WOHA将建筑划分为了数个带有专属空中花园的段落,以呼应其办公、酒店与会所三种截然不同的功能。尽管位于城市密度极高的中心区域,这些穿插在不同高度之上的开阔“地平面”空间仍为使用者带来了数之不尽的休闲娱乐、社会交往的可能性。

In response to the brief for distinct Offices, Hotel & Club rooms, WOHA created a series of different strata, each with its own sky garden. These additional “ground” levels allow generous public areas for recreation and social interaction throughout the high-rise, despite the inner city high density location.

内切的室外空间在建筑体量内部创造了充满生机与变化的专属景观,使得高楼环抱中的建筑无需过度依赖于外部城市环境带来的视觉景观效果。空中花园是城市中的开阔露台,层层叠落、为下层空间投下阴凉,相邻而立的巨大开口则为让建筑内外在视觉与空间上皆连为一体。微风通过开口轻抚过室内空间,带来流动的新鲜空气,生机勃勃的绿意沐浴在阳光之中,高效、舒适而洋溢着热带风情的公共空间取代了往常封闭而严重依赖于空调调节温度的室内空间而存在。

Closely overlooked by surrounding towers, the tower carves out its own internal spaces and dynamic views instead of relying on external vistas for visual interest. Each sky garden is treated as an urban scale verandah, sheltered at high level by the preceding sky garden and open sided for formal and visual transparency. The openness also allows breezes to pass through the building for good cross-ventilation. In this way, the public areas become functional, comfortable, tropical spaces with greenery, natural light and fresh air instead of enclosed, internalised air conditioned spaces.

而无论室内亦或室外空间,景观的用途被进一步扩展,成为了立面建筑材料中不可或缺的一部分。建筑整体的绿色容积率高达1100%,当仁不让成为了鸟类与野生动物栖息繁衍的天堂,将生态多样性带回城市的中心地带,同时也有效地弥补了与周边10座建筑组成的小区域内毫无绿色空间的尴尬局面。在鲜红的铝制金属网的映衬之下,21种攀缘植被的显得青翠欲滴,五彩缤纷的花果夹杂其中,为鸟类与昆虫提供了充沛的食物。在未来,这些植被将根据光照、隐蔽度与风力条件占据最适于其生长的空间,逐渐形成色彩、纹理相异,如马赛克般的立面效果。而屋顶空间同样延续了WOHA独特的设计手法,充满了绿意、生机与多样性。

Landscaping is used extensively as an architectural surface treatment and forms a major part of the development’s material palette both internally and externally. Achieving an overall Green Plot Ratio of 1,100%, the tower is conceived as a haven for birds and animals, reintroducing biodiversity into the city. This quantum of green is an exciting number, as it effectively compensates for the lack of green in 10 surrounding buildings. The tower’s red aluminum mesh cladding is designed as a backdrop that reveals itself in between 21 different species of creepers, with colourful flowers interspersed among green leaves, providing food for the birds and insects. The creepers will form a mosaic with each type taking over its most suitable conditions of light, shade and wind. Instead of a flat roof, the skyscraper is crowned with a tropical bower; floral, diverse, soft and alive.

21层和27的游泳池使用了Chroma系列的AGROB BUCHTAL瓷砖。酒店中的每个泳池都各具特点。6层的泳池是健身房的一部分;21层的泳池则是休闲俱乐部的延伸。泳池底部的人字形图案以浅蓝色和深蓝色瓷砖铺设,左右两侧是浅水池,客人们可以一边品味鸡尾酒一边享受池水的清凉。

For the pools on the 21st and 27th floor, she has used AGROB BUCHTAL tiles from the Chroma series. Each pool has a different character. The pool on the sixth floor is part of a gym; on the 21th floor, the pool acts as a stylish extension of the lounge club. Left and right of the pool itself, which is tiled in a light and dark blue chevron pattern, is a wading pool, just deep enough to get your feet wet while sipping a cocktail.

屋顶泳池分为两个部分,位于屋顶餐厅的两侧。与大多数酒店以观景为主的屋顶露台不同,在这里,城市的天际线几乎完全隐藏在植物的屏障之后。这一做法突显出WOHA不寻常的设计理念。屋顶不再是一个用于观景的平台,它成为了一个意料之外的、使人感到亲切与宁静的场所,使人们暂时逃离城市的喧嚣。

The rooftop pool consists of two parts, on either side of the rooftop restaurant. Unlike most rooftop amenities in hotels, which are all about the panorama, here the city’s skyline is almost completely concealed by the vegetated screen. This underlines the unconventionality of WOHA’s architecture. Instead of a view, this rooftop offers a place of unexpected intimacy and tranquillity, a surprisingly oasitic escape from the bustle of the city.
