The Jurong Gateway is a major commercial, residential and business district in Singapore. To meet the demands of its growing professional population, we were tasked with designing a large mixed-use development that could offer a functional yet attractive blend of office and retail space, drawing from the rich textures of its surroundings.
Inspired by the rivers and mangroves of the island’s original scenery, we juxtaposed subtle, natural forms with modern urbanism, providing a tranquil environment for the 150m office tower and unique settings for retail businesses.
Truly distinctive in its aesthetics, and offering a vibrant space for the community, Westgate is a mini metropolis to suit both active and relaxed lifestyles. Greenery and landscaping are central to Westgate’s design, with expansive urban parks atop the retail podium, children’s play areas, and a swimming pool with club facilities.
