The Firm

Green spaces are invaluable to the habitability and long-term sustainability of cities, often providing linkages and social collection points that strengthen urban fabrics. Holding this firm belief that architecture and landscape are inextricably linked, is DP Green (DPG). An interdisciplinary practice that comprises landscape architects, architects, designers, horticulturists and arborists, the landscape designs of DPG work towards producing a deep-seated sense of place by responding to a site’s natural genius loci.
Their goal is to realise project sites that are beneficial to the environment and for the people who use them. The group’s early involvement in projects facilitates the timely resolution of issues that will inform well-integrated outcomes. The implementation of green deck spaces in particular can influence programmes at all levels, with a strong impact on spatial functionality and building sustainability. Shared roof gardens establish dynamic outdoor spaces of activity; and well-planned greenery and water features factor in heat gain, with the potential to reduce a building’s reliance on energy resources.
This is evident across their completed projects. Jardin, for instance, stands as testimony. The Singapore residential development was a project that explored the concept of high-rise garden living. The design schematics feature façade-length terraces that were built into alternating levels to create double-height garden spaces accessible to each of the building’s 140 residences over ten storeys, as well as a landscaped 8,500sqm site and a roof deck to accommodate additional outdoor recreation spaces. Various landscape design techniques were applied to provide a blend of sensory experiences, and the garden terraces perform as extensive outdoor spaces that reinvent traditional high-rise living.
