Merrill Lynch Harbourfront

2 Harbourfront Place

Merrill Lynch HarbourFront is a linear, bold and sleek low-rise building form fronting Telok Blangah Road and HarbourFront Place     Merrill Lynch HarbourFront is sited above the two major underground MRT lines, the North-east line (NEL) and the Circle Line (CCL) with a pre-determined structural grid and loading allocated above the MRT tunnels. There is also a control on the building height imposed on the site to ensure unobstructed view by means of height band control between the observation point at Mount Faber to the Mid Channel. As such, the building is only allowed to have up to six storeys. The building form is envisaged as a volumetric mass lifted off the ground, cradled by columns defining the public space on 1st storey. The main volume is identifiable by distinct cladding sleek curtain wall façade and juxtapose by a pop out square volume fronting HarbourFront Place addressing the corner within the HarbourFront precinct. The 5-storey office volume is lifted off the 1st storey, where the main lobby and vehicular drop-off court is integrated with a public concourse. At night, the building is transformed into a different dimension with the introduction of lighting concept designed by internationally renowned lighting specialist. Moving lights are introduced along the long expand of the glass façade providing a dynamic effect. As the roof plane is highly visible from the surrounding higher places, such as Mount Faber, adjacent HarbourFront Office Towers and the cable cars that pass directly above the building, special lighting is also considered for the roofscape with coloured lighting and ‘stardust’ effect to delight the spectator.
