Heatherwick Studio has unveiled a 20-storey residential skyscraper in Singapore, which was designed to be "a counterpoint to ubiquitous glass and steel towers".
Named EDEN, the 104.5-metre-tall apartment building in the Newton district of Singapore comprises a vertical stack of homes that each have a garden.
The tower block contains 2o apartments that each occupy an entire floor. Each four-bedroomed apartment's focal point is an expansive central living space that opens onto a large, greenery-filled balcony.
The lowest apartment was also raised 23 metres above the ground, with an 18-metre-high lobby and a swimming pool clad in deep-green ceramic tiles created as the base of the tower.
Heatherwick Studio also designed the apartment's interiors using natural materials like a handmade parquet floor, which covers the open-plan living space and extends onto the main balcony.
The studio also designed the sinks, vanity units and tubs in the bathrooms.
Heatherwick Studio was founded in London by British designer Thomas Heatherwick. The studio also incorporated large-scale planting into its recently completed Maggie's Centre in Leeds, UK, and the 1,000 Trees development in Shanghai, China.
Heatherwick additionally unveiled a table that has wooden planters for legs at this year's London Design Festival.
