BRIDGING PAST AND FUTURE
Completed in collaboration with design architect Pelli Clarke Pelli, Ocean Financial Centre occupies one of the most prominent sites in downtown Singapore, forming a gateway between the historic Raffles Place and the new Marina Bay central business districts. The tower’s elegant design celebrates Singapore’s maritime heritage, composed of two interlocking volumes that resemble a ship’s sail, culminating in a gently sloping roof crown that adds a poetic silhouette to the city skyline.
The building’s sophisticated curtain wall features horizontal bands of anodized aluminium and glass, integrated with LED lights that illuminate the façade and roof crown at night. Four levels of roof gardens within the crown enhance the transparency of the tower as it reaches skyward, and provide a green oasis for occupants.
The Public Plaza, which marks one entrance to the building, is shaded by a 27-metre-high steel and glass canopy in the shape of a martini glass, covered with a pattern of translucent glass panels that cast a collage of coloured light on the ground.
The building’s green and sustainable features include the largest assembly of photovoltaic cell systems at the roof comprising 400 sqm of solar panels, and a record-breaking vertical green wall that serves to screen the podium carpark and enhance the Public Plaza with lush greenery.
