As one of the busiest pedestrian malls in Singapore complete with a residential tower above, the ION landscape design at street level caters to two typologies. Lush greenery punctuates the walkways along Orchard Boulevard and Paterson Road as a 3m high long green wall anchors the base of Orchard Residences. The ninth-storey terrace garden for Orchard Residences provides a landscaped retreat for its residents in contrast to the busy city environment below at street level. Included in the extensive 75,000 sqft of amenities are a variety of pools and Jacuzzis, event spaces for BBQs and private parties, numerous sports and gym facilities, massages tables, lounging around a 50m pool set within a larger body of water, a wine and cigar room and a spa set in a garden of tall trees. The flowering trees lightly scent the air when in bloom, and the sound of running water from the carefully designed water features and reflecting ponds provides a tranquil background throughout the landscape.
