Bugis Junction

Situated directly above a Mass Rapid Transit station, Bugis Junction connects 63 reconstructed and preserved shophouses along Victoria Street, Middle Road and North Bridge Road. 

Bugis Junction consists of four sections. They are Bugis Junction Tower, Parco Bugis Junction, BHG Bugis Junction and InterContinental Singapore.

Reconstruction permitted the glass arcade to be structurally embedded within the shophouse forms, freeing space within the internal corridors and unifying the old and new. The two- and three-storey structures reinforce a local identity, though historic memory is juxtaposed with large-scale, modern structures which bookend the site — a 16-storey, 400 room InterContinental Hotel, and a 15-storey office block. The result is an urban intervention that implants a 21st century network of public spaces within the city’s rooted fabric.
