The new building will replace an existing tower block that has served UIC since 1973.

The V on Shenton will be a 23-storey, 123m high office tower and a 53-storey, 272m high residential tower with a shared plinth.

The building will be built like a hexagonal structure with angular facades and shading elements to suit the climate of Singapore.

UNStudio co-founder and principal architect Ben van Berkel said that the pattern of the facade comprises four to five different textures, each varying depending on the programme.

"At times the glass of the facade creates texture through the relief effect and the coloured side lighting, whilst the volumetric balconies of the residences create a deep texture in the total volume of the building," van Berkel.

The building will feature sky lobbies, facades and a sky garden, and will offer panoramic views of Singapore.

Each tower is framed by ‘chamfers’, a line that will combine the composition of the residential tower, the office tower and the plinth.

The chamfers will appear smooth during daytime, in contrast to the textured surfaces of the towers, while at night they will be lit as a continuous line.

Residents of the penthouse levels will have access to outdoor roof terraces.
