World's first double helix bridge at the opening of the Singapore River

The Helix Bridge is the pedestrian link across Singapore's Marina Bay connecting its established CBD to its new city centre. In connecting old with new, it was conceived by the Singapore Government as a key lasting symbol of the city and its values. Specifically, the plan forms an arc to embrace its corner of the bay and to resolve its meeting of shorelines which are perpendicular to each other. A further requirement was for it to be shade-canopied along its length to ameliorate the tropical sun.

Cox Architecture's solution of a double helix structure arose from the combination of the curved plan and the possibility of integrating structure, deck, canopy and lighting into a whole, the concept succeeding in an international design competition. Philosophically, the foundation of the design lays in the structure of the DNA molecule; its inherent strength yet delicacy of appearance from across and on the bay and along its journey.

The overall 15 metre diameter of the dual helix structure creates a continuous low profile bridge featuring triumphant arches and / or masts. The aim was to celebrate and engage human scale of experience rather than heroic gesture, together with the typology's ability to simultaneously create span, shelter and an undulating weaving of enclosure that accompanies the journey along the bridge.

The Helix Bridge is used by over 100,000 people per week both connecting to cultural and entertainment destinations on both sides, but evidently for the experience in its own right. It has rapidly become the symbol of a socially interactive city that its Government sought. Stainless steel integrated with continuous LED lighting creates an experience of refinement and drama from day to night.

Aedas completes Sentosa Boardwalk in Singapore

The Sentosa Boardwalk is built on a new structure, over the sea and abutting the existing Sentosa Bridge, with an overall length of 670 metres. The Boardwalk mainly serves as a link to facilitate pedestrian flow between the two neighboring development, connecting the Sentosa Island with Vivocity seamlessly. Situated near the apex of the Southern Ridges, the Boardwalk design seeks to extend this greenbelt into the Sentosa Island in celebration of tropical living in Singapore.

5 landscape themes which best represents the tropical mood, - the mangrove swamp, rock garden, rolling hills and terrain, costal floral and tropical rainforest - are introduced along the boardwalk to orchestrate a diversified environment to evoke an ever-changing experience along the bridge. With an area of 16,400 sq m, the timber deck is designed to push the boundaries of a bridge beyond a means of transport, by assuming of a role as a public space, allowing users to rest, play and dine along a lush garden set on the sea front.

To incorporate these spaces while maintaining the imagery of a timber bridge, the timber surfaces peel and fold organically to carve out spaces, seating and undulating terrain. This creates an aesthetic interplay of contrast between the intended rustic experiences, with the contemporary urban setting. Situated along the sea front, the permeability and openness of the circulatory spaces ensures that users are constantly exposed to natural elements such as sun, sea breeze and lush greenery while visually connected to the sea view in the horizon. This seamless connection with adjacent development seeks to encourage users to step into the open and embrace nature.

Night lighting created by light sculptures placed along the boardwalk is subtle at the start of the journey from Vivocity and progressively illuminates brighter towards the climax at the end of the Boardwalk. This creates a dynamic identity of the Boardwalk and a sense of anticipation of entering the vibrant Sentosa Island.

Renewed city park and river breathes new life to community

Ang Mo Kio - Bishan Park is Singapore’s most visited local park where a concrete drainage channel along the park edges has been turned into a beautiful naturalised river that meanders through the park. This project is part of the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme, a long-term national initiative to transform the country’s water bodies beyond their functions of drainage and water supply, into beautiful and clean streams, rivers and lakes with new spaces for community bonding and recreation.

The new park provides many new facilities including three new playgrounds, two new restaurants, toilets and the landmark 'Recycle Hill', a look-out point built from blocks of concrete recycled from the old concrete channel. The park is open 24/7 and is at the centre of local life; it is the place to do tai chi, walk your dog and just get out in the fresh air. But the absolute highlight is the naturalised Kallang River which runs through the park. The soft, planted river banks allow people to get close to the water and in the case of a heavy downpour, the park land that is next to the river doubles up as a conveyance channel, carrying the water downstream.

Within the park, water cleansing elements are integrated into the landscape - a cleansing biotope feeds clean water to a water playground and drains have been converted into swales. Water is celebrated throughout the park! Ang Mo Kio - Bishan Park is an inspiring example of how a city park can function as ecological infrastructure, a smart combination of water source, flood management, biodiversity, recreation, and thanks to personal contact and an emotional connection with water, increasing civic responsibility towards water.

Translucent canopy allows natural light to filter into Marina Bay's underground station

The new Marina Bay MRT Station serves as an Interchange station to connect the North-South Line with the new Circle Line. Currently located on open land adjacent to Marina Bay Station Road and the East Coast Parkway the station will eventually be integrated into a new central park as part of the new Marina Bay Central Business District Development.

The design brief required the station to integrate successfully and seamlessly with the existing NSL station and the proposed Station Park, with provisions for connections into the future adjacent sales sites and the Underground Pedestrian Network. The architectural language of the station was required to provide a strong identity and establish the station as a unique and recognisable facility within the new CBD without compromising the required urban view corridor through the station entrance and park.

To minimise the visual impact of the station on the surrounding park landscape, all ventilation openings within the immediate vicinity of the station entrance have been maintained below eye level. All emergency exits and BOH access have been arranged along a sunken pathway, so that only the lift, the entrance glazed enclosure and the lightweight ETFE canopy are visible at street level, allowing full views through the station entrance into the park.

The translucent ETFE canopy acts as a skylight, allowing natural light to filter through the large openings and penetrate right into the underground station hall and affording views from the hall below up to the sky.

Water features in the form of reflective pools have been introduced to provide a calming transition area between the station entrances and the park. At the same time the pools frame the open large voids and skylights as a safety barrier which help to maintain the station character as a light, welcoming structure.

M+S unveils design of S$3b 'Duo'
By Adeline Paul RajPublished: 2012/11/15
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2CIsqI8Zv



M+S Pte Ltd, a property alliance between Malaysia and Singapore, expects to launch its over S$3 billion (RM7.53 billion) integrated development on the island republic's Ophir-Rochor area early next year.

The project "Duo" is one of two S$11 billion developments that M+S plans to undertake over six plots of land in Singapore.

The other project, known as Marina One covering four plots of land at the Marina South area, is also expected to be launched early next year, chairman Tan Sri Azman Yahya said.

Duo comprises two towers, one is residential with 660 premium units, while the other one is commercial with Grade A office space, a five-star hotel and a retail gallery, all set within a park-like environment.

The project was designed by world-renowned architect Ole Scheeren, whose work includes the iconic China Central Television Headquarters building in Beijing, the MahaNakhon tower in Bangkok and the Angkasa Raya building in Kuala Lumpur.

Duo, with a gross floor area of about 1.8 million square feet, is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2017.

"We expect to launch sales for Duo, which has a gross development value in excess of S$3 billion, in the early part of next year," Azman told reporters at its design unveil here yesterday.

He declined to reveal the cost of the project or the pricing of the residential units as yet, saying only that they would be "competitive".

About half the residential units are expected to be taken up by foreigners, he said, adding that these would typically comprise Malaysians, Indonesians and Chinese.

"Interest so far has been promising, so we do expect to fill up the space by the time it's completed in 2017," he remarked.

CapitaLand Ltd is Duo's project manager, while UEM Land Holdings Bhd will handle sales and marketing.

Malaysia's state investment firm Khazanah Nasional Bhd has a 60 per cent stake in M+S, while the rest of the company is held by its Singapore counterpart Temasek Holdings (Private) Ltd.

The joint venture stemmed from a land swap deal that the two countries agreed upon in 2010 as a result of the relocation of Malayan Railway land in Singapore M+S secured loans totalling S$5 billion earlier this year from eight banks in Singapore, including DBS, OCBC and Maybank, which will be used to finance the Duo and Marina One projects.

Azman said the company isn't seeking additional financing.

M+S expects to secure an international operator for its over 300-room hotel, which will sit atop the 39-storey commercial tower, in the later part of next year, he said. The residential tower comprises 50 storeys and scales 192 metres.

The project won an award in the "Best Futura Project" category at the recent MIPIM Asia Awards 2012 in Hong Kong.
