Pan Pacific Hotels Group: PARKROYAL on Pickering, by Patrick Imbardelli  (1/3)

When the architectural team at WOHA embarked on the design process for PARKROYAL on Pickering, they collaborated closely with Pan Pacific Hotels Group (PPHG) to formulate a structural plan capable of supporting a host of ecologically friendly features in addition to the amenities that draw discriminating travelers to the company’s extensive international portfolio of properties. PARKROYAL on Pickering will certainly delight guests with its sprawling pool terrace, gymnasium complete with all of the latest exercise equipment, secretary-staffed business centre, day spa, and rooftop bar that offers an incredible view of Singapore’s skyline. When visitors choose to leave hotel grounds to explore Singapore’s vibrant cosmopolitan epicenter, they can easily access countless dining and entertainment options that line the waterfront of the Singapore River.

The special touches that truly set PARKROYAL on Pickering apart, however, demonstrate a clear and notable reverence to the natural world. Contained within the hotel’s property, a 300-meter long nature trail replete with a waterfall walkway will imbue guests with a feeling of calm as they wander through this oasis so close yet so far removed from the urban energy of Singapore’s city streets. To supplement PARKROYAL on Pickering’s “hotel-in-a garden concept,” Pan Pacific Hotels Group and WOHA incorporated towering “skygardens” throughout the exterior of the entire property, instilling both public spaces and private rooms with a tropical forest-like atmosphere.

Upon finalization of construction, a total of 15,000 square meters of greenery will astound visitors who arrive at PARKROYAL on Pickering. Along with the aforementioned “skygardens” and waterfall, the hotel will maintain an arboretum’s worth of flora to include native palms, shade trees, tropical flowers, creeping vines, and leafy shrubs. Furthermore, the hotel will install planter terraces on many of its walls to offset the structure’s boldly geometric architecture.
