Features mall architecture
The design of Orchard Central wraps and injects private commercial space with the public space of Orchard Road, activating all 11 storeys of the mall with street connectivity. The façade hosts an exploratory circulation system that places the visitor in unique relationships with the surrounding city: a series of open-air escalators and landings extend the experience of the sidewalk at ground level onto the 11th storey landscaped roof deck. Numerous vantage points designed within the façade encourage a surgical exploration of the city as one travels upward and through the building’s skin. The roof deck is a lushly landscaped outdoor setting that operates as a new public park with views outward to the city. This enveloping circulatory system also extends inward, puncturing internal spaces of shops and restaurants.
It is designed as Singapore's first vertical mall, and it consists of 12 floors above ground and 2 basement levels. It also features a "super escalator", which takes pedestrians on street level directly up to Level 4. The mall is served by a total of 52 escalators (including 6 super escalators) and 12 glass elevators
