The design for this Malaysian-Singaporean joint venture actively engages the space of the surrounding city to form a new civic nucleus in Singapore’s modern metropolis. The two towers are not conceived as autonomous objects, but defined by the spaces they create around them.
The design for DUO subtracts circular carvings from the allowable building volumes in a series of concave movements that generate urban spaces, a kind of "urban poché" that co-opts adjacent buildings and symbiotically inscribes the two towers into their context.
By generating the massing through a subtractive process, the elevations of the new towers are reduced to slender profiles. Vertical facades rise skywards along the adjoining roads, while a net-like hexagonal pattern of sunshades reinforces the dynamic concave shapes. The duo of tower volumes is further sculpted to feature a series of cantilevers and setbacks that evoke choreographed kinetic movements of the building silhouettes.
The buildings dematerialize as they reach the ground to provide a porous permeable landscape traversing the site. Leisure zones and gardens act as a connector between multiple transport hubs and establish a flow of tropical greenery and lively commercial activity, accessible to the public 24 hours a day. A plaza, carved into the center of the towers and integrating the neighboring building as part of its perimeter, forms a new public nexus between the historic district of Kampong Glam and the extension of the city’s commercial corridor.
Multiple levels of vertical connectivity give access to large elevated terraces for the hotel and residents, a public observation deck and a sky restaurant atop the office/hotel tower, while establishing a direct connection to the adjacent underground MRT subway station. Vehicular traffic is lifted off the ground to allow an uninterrupted pedestrian circulation. Extensive landscape areas at the ground levels, elevated terraces and roofscapes provide accessible green space equal to 100% of the site area.
Construction is scheduled to start in 2013, with completion pencilled in for 2017.
26,700m2 lot bounded by Ophir Road, Beach Road, Rochor Road, North Bridge Road and Fraser Street

Nowadays, the brand continues to offer quality. comfort and solidity which constitutes its uniqueness. Lacoste operates a large number of Lacoste boutiques worldwide; located as concessions in leading department stores and also as independent venue stores.

Lend Lease unveils the crown jewel of shopping malls in the West of Singapore: Jem. Set to be the "gem" at the heart of the new commercial hub of the West, it will be the region’s mall of choice, seamlessly blending shopping with entertainment, functionality with experience and community culture with Orchard Road inspiration.
With the great retailer partnerships they have secured, they are well-placed to achieve their vision to become the first choice location for shopping and leisure in the West of Singapore. The mall aims to bring the best of Orchard Road to the West with shopping, entertainment, food and leisure all under one roof.
Upon completion in the second quarter of 2013, Jem will be Singapore’s 3rd largest suburban shopping mall with six levels spanning a gross floor area of 818,000 sq ft (76,000 sq m) and housing over 280 retailers. To date, 50% of the retail area has been leased.
Six major anchor tenants have already been secured. Cathay will feature the largest 10 screen cinema multiplex in the West with daily midnight movies. The new retro-chic themed multiplex will boast of eight commercial halls and two Platinum Movie Suites with a total seating capacity of 1,800. This project marks their first venture and sets in motion Cathay Cineplexes’ expansion in the western part of Singapore. With its opening, you can look forward to late-night movie screenings and an extraordinary cinema-going experience of the utmost visual and audio quality for which Cathay Cineplexes is renowned.
The Robinsons Group of Companies will also be marking their first suburban venture with their flagship Robinson’s department store and a Marks & Spencer store. The new Robinson will be the biggest suburban departmental store in Singapore, spanning over 85,000 sq ft.
Fairprice Xtra will provide everyday grocery shopping with a 70,000 sq ft hypermarket. The new Courts will be a 20,000 sq ft lifestyle store complete with tablet “bars” and Wi-Fi chill zones, while Koufu will provide an 18,000 sq ft food court with a breathtaking sky garden view.
In keeping with the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s decentralisation strategy to provide jobs closer to homes, and business hubs outside the city centre, there will also be an office tower situated above the retail component scheduled for completion in late 2013.
Jem is strategically located adjacent to the transportation hub in Jurong East. There is direct access to the Jurong East MRT station that serves both north-south and east-west train lines. The mall is also exceptionally well connected due to its close proximity to the Jurong East Bus Interchange and has above ground connectivity to neighbouring sites. It is expected to service 1.12 million people (20% of Singapore’s total population) who reside within Jem’s main trade area by 2013.
The design team behind the four-year old Singapore label belongs to two guys, Kenny and Andrew, cruising towards mid-life crisis. With over 15 years between them working in various advertising agencies, the ex-Art Director cum Writer duo, depressed with the corporate struggle, decides to channel an honest feeling into wearable art.
The label's name was born out of the boys' depression over not having a creative outlet, and the label was to be the vehicle by which to express their inner demons.
The doors to their new Orchard Road shop have finally opened! Located amidst a cluster of cool multi-brand shops and local designers, Depression is the latest addition to mall-with-most-potential, Cineleisure Orchard.
Every brick-and-mortar is curated by designers Kenny and Andrew, and is touted as 'a hospital found in an industrial area'. White walls, cement grounds and metal pipes complete the minimalist space.
For a more up-close tour of Depression's new home, you've got to swing by the shop.
Singapore's longest man-made waterway will be open to visitors from October 23. The 4.2 kilometre-long My Waterway@Punggol features five bridges, bringing visitors closer to the water. Punggol waterway was created out of barren land, and connects Punggol Reservoir to Serangoon Reservoir.
But the area has been given a facelift, making it a scenic spot for a slew of leisure activities. Visitors can relive old memories of Punggol along the way, by stopping at this rest stop, which was an old bus stop in the area.
As the waterway is man-made, the challenge for the Housing & Development Board was how to keep the waterway clean and teeming with life. This is done through a series of eco features - such as an eco-drain that cleanses surface run-off water before it is discharged into the waterway.
Aerators have also been installed to enhance the water quality.

What began in the 1960s as two small, family-run shops, selling souvenirs and handicrafts to British army personnel stationed in Singapore, is now a household name to both expats and Singaporeans.
Back in the 1960s, C.P. Lim and his brother C.K. Lim opened two souvenir stores located near British army bases, one in Jalan Kayu and another in Changi Village.
They became very popular and they expanded the business to include Lim’s Arts & Crafts in Holland Village. With the expansion of their product range into home furnishings and fashion, they eventually changed the name to what is now Lim’s Arts & Living. And they still sell souvenirs!
Harley-Davidson Inc., the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the U.S., opened its first Asian headquarters in Singapore. The maker of Fat Boy and Sportster motorcycles has said it wanted an Asian office, partly to better understand the challenges of doing business in China, India and other fast-growing nations.
International sales, which accounted for 25% of the company’s business four years ago, were 35% in 2010. The company has set a goal of at least 40% by 2014.
While cultivating sales in Asia, Harley-Davidson says for now it doesn’t plan to manufacture bikes there.The nearest it has come to that are operations in India, where American-made Harleys are reassembled from kits to avoid tariffs.
The company is not new to the Asia-Pacific region. Its founders realized the importance of international markets soon after Harley-Davidson began operations in 1903, and archives show sales to Japan as early as 1912.
Harley is recognized in Japan as an American icon, but it hasn’t always been easy to sell heavyweight motorcycles there. Years ago, Japanese motorcyclists were required to pass a special exam if they wanted to ride large touring bikes such as Harleys. One of the tests was to ride across a balance beam. Only about 2% of riders passed the test. In 2005, Japan repealed a law that prohibited motorcyclists from carrying a passenger on major highways. That helped boost Harley sales, according to motorcycle industry analysts.
The key for Harley-Davidson will be creating a culture that views motorcycles as leisure products rather than vehicles used for everyday transportation. Much of the company’s success in the United States has come from riding clubs, called Harley Owner Groups, and from motorcyclists customizing bikes.
Everything that’s essential to supporting a regional market has been included in the new Asian office, including sales, marketing and dealer development.

The Woodlands Waterfront project is part of the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Parks and Waterbodies Plan, which seeks to enhance Singapore's green spaces and waterbodies on an island-wide basis. The project is under URA’s ALivE, or Active, Liveable and Endearing Communities programme, which upgrades waterfront areas, enhance community areas and improve amenities in these places. The proposal for this project was first featured during the Woodlands Improvement Plan exhibition in 2002 and again under the Leisure Plan of the draft Master Plan exhibition in 2008.
Seeking to create new recreational destinations for the residents of Woodlands and other nearby residential estates, a new 1.5 km long waterfront promenade will be created along this little known stretch of serene and tranquil coastline. In addition, a 9ha site, which is not needed for development in the next 10 to 15 years, will be fully developed into a coastal park by the end of 2010.
The project is developed in two Phases. Phase 1 consists of a 200m long waterfront promenade connected to a 400m long refurbished jetty, waterfront picnic areas, event plaza, and an amenity building with a roof top look-out point. Phase 2 will offer an additional 1.3km long waterfront promenade with fitness stations and lookout points, and a park scheduled to be ready by end 2010.
The Woodlands Waterfront will also form part of the comprehensive network of parks and park connectors in the area and is intended to provide connectivity for the residents to the waterfront for recreational purposes. With its completion, more of the northern waterfront will be accessible for public enjoyment. It will also be linked to the recently completed Admiralty Park and the park connector along Woodlands Centre Road and Admiralty Road West in the future.
Designed for the avid exercise-goer or simply for a family to take a stroll, the Promenade is conceived as a linear recreational and exercise trail with unobstructed, expansive views of the Johor Straits. The promenade will be kept shady by existing and planting of new trees.
A 9 ha coastal Park by the Sea will be created, of which 3ha will be open in Phase 1, while the remaining park areas will open in Phase 2 in the later part of the year. About 6 ha of this former warehousing site will eventually be converted into green spaces with lush planting for recreational uses. The design of the park also leverages on existing terrain and contours, forming varied spaces and interesting views. The park will be a major recreational destination that capitalizes on the sea frontage. Sufficient outdoor spaces will be created to accommodate various sports activities and community events amongst other possible recreational uses.
For Phase 1, the park has 4 distinctive areas open to the public – the Picnic Green to the west of the jetty, the Event Space in the centre, the refurbished Jetty Walk to the north, and the rugged Playground and exercise area to the east.
