Occupying a strategic position in the residential zone, the seven towers of d’Leedon grow from sunken gardens into the sky – each one articulated as a sequence of petals, generating great diversity and offering stunning views from every apartment, before blending into sky in a series of staggered fingers.

d’Leedon occupies a strategic position within the residential zone of Singapore, close to the amenities of Holland Road and the Farrer Court MRT Station, dominating a prestigious area, devoid of other highrise buildings.

Seven residential towers occupy a site generated by the confluence of existing roads, buildings and natural landscape features, giving the development inherent ‘connectivity’ with its surroundings. Groundscape is visualized as a green layer, emphasizing the presence of florid vegetation, with terracing employed to maximize communal amenities. All seven buildings are orientated to optimize both sunlight and views across the surrounding city.

d’Leedon’s seven towers grow from sunken gardens, their lower floors tapering in where each meets the ground to enable greater access and the creation of private gardens, quite unique in a development of this density and scale. Each tower is divided into ‘petal’ sequences – defined by residential units and emphasized by vertical cuts within building facades – generating considerable diversity in each structure.

Each tower culminates at its pinnacle in a series of stepped fingers, blending the transition between architectural fabric and skyline.
