More than two years in the making, ION Orchard - a retail and residential complex on Singapore’s Orchard Road - is the requisite mix of luxury and high-street brands, but it’s the striking architecture that provides the real draw.
Created by London-based firm Benoy, the building has already won two awards for its curvy, organic design that includes a glass-and-steel monocoque façade dotted with hundreds of LED lights. Inside, shoppers will find duplex flagship stores for Cartier, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton and Prada. Need a break from the retail overload?
There’s a 520-square-meter art gallery on level four, while the 3,000-square-meter piazza in the front provides ample space for a breather from the shopping frenzy.
