Alexandra Central, located at the intersection of Jalan Bukit Merah and Alexandra Road, comprises the 19-storey Park Hotel Alexandra above a six-storey retail and carpark podium, with landscaped hotel facilities on the podium roof. Perched at the podium edge, the simple box of the hotel tower is supported by two six-storey columns. Near the top, a cantilevered glass box slides out from the edge to give the hotel its signature form. The linear façade facing Jalan Bukit Merah is arranged in a splay against the hotel tower and maximises frontage. In contrast, a sinuous curved façade sweeps along the entire frontage facing Alexandra Road. An expression of horizontality – from the porous façade expressed by the aluminium louvres at the car park levels, to the linear mullions in front of the glass façade at the retail floors – serves as an integral element to tie in the varied compositions of the different components.
