18 Robinson reimagines retail and office space by pulling contemporary Singaporean culture and greenery into the building. Publicly accessible gardens throughout the tower replace the green space lost to the project’s development, while the tower’s faceted, gem-like form provides elevated outlook points over the marina and city streets.
London’s Floral Court weaves together contemporary and historic buildings. United by a formerly inaccessible square, Floral Court is now a network of new residential and retail spaces integrated into the renovated original neighborhood. The modern spaces complement and draw inspiration from tradition in form and materiality.
