Singapore’s creative community will soon be thriving as one of the city's buzziest projects, Design Orchard, nears completion. Designed by Singapore-based architecture firm WOHA, the 2350 sqm green project has been under construction since early 2018, and will officially be open to the public on the 30th of January, 2019.

Located on Orchard Road, the city’s most iconic shopping avenue, the project's publicly accessible sloped rooftop park will incorporate multiple services and public areas, accentuating the design and providing up-and-coming designers with a space to create, produce, and exhibit.

The three-story structure, which is ensconced in greenery, integrates a high-end retail space on the ground floor and co-working spaces at the second and third levels. The building is tiered away from the vibrant junction to form an urban amphitheatre and event space on the roof, set against the backdrop of Orchard Road, along with a shaded pocket park.

The co-working spaces provide a nurturing environment for young designers to go from concept to production, market their products at the retail spaces below, and showcase their designs with fashion and design events at the rooftop garden amphitheatre.

The Design Orchard Building is constructed with contemporary materials such as glass, wood, concrete, and flora, along with circular openings in the off-form structural walls to ensure visual access to the shop fronts, light, and ventilation throughout the structure.
