Bringing the entire ecosystem under one roof, Cloud 11 features a creator retail podium, creative workplaces, smart hotels, tech education, and an arena for live performances and e-sports competition. Inspired by its rich surroundings, Cloud 11 stacks three layers of urban contexts –shophouses, elevated paths and the city skyline – creating the captivating “in-between” void. Inherits and interprets the scale, rhythm, proﬁle and skyline.
The two landscape ramps framed by striking architectural portals connect the elevated park – inviting the neighborhood to engage with the creator community at Cloud11. The public park serves as a resilient green pulse in the neighborhood, incorporating natural-driven systems and self-shading design.
