Sky Gardens Singapore

Convening sustainability with design, PARKROYAL of Singapore’s Pickering Hotel is truly a sight to behold. WOHA Architects desifned the site, which features six “sky gardens” cantilevered at every fourth level between the blocks of guest rooms. In other words, this isn’t a hotel with a garden; it’s a hotel in a garden.

While obviously easy on the eyes, the design is entirely functional. The concept incorporates a number of energy-saving features, including “zero-energy” sky gardens and solar energy systems, which have won the design several awards.

The hotel cost $350 million to build, and surrounding the 367-room facility are over 161,000 square feet of cascading greenery, reflecting pools, waterfalls and planter walls, making the green space more than twice the size of its land area.
