ONG&ONG：该项目位于武吉知马路和武吉班让路的交汇处，毗邻KTM铁路和蔡厝港路的历史铁路交叉口。多年来它一直以一个商业中心的身份作为该城市的节点，如今The Tennery在经过改造后，继续作为一个重要城市节点而存在着。The Tennery由一个15层高的新住宅公寓、建在10号交叉路口之上的娱乐设施以及一个裙楼顶层设有轻轨终点站的现有购物中心组成。
ONG&ONG：The site sits at the junction of Bukit Timah and Bukit Panjang Roads, next to a historical rail crossing of the KTM railway and Choa Chu Kang Road. It is an urban node that has long been a commercial hub up till the present, where it continues as a significant nodal point in the form of the revamped Junction 10 and The Tennery. The Tennery comprises a new 15-storey residential condominium with recreational facilities built above Junction 10, a rejuvenated and retrofitted existing shopping mall with a light rail terminal on the topmost floor of its podium.
城市与环境的连续性 Urban & Contextual Continuity
A changing urban fabric reflects the growth of a city in accommodating current needs. So it is with The Junction 10/Tennery development, where the commercial/retail podium is given a new lease of life through a redesign of the internal spaces, retail mix and an exciting contemporary facelift of the building facade.
In recognizing the increasing trend of entrepreneurship amongst younger Singaporeans, a 10-storey high SOHO residential block was added above the existing 4-storey retail podium. This SOHO complex design comes well endowed with all the trappings of urban downtown living.
The podium roof at the 5th storey has become a recreational landscaped deck for the SOHO block offering a full list of facilities found in most mainstream condominiums and more, its design also catering to the SOHO concept of working and playing from home.
The close association of the site to the historic distance “stone markers” and the defunct railway line is continued as an architectural metaphor and manifested in the faceted boulder-like forms of the retail outlets along the building edge facing the roads.
In continuum, this 5th storey landscape deck is conceived as a series of tectonic plates that have been “pushed” up through “seismic” upheavals in the retail podium to give way to the SOHO block. These tectonic plates form a composition of sundecks and pocket gardens that intersperse with the 50m free-form angular swimming pool, water features and the recreational pods. The latter are multifunction pods, able to serve both the recreational and executive / entrepreneurial needs of users, being fitted out with air-conditioning and audio-visual facilities. The other de rigueur facilities on this deck include the multi-purpose function room and gym.
A distinctive and unique recreational sky bridge on the 9th storey links the 2 towers together. This is where the tennis court is located, flanked by 2 sky terraces. Additionally, more intimate gardens are found on the 14th & 15th storeys of each tower for a quieter reflection.
Although the Tennery sits above a bustling commercial podium, it enjoys a tranquility that belies its location and residents are able to revel in the tropical resort-like ambience of the landscape.
