The Paya Lebar features a striking Texlon® ETFE canopy that totals to 2,100 m² on a sleek steel structure. The Paya Lebar canopy was a collaboration between Vector Foiltec and architects DP Architects and Arup Singapore.

Texlon® ETFE Cladding, Beautiful and Smart Solutions to Building Facades

The Texlon® ETFE cushions of the Paya Lebar Quarter have a unique feature that allows the canopy to stand out not just in aesthetics but in added cultural values. The ETFE cushions used for the canopy consist of 2-layers, to create a unique triangular pattern as result of woven translucent and printed color ETFE foils.
This design pattern is called the Songket pattern, it is reflective of the local Malay culture and woven throughout the Paya Lebar Quarter architecture. Songekt is a traditional fabric, worn for special occasions such as weddings or religious festivals, thus its incorporation into the canopy design serves as an added value to such a culturally prominent and diverse location.
