safdie architects reveals designs for the new headquarters for surbana jurong, singapore’s leading architecture, urban design, and infrastructure firm. the project marks the first initiative for the safdie surbana jurong joint venture, which was established in 2017 to develop innovative and iconic projects in asia-pacific. the campus, featuring treehouse pavilions linked by a centralized footbridge, harmoniously integrates the surrounding natural landscape and tropical canopies. the extensive campus is designed as an expression of singapore’s embodiment of the ‘garden city.’
The campus by safdie architects will be the initial flagship development of a jurong district ‘eco-garden’ set within the anticipated ‘cleantech park.’ the expansive surbana jurong campus maintains respect for the human scale and the individual experience of visitors as well as the 4,000 employees. during the initial design phase, the teams at safdie architects and surbana jurong undertook an intricate site analysis to map the locations of the specimen trees and unique plant life. this understanding led to a proposal which preserves a maximum amount of mature vegetation.
The series of ‘treehouse-like’ pavilions which comprises the headquarters are united by a centralized pedestrian walkway, weaving throughout interior and exterior landscapes. this path designates a spatial hierarchy, generating a network of offices embedded within the surrounding parkland. a glazed pedestrian spine and a series of both open-air and enclosed courtyards provide natural light and fresh air. a diverse array of plant life for each courtyard will be curated by PWP landscape architects, introducing to each its own distinctive character. the north courtyard, with a shared meeting center, is quieter in nature and lushly planted to create intimate spaces within the gardens. the south courtyard, with a cafeteria program, is much livelier and is primarily a hardscaped piazza punctuated by more formal planting.
This competition invites seven inter-disciplinary elites as the judges. Let’s unveil the jury panel now.
