Singapore, as a city has always been one which has experimented with the parameters of design, constantly trying something new, architecturally and otherwise. The Park Royal Hotel, in the heart of the city, is one such spark of an idea. Dubbed as the "ultimate green-city", this hotel-as-garden by WOHA is a lush oasis in the city of Singapore- this ‘green’ building in the literal sense, is designed so that it actually doubles the green-growing potential of its existing site. What is interesting is that the architects and designers have managed to put more than 160,000 square feet of gardens into their design, the highest density of greenscape as seen on any built building. These gardens are no average landscapes with tended lawns and a few potted plants to boot- No, these are full sized gardens, comparable to jungles, and handled with the precision of a manicured topiary.
