PARKROYAL on Pickering
皮克林宾乐雅已成为新加坡现代建筑的典范，反映市内文化特色。由来自WOHA的设计师操刀，皮克林宾乐雅采用花园酒店理念，与毗连的新加坡地标呼应，成为当地首家贯彻环保概念的“花园酒店”。酒店面积约 15,000 平米、拥有楼高四层的繁茂园林、瀑布和花墙，为当地绿化锦上添花。
Designed by award-winning architectural firm WOHA, PARKROYAL on Pickering is Singapore’s first hotel-in-a-garden, a ground-breaking iconic structure inspired by its surroundings. A unique urban resort that is environmentally responsible, the hotel features over 15,000m2 of lush skygardens, reflecting pools, waterfalls, planter terraces, and cascading vertical greenery and is already hailed as an architectural stunner.
Tall towers of green-blue floor-to-ceiling windows create a streamlined upper exterior. Standing out amidst the Singapore skyline the towers appear as an aquamarine mosaic, inspired by the nearby Singapore River. The design is softened by over ten species of shaded trees, tall palm flowering plants, leafy shrubs and overhanging creepers that mirror the green areas of Hong Lim Park opposite.
The high ceilings of the hotel lobby continue the terraced rice paddy inspiration, with inverted tiered levels drawing the eye upwards. Mirrors and glass have been used to expand the sense of space and to reflect the natural light that floods through the floor-to-ceiling windows. A wooden walkway flanked by a water feature, reminiscent of a stream, leads guests seamlessly from the lobby through to LIME. Guests pass below a mirror reflecting the ripples of water and alongside a dramatic “Living Wall” of self-sustaining green mosses and plants, bringing the outdoors inside through the design.
The guestrooms and suites are configured to allow as much natural light in as possible. Rooms are also equipped with sliding walls in order to maximise the sense of space. Every room features all-natural products with recycled composite granite used for bathtubs, sinks and vanity tops. Elemental wood and stone finishes lend an organic feel, while soft colour hues - a palette of muted greens - combined with large windows, creates a light and airy ambience.
The tropical setting and extensive landscaping spreads throughout the property. As much of the public spaces are externalised, guests walk through outdoor corridors lined with plants or walkways set within the four skygardens en route to their rooms.
