Irwell Hill
Irwell Hill are residence towers in Singapore.

The recently unveiled design of Irwell Hill, twin 36-story residence towers, calls for the development to be situated among copious greenery including preserved heritage rain trees.
ADDP Architects says their design is intended for “modern urban living set against the lush landscape of Singapore’s District 9. The architecture also connects the botanical landscape with the outdoor spaces of the balconies to create a lush green experience for its denizens.” The façades will feature a champagne gold pixel-pattern intended to make a bold, distinctive statement among Singapore’s skyline.

MRVDR, the design architect, is partnering with ADDP on the project. The main entrances will sit atop an elevated terrain that resembles an expansive hillside haven. Each building will house function rooms suitable for meetings and conferences for residents working from home. Other amenities include a spa, clubhouse pool, and a 50-square-meter (164-square-foot) Infinity-Edge Raintree Pool surrounded by vegetation. The Tree Top Gourmet eatery will cater small events. Recreation opportunities include a dog park, tennis court, and state-of-the-art fitness center.

On 24th floor of both towers will be the “Vista Co-Work” space to be reserved for work-from-home residents. This space will be outfitted with high-speed WiFi, charging stations, and a view framed by the greenery. Two roof top spaces, Irwell Sky, for intimate gatherings, and a vibrant Sky Lounge boasting stunning views of the cityscape, will be available to residents.

The project is located next to public transit options—the Great World MRT Station (Thomson-East Coast Line), Orchard MRT Station (North-South Line)—and a short drive from the Central Expressway (CTE).
