Located in the heart of Singapore's Central Business District, the former UIC Building dominated the city skyline as Singapore’s tallest building for many years following its completion in 1973 and formed part of an important collection of towers located along Shenton Way.
近来，珊顿大道正进行大规模的翻新改造，其中就包括新UIC大楼——V on Shenton的重建计划。这一综合体的建造将为整个区域带来独特影响。
Recently the area has undergone a rejuvenation and transformation and V on Shenton - the new UIC building - forms part of this redevelopment. The mixed-use programming of V on Shenton presents a unique situation in this area of the city.
形式和功能 Form and Function
The dual programming of office and residential is a unique situation in this area and the massing of the towers is designed to reflect this. The office tower corresponds to the scale of the area opposite the residential tower, which rises up to distinguish itself from the surrounding buildings. The office and residential facades originate from the same family of patterns. The basic shape of the hexagon is used to create patterns which increase the performance of the facades, with angles and shading devices that are responsive to the climatic conditions of Singapore.
立面纹理 Facade Texture
每个塔楼都有 “倒角” 框架，它形成一条连接住宅楼、办公楼和底座的线条。在白天，平滑的“倒角”与塔楼的纹理表面形成鲜明对比。在晚上，倒角照亮了塔楼，形成连续线条。建筑还设有一系列空中花园，花园内绿植郁郁葱葱，新鲜的空气为久居城市的住户提供了一处享受可持续生活方式的场地。
Each tower is framed by 'chamfers', forming a line that brings together the composition of the residential tower, the office tower and the plinth. During the day the chamfers appear smooth, in contrast to the textured surfaces of the facades. At night the chamfers are lit as a continuous line. Along with the facades, a series of sky gardens play an integral part in developing the sustainable lifestyle of the 'V on Shenton'. These lush green spaces provide a refuge from the city and the climate and vegetation naturally provide fresher, cleaner air.
