The tropical gardens at the top floors of the Ocean Financial Centre fit within the interstitial spaces between the building structure and the glass façade. The landscaping at the high floors (39th to the 43rd) create a connection to the built green environment. The resultant lush setting provides visual relief for users who spend most of their time in the artificially ventilated environment of an office.
An existing large carpark at the ground floor plaza provided an opportunity for vertical greening. The three sides of the structure were planted with potted plants to portray maps of South East Asia, the World and Singapore. In 2013, the project was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest green wall in the world.
