Dutch office UNStudio in Singapore completed an elaborate skyscraper comprising curved edges, sliced windows and deep recesses. Standing at 135-metres, the Ardmore Residence is a 36-storey apartment block near Singapore's famed Orchard Road, accommodating 58 homes.

"The highly textural facade of the Ardmore Residence works in unison with the organisation of the individual apartments, affording both extensive daylight to the unique residential spaces and panoramic views over the city of Singapore," said UNStudio principal Ben van Berkel. "The facade further generates a unique reading of the building in the neighbourhood, with its layered contours extending the appearance beyond four facades and providing a variety of profiles and perspectives," added Van Berkel.

The first apartments are on the eighth storey, allowing for a sheltered void at the base of the tower that opens out to terraces, gardens, and a private residents' swimming pool.
