Rising majestically above the financial centre of the Marina Bay and the captivating Principality of Singapore, Marina One takes luxurious living to dazzling new heights. The collective vision of developer M + S, Ingenhoven Architects, Gustafson Porter, Architect 61 and landscape scape consultant ICN Design International made this possible.
Flanked by two large urban parks, it comprises of two office towers, two residential towers and a retail podium set around lush greenery. Marina One was due for completion in 2018 and set a new gold standard in residential lifestyle, not just for Singapore but for the world. Marina One offers a unique opportunity to live in the ultimate home.
To achieve an integral concept of supergreen®, Ingenhoven Architects implemented a comprehensive and ambitious architectural approach. Marina One aims to regreen the city. Its office towers meet the “LEED Platinum Pre-certification” and the local “Green Mark Platinum” standards for their sustainable design.
The 30-storey towers, each with a floor area of 175,000 sq m, feature two sky gardens and two high-density floors on levels 28 and 29. The high-density floors will be the largest “Grade-A” office floors in Singapore. The luxurious “Marina One Residences” are housed in the two 34-storey towers with 1,042 city residences ranged in size from one to four bedroom units and penthouses. The building footprint is penetrated by air wells and slots to ensure natural ventilation for all of the units, thus meeting the stringent green mark platinum criteria.
In addition to a compact and efficient building layout, the environmentally-smart design also features energy-saving ventilation systems, a highly effective external sun-shading system and high performance glazing to reduce direct solar radiation into the building. NEWater (centrally provided recycled water) for toilet flushing and a rainwater harvesting system reduce water consumption. PV cells make use of the sun’s energy. Furthermore, the direct connection to four out of the six Singaporean MRT lines and bus stations as well as the provision of bicycle parking spaces and e-car loading lots significantly reduce emissions caused by individual traffic.
Embedded in Marina One is a multiple Level Green Heart. This will be a civic sanctuary larger than any existing public plaza in the CBD of Singapore. A variety of restaurants and cafes, a fitness club, a food court, a large supermarket and event spaces are located on the different public terraces, not only providing all the local resources and services required to serve the residents, office workers and visitors, but also creating a vibrant public destination.
Escape from the hectic pace of modern life to an oasis of tranquility in the Green Heart. Let the blissful surrounds of Oriental-inspired manicured water gardens and warm-toned bodies soothe your mind and spirit.
