“The building is well-planned and executed to a high level of polish and detail. The jury particularly liked the lofty and daylight-filled public atrium, which provides an entrance at a generous civic scale.”
JTC is a local government authority in Singapore dedicated to development of technology parks and community-centered industries that grow in harmony with local culture and environment. It was natural for JTC’s new headquarters building to embody a spirit of community focus and forward thinking.
Open and transparent, the building removes the barriers presented by more traditional civic facades. Street-level arcaded walks, retail space and a covered drop-off invite pedestrians into daylight-filled atriums that speak to Singapore’s reputation as Asia’s “Garden City.”
Design elements include contemporary interpretations of traditional Singaporean features such as layered verandas, slatted screens, courtyards and sunshades. A top-floor observation deck offers panoramic views of the technology-based commercial district.
The building offers a showcase to exhibit new technology development initiatives to corporations worldwide while supporting JTC’s shared roles as a local authority, utility company, property developer and technology vendor.
As the tallest building in the region, the tower is an impressive symbol for this forward-thinking enterprise.
