305 metres Super Penthouse at 8 Shenton Way will be highest residence in Singapore
305 metres Super Penthouse at 8 Shenton Way will be highest residence in Singapore. 8 Shenton Way will be Singapore’s tallest building by 2028. The super penthouse property, which will be positioned on the 305m tower’s top floor, will also be accessible via elevator in less than a minute. The stunning penthouse, which offers unsurpassed panoramic views of the South China Sea, is set to dethrone the Wallich Residence in Guoco Tower as the city’s tallest tower. In 2019, British inventor James Dyson paid a record $73.8 million for Wallich Residence’s super penthouse unit at the top of Gucco Tower.
Despite the fact that the project’s design was released on Thursday, the architects from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), who built both towers, are keeping quiet on what the new penthouse at the city’s tallest structure would offer. In an interview with The Straits Times on Tuesday, SOM design partner Mustafa Abadan and design principal Nicolas Medrano would only say that the luxurious penthouse will occupy the top floor of the new 63-story mixed-use development, which houses a vertical community of public spaces, offices, retail units, luxury residences, and a hotel. The architectural design consultant is SOM, who previously designed Dubai’s famed Burj Khalifa tower. DCA Architects of Singapore will design the following building.
The former AXA Tower site, which is owned by Alibaba Singapore, Perennial Holdings, and a group of partners, will act as a focal point for the Central Business District and Marina Bay. Nature and sustainability, according to the architects, are driving factors in the design. “By trying to meet the city’s most recent and demanding sustainability rules,” Mr Abadan noted, “our design will set a new paradigm for strong and elegant high-rise design in Singapore and beyond.”
The design attempts to reduce both embodied and operational carbon, from zero-waste terracotta manufacture to the usage of engineered bamboo, with the architects aiming for the highest sustainability accreditation from Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority.
