Green Heart

Mixed-use development at the centre of Singapore’s business district aims to become its signature real estate development. Its brief is to define new standards of luxury urban living and to create an international benchmark for design and sustainability excellence.
Understanding how public space is used in Singapore is fundamental to London based  Gustafson Porter landscape architecture design approach.
There is often a preconception that the climate is too hot and humid to make active use of outdoor space. But by breaking down the barriers between air conditioned interior space and exterior shaded space, we can still create spaces to dwell which are softened by plants, with a light breeze and the sound of water movement. With a positive attitude, one can enhance the quality of experience and make better use of the public realm within this development and the surrounding city.
Marina One’s is one of the first developments of its type to integrate soft landscape into the fabric of the building. Called the ‘Green Heart’, Marina One’s elevated public garden sits between its four high-rise towers, creating a seamless transition between a sculptural, planted landscape and architecture.
The vertical garden is designed with lower and mid-level ‘sky terraces’ offering lush vegetation, spectacular waterfalls and calm reflecting pools. The planting is designed to create inspiring and multi-functional urban spaces to be enjoyed by all in Singapore.
