ION Orchard (乌节弯) is the "centre of gravity" in the retail scene, with spectacular frontage and cutting edge designs and concepts, over eight levels of intelligently designed shopping space –
four levels above ground and four levels below –
totalling 66,000 square metres of retail space at the prime site of Singapore’s commercial and shopping artery.

Designed by leading architecture firm Benoy, who brought shoppers iconic malls such as the Bullring in Birmingham, UK. It “demonstrates unique and progressive urban design” to one of Southeast Asia’s most prominent sites. The Benoy team looked to nature for inspiration and re-imagined the orchards that made up the origins of the site, continuing the theme of growth in the design: from seed to stem to tree.
