V on Shenton Complex


UNStudio has designed the new UIC complex, ”V on Shenton,” in the heart of Singapore’s central business district.
V on Shenton Complex
The former UIC building held the title of Singapore’s tallest building for two years after its completion in 1973 and was part of an important collection of towers located along Shenton Way in the heart of Singapore's central business district. Today, the area is undergoing rejuvenation and transformation, and V on Shenton forms part of this redevelopment.
The twin towers of the development are comprised of a 23-story office building and a 53-story residential tower, with the dual programming of the building highlighted through its massing. The office tower corresponds to the scale of the surrounding buildings and the street, while the residential tower rises up to distinguish itself from the neighboring buildings. Above the third sky lobby, the residential tower subtly displays its split core.

The basic shape of the hexagon is used to create patterns that increase the performance of the twin towers’ façades with angles and shading devices that are responsive to the climatic conditions of Singapore. Along with systematic material variations, these geometric panels add texture and cohesion to the building, while reflecting light and pocketing shade.

Each tower is framed by chamfers, a line that unifies the composition of the residential tower, the office tower, and the plinth. During the daytime the chamfer appears smooth in contrast to the textured surfaces of the towers, and at night the chamfer lights up as a continuous line framing the building.
The office lobby is divided into a reception area and a large café, which extends along the view corridor to create a lively atmosphere in the public areas. The sky lobbies and the sky garden will provide 360-degree views of Singapore. The most ample and diverse of the three sky gardens covers the entire eighth story of the development. (via CTBUH)
