The world of architecture has changed over time, driven by modernization and shifting preferences. Advanced technology paved the way for the creation of unconventional developments and bold projects that inspire circles of professionals and the public eye. Sustainability becomes even more integrated with architectural plans, challenging traditional designs while encouraging innovation. One of Singapore’s newest structures epitomizes this pivotal role of architecture in today’s world. With its exceptional concept and cutting-edge design, CapitaSpring is transforming the beauty of the country’s skyline to a whole new level.
Located at the Central Business District (CBD), CapitaSpring is hard to miss with its aluminum façade that mimics vertical waves and exudes a modern vibe. According to BIG founder Bjarke Ingels, “at multiple elevations, the facade peels open to reveal urban oases for its users and the surrounding city – animating the elegant smoothness of modern architecture with the ubiquitous tropical nature”.
CapitaSpring aims to set the benchmark for offices of the future while addressing the heightening concerns on climate change. It encourages a vibrant work-live-play community which is paramount in today’s increasingly busy world. CapitaSpring is not just another office building; it’s a space that exhibits a fresh environment bringing people closer to nature while architecting a sustainable future.
CapitaSpring’s Garden Oasis brings a unique experience with its open-air botanical space concept. It also features tech-enabled meeting rooms and work pods, allowing tenants and the public to work from anywhere within the garden. Other features include Forest Walk, Ideation Nests, Jungle Gym, Reverie Lounge, Yoga Alcove, and more.
As part of people centricity, CapitaSpring created Modern Grade A offices and integrated advanced technology to enhance workplace wellness. CapitaSpring features facial recognition access, a contactless destination control system, and pre-registration for guests.
CapitaSpring shows that merging sustainability and innovation does not only improve and challenge traditional architecture strategies. It can also be instrumental in making a positive impact on society. With its drive to reconnect humans with nature, it enables environmental consciousness and rekindles Singapore residents’ love for nature. Its innovative design offers a better way of working and living, inspiring others to create projects that are future-ready.
