A new development is rising – bringing together the energy of a city and the warmth of a village. Introducing a single location that blends the old and the new; urban landscape and lush greenery; residences, serviced residences, shops and offices.
The refreshed, and re-energised Holland Village will be a living, vibrant community where people gather to live, play, work, eat, and shop – the Village brings everyone and everything together as one.
One Holland Village weaves a new language from the common threads that make the neighbourgood so special. Drawing inspiration from Holland Village's architecture, streetscape, and low-rise shophouses, this development will create a live-work-play environment that will bring the community together as one.
Building a new development within the low-rise enclave of Holland Village requires boldness and sensitivity. Rather than an imposing structure towering over the neighbourhood, One Holland Village blends seamlessly into the distinct's informal landscape, an extension of the neighbourhood's stoned walls. Its architecture carefully references the basic building blocks of the neighbourhood - the iconic shophouses and irregular strreets. The result is a distinctive landmark that enriches the existing Holland Village community and urban fabric.
