Designed by New Space International Architectural Practice (NSIAP) Pte Ltd, IBP Plot 4A, office building is located in Singapore. The buildings placement and form are responses to a few factors arising from analysis of the existing context. The existing figure ground of the surrounding area is fragmented and lacks public spaces and monuments.
A waiver was granted for this building to reach 13 storeys. This waiver was based on the reasoning that a thirteen-storey building could serve as a monument and public front to a new public park that we would provide that foregrounds the new building from the train line and the streets. A waiver was also granted for the ground floor to be used as commercial space that would be accessible to the public provided the rentals were pegged to the office rates.
The orientation of the building is north-south, the southern façade contains the core and the office spaces face north towards the park and train line. Vehicular approach to the building is from the north, the main vehicular on the west side of the site entrance to the building is from the west.
