W ARCHITECTS | THE OLIV, SINGAPORE

November 17, 2016

The Oliv is a 12-storey residential apartment block designed by W Architects.”Singapore has been promoting vertical greening and the provision of communal space in residential development. One of the most prominent regulatory features implemented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) is the introduction of the sky terrace as a communal space. W Architects have approached regulations as opportunities rather than restrictions and the Oliv is essentially an architectural expression of this particular guideline, pushed to its limits. The sky terraces have become the most notable feature of the building’s façade.”
