Award Entry

Mapletree Business City is designed to exceed the needs of the modern business 

Located along the Alexandra / Telok Blangah business corridor, Mapletree Business City is adjacent to Singapore’s vital Harbourfront precinct and just 10 minutes from Central Business District. The Grade-A business development comprises 4 blocks that includes extensive amenities, lush landscape and recreation amenities and business space facilities in 184,000 sq m leasable area. With Hort Park just a stone throw’s away, this office development was designed with a park-like, green environment that also functions as an extension of the national parks network surrounding the area.

Key architectural concepts of the block planning are the orientation of building blocks, giving a subtle relationship to the buildings and context. These include gentle shifting and angling of the pure forms on the site such that their presence is felt upon approaching on the elevated highway fronting the site as well as from other view planes.

The lifting up of the main building masses higher than the adjacent elevated highway enable tenants to view to the sea from all the office spaces. This also helps to create the grand and elegant lobbies for each of the buildings. The façade layering of form created by interplay of horizontal aluminium blades. Overall, the MBC in its design offers a subtle dynamism that can be seen and felt in both the vertical and horizontal dimensions and creating a presence in its surrounding context

MBC strive to achieve energy efficient building, with high performance cooling tower, M&E systems, and also play part in helping Singapore to conserve scarce water resources. It takes responsibility to minimise its carbon footprint by minimising use of concrete, environmental building materials that are certified under Singapore Green Labelling Scheme, and selection of materials with high recycled contents.

Winner of the Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) Green Mark Platinum Award – the highest accolade for green buildings in Singapore, Mapletree Business City has been designed to support, enhance and exceed the needs of modern business with environmentally conscious efforts and consideration.
