One George Street

1 George Street

One George Street is the first building within the Central Business District to extend greenery vertically at different levels   Prominently located at the edge of the Singapore central business district, the site of One George Street (OGS) provided the opportunity for an iconic architectural gesture that would herald one’s entrance to the central city. The sleek modern lines and lush landscaping of OGS establish a new node in a picturesque urban composition that contains an important amalgamation of modern and historical architecture. The Grade A office building is characterised by the clean lines of facade louvres and the voids carved from the four elevations, which counterbalance the asymmetrical building form. At levels 5, 12, 15, and 22, the carved-out areas accommodate sky gardens. All the garden voids were conceived as fluid amoeba-shaped forms. At street level, three glass bubbles signify lift core entrances. Raising the second level of the building by 18 metres enabled the first level to have a strong sense of connection to the adjacent Hong Lim Park. Rows of mature trees provide a soothing green enclosure. The bright and well-ventilated first level allows interaction between interior and exterior spaces. The union of nature and the working environment is a milestone achievement. It illustrates how multiple components can be integrated. One George Street functions like a self-contained vertical city. The building has garnered multiple awards, both locally and regionally. Its significance to the city was acknowledged with its inclusion in the URA’s Singapore 1:1 City exhibition.
