Identity - - PORTFOLIO -

Float­ing Gar­dens is the name of a project de­signed by Or­ange Ar­chi­tects, which will trans­form an ex­ist­ing of­fice build­ing into a pri­mary school on two lev­els, as well as 190 apart­ments on the re­main­ing 15 sto­ries above. There will be ca­pac­ity for a to­tal of 400 chil­dren to attend the school which will also be home to a day care cen­tre and pre-school and after-school fa­cil­i­ties. Half of the new apart­ments will be mid-mar­ket rental homes, with the re­main­ing flats avail­able for pri­vate purchase. All res­i­dents will have ac­cess to The Liv­ing Room, an informal meet­ing space aimed at cre­at­ing a sense of com­mu­nity.
