Denton Corker Marshall was engaged by Lendlease to lead a masterplan concept for extending Holland Village, a much loved local destination in Singapore.
The masterplan proposed 10 buildings of varying scales and uses, including intimate, low-rise retail, commercial and entertainment. Two ground planes of activated public realm and pedestrian laneways seamlessly connected into the existing village street network. A unique range of public spaces included a public square, and amphitheatre, outdoor cinema, a lush, terracing pocket park and playground, elevated pedestrian connections and landscaped public rooftop terraces. The architecture responds to Singapore’s tropical climate and image of a ‘City in a Garden’, with deep shaded, outdoor dining spaces, extensive facade greenery and lush landscaping.
The design was a collaboration with emerging Singaporean architectural firms, SPARK and GreenhilLi, local specialists DP Architects and leading landscape architects, Grant Associates.
