Both these planned development areas are at the city front where they benefit from excellent transport connections and from the coastal strip yet to be utilized. Through their size and the emblematic character of the design “The Bridge and the Tower” emerge as symbols in a visual and spatial relationship to the metropolis and accompany the city alongside the new coastal strip to the new horizons of its future development.
“The Bridge” is on Sentosa Island, which is entirely devoted to the concept of family leisure and is easy to reach from Singapore. In this resort two overlapping wings mark the harbor entry of the new marina. The complex is organized around the large entrance hall, from the hotel in the upper wing and the casino hovering above the water to the entertainment areas at ground floor level. The entrance hall also opens towards the outdoor facilities, which, in addition to pleasure parks, long sections of beach and luxury villas, also harbor other attractions.
Directly beside the city center of Singapore, “The Tower” is located on a site which is yet to be developed. From its base, divided by a pedestrian zone, “The Tower” rises on two legs that meet at around the middle and from there rise vertically together. The entrance to the resort is located directly under the legs; you enter a kind of lobby that spans the pedestrian zone like a bridge and connects all the building’s functions.
