Marina Bay Sands – Hotel and SkyPark by Safdie Architects
Location: Singapore
Status: Ongoing

Linked at the 57th floor by an expansive and lush 2.5 acre garden skypark, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel represents a new urban typology characterized by its interconnectedness, both at the ground level and in the sky. The 2,500 room hotel is organized into three 57-story towers joined together at the ground level by a public, pedestrian thoroughfare linking to public transit, the Integrated Resort at large and the surrounding city networks. The sky park includes gardens, restaurants, a one of a kind infinity edge pool, and a public observation deck.

Marina Bay Sands combines more than 120,000 square meters (nearly 1.3 million square feet) of world-class convention and exhibition facilities; three 56-storey hotel towers containing more than 2600 rooms in total; a 1-hectare (2.5-acre) sky park capping the towers, which offers 360-degree views of the city and sea and outdoor amenities for the hotel including swimming pools, restaurants and gardens; an iconic ArtScience Museum on the promontory; two state of the art theatres with 4000 seats; a casino; a wide array of shopping and dining outlets; and an outdoor event plaza along the promenade that can accommodate up to 10,000 people.

The project is more than the sum of its buildings, it is an entirely new urban sector of Singapore, a vital district that is connected with nature, interactive, of a human scale, and climatically sustainable. The seamlessness of indoor and outdoor public space is a hallmark of Marina Bay Sands and a major factor in its success.

The hotel is designed to align with the URA’s longterm planning objective to complete the ring of development around the Marina Bay water basin. Working with the URA guidelines, the building is set back from the waterfront edge and visually porous so as to open views from the CBD to the Singapore Strait beyond. At street level, the design includes a grand, connecting atrium lobby which extends the city’s public pedestrian network.

Three towers with large voids between them frame the views to the sea from downtown. Each “double-loaded” tower spreads at its base to form the atrium at the lower levels, with glazed connections in-between. From south to north, the size of the atrium narrows from tower to tower. The west facade is glazed to maximize the views of Marina Bay and the Singapore skyline. The Sky Park is a shaped structure constructed of spanning steel bridges hovering over the concrete towers below. The spaces between the hotel and park above are designed as glass pavilions with open views to the park overhead, home to restaurants, lounges and a high end spa.

The 151-meter-long swimming pool appears to have a vanishing edge, and offers sweeping views to the west. At 66.5 meters length, the observation deck is the longest occupable cantilevered structure in the world.
