As part of this year’s Christmas festivities “Christmas on A Great Street“, the malls at Orchard Road have been dressed up for the Best Dressed Building Contest. Orchard Central came in top position again with Paragon, Tanglin Mall and The Centrepoint tailing closely.
Orchard Central was transformed into a fanciful festive Town Square – a meeting point for the community to gather and make merry. Mosaic was the key design element while the gigantic mosaic art-piece made out of green recycled bottles and outlined with energy-saving LED was the highlight OC Christmas Tree. Paragon had a musically-inclined design concept, while Tanglin Mall displayed a traditional Christmas. At The Centrepoint, it was a whimsical wintry Christmas.
The 11 participating malls include Forum The Shopping Mall, Grand Park Orchard, ION Orchard, Mandarin Gallery, Ngee Ann City, Orchard Central, Paragon, Tanglin Mall, [email protected] Plaza, The Centrepoint and Wisma Atria. Judging was based on night and day visual effect as well eco-friendly features. Decision from a panel of judges constituted 80% of the results while public voting via @Orchard app made up the remaining 20%. More than 40,000 votes were registered on the free app between 23 November and 8 December 2013. Six lucky winners who voted for the Overall Winner walked away with S$500 worth of shopping vouchers each.
