Fusionopolis (one-north) is Singapore’s icon of the knowledge economy, a high-rise and high-security commercial complex that houses local and overseas occupants. Covering almost 200 hectares, one-north will be developed in phases over a period of 15 to 20 years, integrating residential units, commercial hubs, tertiary and research institutes, sports facilities as well as green lungs.
Fusionopolis conceives three high-rise towers (one being 22 floors and two being 24 floors) and a podium occupying a land area of 12.000 m? over an underground car park. In this unique environment, sky gardens and green roofs played a very special role in striking a balance between the intended landscape design and the practical use for the occupants. Phase one of Fusionopolis is a 120,000sqm state of the art building designed by internationally renowned Japanese architect Dr. Kisho Kurokawa.
The main gardens are situated on the crucial floors with the transitions to the other towers. These roof gardens have a dense vegetation comprising trees with heights of up to 5 metres and shrubs of up to 1.5 metres. Furthermore, many small but visible gardens were built on balconies in the outdoor areas of all offices. They were spread over the total height of the complex.
