Super green and supersized in Singapore

Blog post Published by

The super green, ginormous eco build that is Marina One by Ingenhoven Architects in the CBD of Singapore was so big it was a challenge to photograph.  From the slightly hard impersonal exteriors you would never guess it has a soft centre.   It has beautiful curving walkways linking the 4 towers (residential and office) and it’s green oasis at the heart of the structure is rich and calming. (just don’t look up as it’s slightly overwhelming)

It’s dense – well it is the CBD,  but Singapore seems completely dedicated t0 sustainable green responsible working and living environments and this one ticks all the boxes: rainwater harvesting, energy saving ventilation along with all the right tech., it has open air public terraces and will have a food court, cafes, restaurants etc., public transport galore and a bicycle park.  It’s mixed use and outside spaces means it should have a heart beat and a warmth so many big developments lack, especially in super cities.
