Within Singapore’s prestigious Bukit Timah district, this highly prized location had a special character of rolling topography, surrounded by mixed public housing and lower rise neighbourhoods. With the removal of outmoded developments the ground became much more visible and exposed significant level changes. This offered both opportunities and challenges to creating an iconic landscape for the futuristic Zaha Hadid designed residential enclave.
Meeting the challenges of design vision, site and programme ICN mediated a series of contrasting values; strong architectural lines with useable people spaces, and site levels with unique new 3-dimensional forms. The landscape of d’Leedon is expressed in distinct bands; rock, forest, water and meadow, responding to site topography and relating back to the flower shaped towers. Each band has a different character and ambience, created by distinctive plant species and encapsulating special amenity clusters for outdoor living.
