Text description provided by the architects. The design of the award-winning Sail @ Marina Bay derives inspiration from Singapore’s port environment—the air, wind and water—and its diverse international population. Viewed from across the bay, the 63- and 70-story glass-clad towers rise from a sculpted base to resemble wind-blown sails. At 245 meters tall, the Sail @ Marina Bay prominently carves out the leading edge of Singapore’s emerging new skyline.

Designed to advance Singapore's leadership as a global “Live Work Play” destination, the Sail @ Marina Bay features 1,111 residences—the first Marina Bay project to introduce residential units—restaurants, health clubs, recreation decks with pools and tennis courts and car-park facilities. To create a true 24/7 lifestyle environment in the heart of the Central Business District (CBD), and to help reduce traffic, congestion and smog, the Sail @ Marina Bay is designed to directly access the MRT and park amenities along the waterfront. Retail, dining and work environments are all within an easy walk.

Careful site orientation provides 65 percent of the apartments with panoramic vistas of Marina Bay and the CBD’s cultural, entertainment and retail areas. Six-star penthouses offer breathtaking views of the sea and islands beyond. This thoughtful planning has yielded great success for the project: Tower One units sold out in two weeks; Tower Two in two days; with sale prices setting new records for the Southeast Asia residential market.

The design sets new safety and sustainability standards for all of Marina Bay. The innovative yet economical structural solution couples a shear-wall and foundation system—a first for the Singapore—to withstand seismic criteria, resulting in one of the safest buildings in the country. The exterior facade uses insulated low-E glass to reduce solar heat gain and lower air-conditioning demands—another first for Singapore residential towers—while taking full advantage of spectacular views with floor-to-ceiling glass in many units.

The building is BCA Green Mark Gold Certified (Singapore’s sustainable building criteria), integrating features such as a seven-story car park greenwall along a new pedestrian linkage connecting Raffles Quay to a proposed central park; improving the residents’ overall air-quality and living experience and creating a new public space for the City.
