WAN Future Projects Residential Award 2016 for Marina One, Singapore
The Project Marina One in Singapore is the winner of the WAN Future Projects Residential Award 2016.
Marina One is green in both a literal and performative sense. Flanked by two large urban parks, it comprises two office towers, two residential towers and a retail podium set around lush greenery. While the outer face of the four towers strictly follows the city grid, the maximised inner space is a free-formed three-dimensional biodiversity garden. This "Grean Heart" will be the largest public Plaza in the Central Business District. Openings between the high-rises, sky gardens in-between the podium, the elevated towers, as well as the shape itself, improve the air flow and create a comfortable microclimate within the multiple levels of the central garden that covers up to 125% of the site area.
