Resembling an ice cube, this entertainment and shopping mall boasts Singapore’s first Olympic size ice skating rink. It has green features like a rainwater harvesting tank and an ice rink grey-water recycling system. With a roller blading rooftop park and IMAX theatre, this mall has become a prime destination.

The Challenge


A major focus was on sustainable design. Precast concrete panels helped to create the challenging six-sided exterior, with very low overall heat gain. A considerable amount of sustainable materials were used. Outdoor terraces and an evaporative cooling system also helped to soften and cool the mall.
