Ascent, Singapore Science Park 1, SG

Since 2003, S333 have been assisting Ascendas to develop their next generation of business and science parks. These new initiatives in urban transformation are associated with the growing knowledge economy and propose more sustainable urban communities.

 

The goal is to establish urban and architectural guide-lines that can support cross-sector business synergies. This is achieved by organising multi-tenanted buildings, stand alone offices, amenities, F&B outlets and residential space into mixed-use ‘integrated communities’.

Ascent is a 52,000m2 building consisting of regional office headquarters, retail, restaurants, creche and pharmacy, all set around a sequence of courts, gardens and plazas. The building signifies the first phase of S333's masterplan to transform and upgrade Singapore Science Park 1.

 

Ascent is located at a main road junction and immediately adjacent to Kent Ridge MRT Station. The project sets up the conditions for a fully functioning 'urban campus', creating a new business cluster with a high-quality pedestrian experience.
