A new luxury residential tower by architects’ PLP Architecture incorporates biophilic design by creating surrounding greenery in a lush vertical garden along Orchard Boulevard in Singapore.
The building, Park Nova, brings a new focus on modern metropolitan living and aims to redefine urban living in the garden city with its use of biophilic design.
WHAT IS BIOPHILIC DESIGN
Biophilic design is an innovative method that uses nature within interior design and architecture. Experts maintain that by bringing the natural environment into the built environment through heavy use of nature: trees, plants, lush greenery, will create a better atmosphere for occupants’ well being.
The Park Nova building includes:
- The signature luxury tower’s biophilic design has been inspired by its lush green environment in Orchard, Singapore.
- 54 apartments seamlessly marry indoor and outdoor spaces
- The building includes a variety of dedicated resident amenity spaces that promote health and wellbeing and support active lifestyles.
Drawing on the form of a butterfly, the building is elevated above the tree canopy on slender columns and features gently undulating floorplates arranged into three wings to maximise the potential for natural shading and ventilation.
