Designed by DP Architects Pte Ltd, Grand Park Orchard a Fashion Hotel is located in Singapore. The hotel’s prominent location on Singapore’s famous Orchard Road emphasises its iconic nature and commands the attention of all those who pass by. Undergoing a retrofit exercise, Grand Park Orchard’s design concept was to create a series of new façades whilst retaining the building’s strong geometric form. The new design dressed the building in a variety of different media, from static cladding, to an animated LED Matrix and even an extensive media screen.
For the static cladding, a distinctive V-shaped Herringbone pattern was selected due to its use in creating sophisticated and timeless fabrics for fashion. The incorporation of the herringbone pattern into the glass façade extends this metaphor into the structural fabric of the building. Incorporating LED light technology into the patterned glass panels of various translucency, allows emphasis on the herringbone pattern at night.
