Orchard Scotts is a collection of three sculptural prisms. The project consists of 640 luxury serviced-apartments, 1 to 4 bedrooms, distributed in two, 20-story towers and one 18-story tower, collectively 737,000 SF (68,500m2). The three high-rise towers have a clubhouse, swimming pool, putting green and other amenities.
The buildings rotate at angles about a central water landscape, the focal point of the composition and of communal activities within the secure compound. The result is a setting in which the buildings act as monumental statements of form within a sculpture garden. Each volume originates as a functional rectangular plan, and is then “carved” in section to create form and profile. This is accomplished by removing a portion of buildings at its center or its edges. Each building earns its identity through its profile against the sky and the surrounding buildings. Their personality is further defined by their individual colors. The colored glass stripes vary in shades to create a moray pattern, adding depth and a painterly quality to the skin.
