mixed-use marina one complex by ingenhoven architects tops out in singapore

‘marina one’ is a high-density, mixed-use complex located at the heart of singapore’s marina bay financial district. the building, which has been designed by german firm ingenhoven architects, has now topped out ahead of its anticipated completion at the beginning of 2017. flanked by large parks, the development comprises two office towers, two residential towers, and a retail podium. while the outer face of the four towers follows the city grid, the inner core forms a three-dimensional void. this ‘green heart’ is the largest public plaza in singapore’s central business district. openings between the elevated towers, as well as the shape of the structure itself, improve the air flow and create a comfortable internal microclimate.

through the design of ‘marina one’, ingenhoven architects aims to ‘regreen the city’. two 30-storey towers feature two sky gardens and two ‘high-density floors’ on levels 28 and 29 — the largest grade-A office floors in singapore. luxury residences are housed within two 34-storey structures with 1,042 units ranging in size from one to four bedroom apartments and penthouses. the building footprint is penetrated by air wells and slots to ensure natural ventilation.

the compact building features energy saving ventilation systems, an external sun-shading device, and high performance glazing to reduce direct solar radiation into the building. centrally provided recycled water is used for toilet flushing, while a rainwater harvesting system reduces further consumption. in addition, carefully positioned photovoltaic cells make use of the sun’s energy.

direct connections to four of the six singaporean MRT lines and bus stations — as well as the provision of bicycle parking spaces and e-car loading lots — significantly reduces emissions caused by car traffic. restaurants and cafés, a fitness club, a food court, a large supermarket and even event spaces are located on the different public terraces, creating a vibrant public destination.
