Pelli Clarke Pelli Singapore Project Rated LEED PlatinumSeptember 1st, 2011 | Category: Industry News
Glass played a significant part in the design of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects’ newest completed office tower, Ocean Financial Centre in Singapore, which opened yesterday. The 43-story tower features a curving glass-and-metal exterior wall and is the first office building in Southeast Asia to achieve a LEED Platinum rating for its core and shell as well as the
first to receive the Platinum Green Mark Award from the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore, according to the architects.
Recalling the maritime heritage of Singapore, the tower was designed to be reminiscent of a ship’s sail, its bowed form curving along the street. It also has 400 square meters of photovoltaic panels, the largest installation of any office tower in Singapore, according to the architects.
Ocean Financial Centre contains 82,200 square meters of grade-A office space, and is one of the largest office developments in the historic financial district of Raffles Place.
