Marina One officially opens
The largest green urban sanctuary in Singapore's CBD was officially opened on Monday 15th January by Mr Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of the Republic of Singapore and Dato' Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Marina One is an innovative, highly sustainable, high-density building complex in the Marina Bay financial district which upholds the city’s ambition to become a “City within a Garden”. Comprised of four-towers arranged around a central courtyard, the scheme integrates an extensive planted landscape into the fabric of the building.
Our design for the central ‘Green Heart’ unifies the sculptural and planted elements of the building’s architecture. While the outer face of the four towers (designed by Ingenhoven architects) adhere to the city grid, the maximised inner space allows the building to hold a densely-planted garden within. Developed in collaboration with ICN Design International, the planting concept at Marina One varies with the building’s height.
The development is located within Singapore’s Marina Bay financial district, a 360-hectare expanse of reclaimed land on the city’s waterfront. Marina One’s towers meet the “LEED Platinum Pre-certification” and the local “Green Mark Platinum” standards for
their sustainable design.
M+S Developments was privileged to have Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib and Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officially open Marina One and DUO with a ceremony in Marina One’s Green Heart yesterday. The Green Heart has blossomed with incredible lush greenery and hundreds of different plant species. Visitors can get away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD in the Green Heart’s tranquil oasis and experience tantalising dining and exciting retail options that now call Marina One “home”.

Day 18- My favorite architecture discovery in Singapore. One of the most outstanding combination of urban delight and tropical nature. Multi awarded building, Marina One has just been inaugurated a few months ago. Marina One in the centre of Singapore is Ingenhoven architects largest project. As an international role model for living and working, Marina One makes an innovative contribution to the discourse on mega-cities, especially in tropical regions, which, in the context of increasing population and climate change, face enormous challenges. The core concept for „Marina One“, which consists of a group of four high-rise buildings, is based on a shared central space—the „Green Heart“—which was designed by ingenhoven architects in close cooperation with landscape architects Gustafson Porter + Bowman. The interaction between the geometry of the buildings and the garden facilitates natural ventilation and generates an agreeable microclimate. #marinaone #marinaonesingapore #southeastasia #architectureawards #Ingenhoven #environmentalarchitecture #Gustafson Porter + Bowman #marinaone #innovation #asiannotes #southeastasia
Having photographed @marina.one.official by @ingenhovenarchitects for the last four years, it’s surreal to see it complete and so occupied. In another six months or so when the reinstatement works around the site are complete, it would be like the #megastructure was always there. . . . #ingenhovenarchitects #christophingenhoven #marinaone #marinabaysg #cbd #singapore #sgarchitecture #archdaily #archivingsg #architecture #architecturesg #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #singaporearchitecture #sonya7riii #sonyalpha #sonyalphaphotos #sonyalphaprofessionals @marinabaysg
