Eden
by Heatherwick Studio

Hufton & Crow

Heatherwick Studio has created a housing tower made from natural materials in Singapore, as a radical departure from typical glass and steel towers.

Natural materials have been used to craft energy-efficient homes, which feel connected to the city's tree-lined streets.

The homes benefit from cross-ventilation, natural light and the privacy of elevated living.

By pulling apart the square block of conventional towers and moving the services to the perimeter, each apartment has a large central living space, surrounded by smaller individual rooms and shell-like balconies, providing much needed respite from the Singaporean sun.

As the plants grow, they will cascade down the building, in harmony with the green city.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
