The Singapore Racecourse was a rare opportunity for CPG Consultants to explore and assemble a variety of building forms — the parade ring canopy of striking geometry juxtaposed against the sweeping line of the grandstand, the huge multi-storey car parks, stables for housing more than 1,000 horses and other structures.
Together, this collage of varying sizes and forms defines the essentials of modern-day racing to create a distinctive skyline. A highly sophisticated structural system of cantilevered steel roof trusses is used to suspend two of the four levels of the viewing gallery. Some other interesting features include the dramatic stainless steel roof profile that symbolises powerful horses in motion, a grandstand that is a visual feast to the patrons, and the full-height mullion-less glass wall and column-free interior space that offer breathtaking views of the three racetracks.
