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 “Green 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.
