South Beach Residences, which is part of The South Beach development, includes the restoration of four conservation buildings – the former Non-Commissioned Officers’ (NCO) Club built in 1952 and three 1930s army blocks of the former Beach Road Camp. Conceived as a sustainable urban quarter, the project combines new construction with the restoration of existing buildings, and brings together places to live and work with shops, cafes, restaurants, a hotel and new public spaces. A wide landscaped pedestrian avenue – a green spine – weaves through the site and is protected by a large canopy, which shelters the light-filled spaces beneath from the extremes of the tropical climate.
Canopy Ribbons for South Beach Residences
The South Beach development adopts an environmentally friendly design approach and green technologies that are specially adapted to our tropical climate. Designed by British architectural firm Foster and Partners, a key feature of the winning design is a large “environmental filter” canopy ribbons of steel and aluminium louvres flex above the primary circulation routes and public spaces and dip near the edges to meet the Beach Road buildings. The ribbons are supported by slender pillars and rise up the exposed east and west elevations of the towers to form a series of vertical louvres, which are carefully angled to encourage natural ventilation.
South Beach Residences at Beach Road South Beach Singapore
South Beach Residences is strategically located in the heart of the City’s Downtown area. This prestigious and luxurious mixed development will feature 2 grand hotels, premium offices, exquisite retail shops and exclusive city residences. Continuing the Singaporean ideal of the ‘city in a garden’, the buildings incorporate densely planted sky gardens, with uninterrupted views of the Central Business District. The treatment of the perimeter buildings is sensitive to the scale of the nineteenth century Raffles Hotel on the opposite side of the street – the four adjacent former military buildings along Beach Road are carefully restored and interspersed by conserved mature trees.
Located right next to Esplanade MRT, South Beach Residences has direct access from the basement level into the station concourse. This provides direct and convenient access from the development to the island-wide rail system. Served directly by a number of major roads, South Beach enjoys easy access to other key districts within the city as well as to the rest of Singapore. South Beach Singapore, South Beach Singapore
