Parkview Square, Singapore Overview

Standing tall on North Bridge Road, Parkview Square is one of the grandest and most expensive office buildings in Singapore. Built in an exquisite Art Deco style of architecture, this building houses the Honorary Consulate of Oman, and the embassies of the United Arab Emirates, Austria and Mongolia. It is also nicknamed the Gotham-building because of the striking similarities to the buildings of the fictional city. A floor-to-ceiling 3-storey high wine cellar lies in the lobby marking the presence of the bar and dining space, ATLAS. The ambient floor lights and the comfortable armchairs make this bar a luxuriant experience.

The magnificent Parkview Square is home to a contemporary art gallery and museum on its third floor. Outside the building, there are several bronze statues inspired by artists such as Salvador Dali, Plato and Sun Yat-Sen. The centre of this courtyard is a piece called the Golden Crane Statue, which depicts a crane in pre-flight mode, craving to go back to its homeland, China. The crane itself points towards China as well. The Parkview Square building is a beautiful building and an absolute extravagant sight. Even if you decide to not go inside the building, the courtyard is also an experience of a different sort.

Parkview Square Atlas Bar

Stepping into the lobby of Parkview Square, one can almost feel as though they've been transported to the 1920s. The golden and bronze interiors, Jazz background music, leather-adorned armchairs, mezzanine Juliet balconies, and ambient floor lights of ATLAS are truly a luxurious experience. The highlight, though, is the 12-metre high backlit wine tower which stores around 3000 bottles of wine, and an exquisite collection of 200 vintage wines. The tower houses some of Asia's finest gin, champagne and spirits from all around the world. Those who want a meal are welcome to try from their menu of delectable European dishes as well.

ATLAS is an extravagant, luxurious experience, and hence, a proper dress code is always expected. No shorts, slippers or activewear are recommended to be worn.

The Golden Crane Statue

The Golden Crane Statue is installed right in the centre of the courtyard of the Parkview Square. The statue stands on a raised platform from where it appears that the crane is about to take off. The Golden Crane Statue is facing in the Northwest direction (towards China) and complies with the principles of Feng Shui. There is also a small poem written under the statue that expresses its yearning to fly and reaching its destination.

Architecture of Parkview Square

Singapore's Parkview Square is one of the most expensive office buildings in the region. It is also known as Gotham Square as it resembles the Gotham City. The structure is designed by an American design firm with a Singapore based architecture firm. The inspiration for it is taken from the Chanin Building of the United States. 

The Parkview Square building is a blend of contemporary and conventional designs with a modern interior office space and splendid traditional motifs on the exteriors with dark granite, bronze and light fixtures that render it a regal look. This is a one of a kind commercial office complex that is decorated with intricate and opulent artworks inside. As one makes way to the lobby, one can find the Divine Wine Bar Society which is three-story high wine chiller stocked with more than a thousand bottles of booze. 

Parkview Square structure is painted in sandy yellow colour symbolising prosperity and steadiness. On the outside, there is a huge open space that is decorated with eight fancy statues of men along the courtyard. These statues have a touch of Gothic style and each man holds a crystal ball in hand portraying himself to be the guardian of the building.
