Raffles Place, Singapore
To provide the modular green wall system to enable a free-standing green wall to be installed and form the living backdrop of an existing water feature between the tower blocks of Republic Plaza and Equity Plaza.
The make-up of the Elmich VGM® Green Wall at Republic Plaza, consists of a free-standing metal framework, onto which pilasters were directly bolted to enable the mounting of pre-planted VGM® modules. These modules created an instant living wall, visible through the floor-to-ceiling glass-panel wall at the left of the building.
The green wall forms the living backdrop of an existing water feature and fountain at the narrow space which separates the tower blocks of Republic Plaza and Equity Plaza.
At 66 storeys and 280 metres high, Republic Plaza shares the title of “Tallest Building” with the OUB Centre and UOB Plaza One in the Central Business District of Singapore.
The Green Wall complements the existing water feature and fountain, to create an oasis amidst the daunting walls of the surrounding “concrete jungle”. Often, patrons of a delicatessen along the glass panel wall can be seen enjoying the refreshing elements of green and water during their meals.
