Located prominently at the intersection of Robinson Road and McCallum Street, close to the heart of the Central Business District, 71 Robinson Road is a landmark office building that is an important contribution to the cityscape of Singapore. Completed in collaboration with design architect Ingenhoven Architects, its distinctive and elegant design character is defined by lightness, transparency and openness.
The horizontal running louvers around the entire height and perimeter of the façade give the building a lightweight appearance. This key design element also serves as a sun-shading device during the day, and as lighting at night, creating the visual impression of the building floating above street level. The light intensity increases at the roof, making the building’s crown a visible reference point on the skyline.
The building is designed to maximise space efficiency and ecological sustainability. Typical office floors have a clear ceiling height of three metres and are almost column-free, ideal for flexible internal layout. The full-height glass facade invites daylight deep into the interiors, lowering the need for artificial light.
The double-height covered walkway leads seamlessly from the street into the lobby, conceived as an urban living room, very transparent, and very welcoming to visitors and guests.
