ION Orchard, Singapore designed by Benoy
The award-winning ION Orchard comprises a 125,000m² retail centre, art gallery, leisure deck and a luxurious residential tower over eight levels, crowned by an Observation Deck, offering 360° views. This exciting new development was an undertaking of significant national importance for Singapore and since opening in 2009 it has become a landmark retail icon. Blending form with function, the tower’s design was an exercise in simplicity, efficiency and sustainability and now delivers an iconic contribution to the Singapore skyline. The scheme offers plenty of public space, strong pedestrian thoroughfares and a design that balances striking aesthetics with
commercial viability. Media expression is an important component of the design. Integrating the latest LED display technology, the façade was transformed into a communicative face, injecting energy and activity into the public realm.
