建筑设计来自Architects 61 Pte.Ltd.,建筑设计理念是通过建筑立面的反光灯箱来映射滨海湾码头的形象。

Designed by Architects 61 Pte. Ltd., the architectural design concept was to mirror the image of Marina Bay using the reflective light box facade in the day.




The four-storey mid-size theatre is envisioned as a raw and casual theatre space that is functional, accessible and welcoming. Its design integrates flexible open spaces and plazas where the Esplanade community can be creative and exploratory. These open spaces also double as pedestrian-friendly connections between the main Esplanade building and other neighbouring amenities.

Flexibility is built into the auditorium and stage design and seating configurations to accommodate various types of performances and achieve different degrees of intimacy.

The facade design draws inspiration from the strong geometry of the pre-existing domes, to which intends to pay homage. The textures are influenced by the proscenium drapes and by the complexity of the stage infrastructure.

The spaceframe overlooking the bay is shaped around a deconstructed chinese traditional shelving, injecting asian essence at domestic scale.

Blurring the boundary between the interior and the exterior, extending the waterfront experience into and within the building, invites spontaneous interaction with the public.

The High-ceiling entrance next to Makansutra, the famous hawker center, was uplit to create sense of arrival and welcome visitors and audiences to the main foyer. Meanwhile, the upper solid wall is uniformly lit to futureproof the surface for banners or advertisements.

Lighting mock-ups were conducted during design development and light source was meticulously specified to ensure the success of our design intention.

Although the light box is wrapped with the perforated panel, the facade can be seen from various different angles, lighting designers made sure that all lighting fixtures were fully integrated and concealed so that no light source is exposed to cause glare.

At dusk, the facade and interior lighting slowly comes aglow and completes the Marina Bay nightscape with its dynamic lighting effect.

People strolling along the promanade will be surprised by gentle movement of light and soft glow at the particular times, creating delightful moments of surprise.
