Based on Singapore’s urban development concept of a City in a Garden, EDEN combines high-class apartments with closeness to nature in the central and very popular District 10. In the middle of an exclusive neighborhood, the building literally elevates Singapore’s species-rich landscape.
The 20 apartments, all of which have a living space of 282 square meters and a room height of three meters, each extend over an entire floor. Around a large, column-free living room with an adjacent main balcony, the remaining rooms are grouped in three concrete elements. These peripheral cores extend across the entire height of the building, simultaneously providing the supporting structure of the residential tower.
Between the concrete elements there are balconies with integrated and generously planted shell-shaped planters, which were partly hand-made by local manufacturers. This arrangement of the building volume allows extensive cross-ventilation, which makes electronic air conditioning redundant.
The lush greenery comprising more than twenty tropical plant species, which were extensively researched for this project, completes the feeling of living in a tropical jungle.
