rgo was originally conceived as a bar without walls. In order to achieve this, Orgo came up with a system of interchangeable and modular structures. These shape-shifting structures made it possible for Orgo to create a glass-clad structure that weaved itself along the circular perimeter of the rooftop, creating something akin to a glass and metal sculpture. The application of glass created the opportunity to bring the outdoors indoors, and the breathtaking views of the Singapore skyline and the iconic Merlion now form the tapestry on the walls of the bar and restaurant.
Besides defining the form of the space, the structures were also conceived to be giant display cases for works by local creative and artistic talent. From its inception, art had always featured prominently in all of Orgo’s decisions. As a matter of fact, it was also the major reason for permanently locating Orgo at the Esplanade. Art will continue to be tied intricately with activities at Orgo.
