22 Bishopsgate, designed by PLP Architecture for AXA IM – Real Assets and Lipton Rogers Developments, is the tallest tower at the heart of the City of London’s financial district.

Arbor is a hub for interaction, creativity, and inspiration in the heart of London, located in the hypermixed, fossil-fuel free Bankside Yards masterplan. It plays a vital role in shaping a 24-hour cultural neighbourhood that blends work and city life, art and technology, culture and nature. The building’s goal is to provide a one-of-a-kind workplace surrounded and activated by 8 diverse public spaces, 3 cultural areas, 14 arches with wellness programs and social activities, and 5-star hospitality; all of which links into London’s cultural network along the Thames’ South Bank cultural quarter.
Created for Shun Tak Holdings, this new luxury residential tower sits within a verdant site along Orchard Boulevard in Singapore’s most desirable neighbourhood: a biophilic vertical enclave redefining urban living in the garden city. Our inspiration for the project is drawn from its surroundings. We looked back to the 19th Century, when the region was filled with plantations and orchards laden with fruit, pepper and nutmeg, symbolising good fortune. The projects represents an encounter with nature – a moment in a secluded garden underneath a canopy of lush green trees.
