Singapore Hotel: the Parkroyal on Pickering

Designed by Singapore’s architectural darlings WOHA, the Parkroyal on Pickering hotel in Singapore packs a maddening 15,000 square metres of gardens, waterfalls and vertical green walls into its premises. Seems legit, then, that it is hailed as a ‘hotel in a garden’. The endless cascading tiers are inspired by Bali’s rice terraces, while, within the hotel’s eco-luxe confines, everything adds up to form a rather impressive sum of the total: marble walls that appear to flow like water, plucky birdcage-shaped cabanas that overlook the infinity pool and playful shadows cast by trees silhouetted against mood lights at night.

Let’s not forget the green measures in place too — that includes harvesting rain, harnessing solar power and making good use of sensors to conserve both energy and water.
