Facts

  • In 1986 the side cladding of the escalators received a Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) Micro-Architectural Design Award.
  • Wisma Atria was the first major commercial development on the south side of Orchard Road. Its massing comprises a curtain walled office tower and a porcelain enamel cladded podium. On both front and rear facades of the office tower an inverted keyhole shaped recess creates a unique feature on an otherwise uninterrupted elevation.
  • The difference in level across the site, together with the limited vehicular access, lends itself to a plan form that maximises shop frontage exposure and direct pedestrian access from the Orchard mall, while providing vehicular drop off and carpark access at the frontage off Orchard Turn. The basement has direct access into Orchard MRT station.
  • Shops are organised around an atrium cladded in crystallised glass panels. Two glass lifts and a series of escalators provide the circulation between the shopping levels. A marine aquarium, the first of its kind in a shopping complex in Singapore, is located in the basement.
  • The complex was built over the site of the former Indonesian embassy, hence the name "Wisma".
