MILLENNIAL MODERN LIVING

An orchestrated arrival, 15 curated gardens, spacious and functional unit layout, each with its private view, and a one-of-a-kind architectural design. Understated, elegant, 21st century luxury — this is Martin Modern, designed by the four-time President’s Design Award winning architect, Yip Yuen Hong.

On approaching Martin Modern, Yip’s signature tropical brutalist sensibilities will immediately arrest your attention and capture your imagination. It is part of GuocoLand’s deliberate strategy to create something distinctive, and Yip, known for his bold and visionary architectural statements, was the choice architect. He says of his own architecture, “It might surprise you at first glance, and because of that, it compels you to want to take a second look, … it is about creating a timeless design that you grow to love more and more the longer you stay.”

Spearheading the vision for Martin Modern is Cheng Hsing Yao (Group Managing Director of GuocoLand Singapore) who is intent on creating a sanctuary of greenery, a physical and spiritual sanctum that gives respite from the busyness of city living.

Cheng sees the need to champion an evolution — if not a revolution — in the design of the new condominium. Martin Modern, through its strong architectural presence, has a magic and tranquillity that coaxes you to relax and recharge. Martin Modern is defined as much by its softscape as it is by the hardscape. In fact, as one meanders through the series of gardens tiered to the terrain of the site, the journey culminates at the enchanting secret garden.

The luxurious secret garden at the rooftop is Cheng’s unconventional but strategic approach to inject uniqueness here. Responding to the global trend of creating customised amenities driven by locations for luxury condominiums residents, Martin Modern presents the best view and experience to be enjoyed by all the residents. This is a reader’s point of quietude but can easily be transformed for weekend parties as well. There are two lush dining areas on the rooftop for hosting private parties and entertaining guests under a gorgeous night sky surrounded by an opulence of shimmery silver greenery.

Martin Modern sits on rich heritage that provides both the master architect and landscape architect conceptual and visual inspiration to draw from. Aesthetically, Yip feels particularly drawn to the textures and feel of the old godowns and doing what he does best — creating beauty out of rawness. Conceptually, he is inclined to extract from the past to create the future. In particular, the secret garden at the rooftop is largely inspired by the qualities of the old godowns.

The history of the site has also a direct influence over the landscape architecture. Drawing references from the Singapore River, one of the two key concepts in the landscaping is to celebrate “expressions of water”; and lifting inspiration from the nearby historical greenery of Fort Canning and the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the other key concept is to preserve our “Botanical Heritage”. Using key tropical species to guide the 15 curated gardens which span 80% of the site area (with the building footprint standing on only 20% of the land), this might be the most generous private garden that anyone can possess.

Looking set to be a Singapore architectural icon, Martin Modern is a forward-looking property that redefines the aesthetics of luxury condominiums and ups the game in defining the standards of luxury living. In placing equal importance on both form and function, Martin Modern stands by the GuocoLand philosophy of designing from inside out. Great emphasis is placed on a good floor plan that ensures a workable expanse of spaces; only the best and exclusive building materials are used and every single unit is entitled to a view.

So how is a luxury condominium re-defined in GuocoLand terms? Cheng sums it up, “The hallmarks of a GuocoLand luxury property are great location, high quality and poetic ambience. Martin Modern bears all these characteristics and exudes a luxury that is sophisticated and liveable.”

CHENG HSING YAO, GROUP MANAGING DIRECTOR

What did ip:li Architects bring to the development?

Besides fulfilling our brief, Yuen Hong also brought poetry and craftsmanship to the project. The building is like a hand-crafted sculpture. Moving through Martin Modern is similar to going on a journey of discovery and surprises. The architecture of Martin Modern is very unique. It always feels luxurious and lush, but more importantly, it feels “real”. It gives you a strong feeling of familiarity, as if it has been there all along. This familiarity is powerful, and pertinent to this day and age, when things around us change so rapidly.

How have the landscapes created by ICN given a unique identity to Martin Modern?

ICN has combined the science of botany and horticulture and the art of aesthetics to create a “botanic garden” with more than 200 species of trees and plants. Many of the species are significant scientifically and historically. What I find truly amazing are the 15 different gardens and spaces, each with a very different character and ambience. Depending on your mood or the activity you have in mind, you can choose to go to a different part of the botanic garden.

Who is your target resident for Martin Modern?

The person is cosmopolitan, savvy and sophisticated.

A four-time winner of the prestigious President’s Design Award, Yip Yuen Hong is a firm believer in functionality and simplicity and he seeks to create designs that are both timeless and explorative.

Born in Singapore, he obtained his graduate degree in architecture from the National University of Singapore. He has worked with the Housing and Development Board, and established firms like William Lim & Associates and Arkitek Tenggara II. With a vision that gives equal importance to the pursuit of creativity

and innovation with productivity, he and his partner, Lee Ee Lin, founded ip:li Architects in 2002.

For Yuen Hong, architecture is more than a profession; it is also an explorative search and a personal journey. His practice is driven by curiosity and a solution-based approach to design. With a varied and accomplished portfolio in his name, he seeks to create designs that are subtle both in form and approach, yet, innovative and soulful in character.

MASTER ARCHITECT

YIP YUEN HONG, PRINCIPAL

Every artist and designer has a particular interest that inspires him or her. What drives you in your architectural designs?

I have always been very inspired by the work of Eduardo Chillida, the Spanish Basque sculptor known for his colossal abstract sculptures. His works of art have this rawness and power about them that thoroughly fascinates me.

However, what really inspires me is my audience, particularly my clients and future residents. When you design for people, you are extremely conscious about its functionality and utility.

I like to explain this approach by using an analogy of one of my favourite jazz musicians, Keith Jarett. His music often starts off with a recognisable melody and then slowly wanders off into something truly magical before finally returning again to that familiar tune.

Architecture, for me, should be like that. It has to be something that people can relate to but at the same time, within that recognition they must be able to find something that is different and unique — something that will give them a sense of magic.

This is a collaborative project between ip:li Architects and GuocoLand. How did you manage to marry the philosophies of the two companies in this design?

ip:li Architects has always strived for a certain way of living — a sense of comfort and timelessness in all aspects, from the day-to- day activities to the architecture of the space. GuocoLand too, aims to continuously provide an effortless luxury for the people.

The philosophies of both companies coincide and our approaches are quite similar, making this collaboration capable of developing a promising product.

Most projects taken up by ip:li in the past have been Good Class Bungalows. This is the first time that your strong design language will be delivered to a much bigger audience. How do you balance your artistic approach with the demands of the public?

I would have never been able to manage this balance if it wasn’t for the people. I design for them and they are the inspiration for the strength in my designs.

In all these years of working on Good Class Bungalows, I’ve noticed a change in the wealthy in this country. There is now a receptivity and sophistication which is different from what I saw in the past. Their viewpoints have shifted to an almost poetic kind of sensibility.

Today, everyone is well-travelled and knowledgeable. They have seen and experienced things that have completely altered their outlook. They understand that luxury is not synonymous with highly polished surfaces and glass walls. I was never afraid that my

unconventional style would not appeal to my audience, because I truly believe that people are ready for such an interpretation.

What were some of your initial inspirations for the design of Martin Modern?

The area that Martin Modern is situated in has a strong historical background. It used to be a warehouse district, with large storage units towering over the green area, primarily occupied by nutmeg plantations. I wanted to incorporate that into my design to recapture some of that historical spirit.

Warehouses have a unique charm to them, in terms of the textures and the loftiness of space. We wanted to extrapolate these elements and design a development that, in some capacity, reflected on the landscape that existed before. The crowns of the two towers, for instance, can be visually compared to gutted-out warehouse structures housing a secret garden within them. The nutmeg plantations, on the other hand, give the space a lush, green look. We wanted to return as much of the greenery as possible to the land.

These were the two most important historical elements that inspired us to incorporate such raw textures and extensive greenery to the design.

What is the identity you have tried to craft for Martin Modern that sets it apart from other luxury condominiums in Singapore?

In order to heighten the sense of luxury and grandeur, we wanted to give the development an identity that juxtaposes the rawness of materials with the sophistication of design.

The exteriors of the building structures have a rugged look, which may be daunting for some, but when viewed as a whole, with the rough structures standing tall in the midst of a collage of greenery, the space becomes quite magical.

There was a deliberate effort made to orchestrate a heightened sense of arrival for Martin Modern. Could you talk more about the intent and strategy?

The intention behind this strategy ties in with our aim to create a botanical garden space in the midst of the city. Martin Modern is located in a very busy area and we wanted to create an enclave to which one can retreat. The minute you drive into the development, the tall walls, the expansive green spaces and the all- embracing plantations carry you into a slower and more relaxed world. It will be like your home being situated in an environment completely different from the outside world.

What are some of the elements in this design that speak of luxury in terms of functionality?

No matter how small the space is, I try to incorporate a sense of spaciousness. Without that, the magic cannot happen.

The lavishness of Martin Modern exists in its expanse and the views that have been created. From the size of the windows to the manoeuvring of the towers, the space has been carefully considered to deliver this feeling of spaciousness and openness.

A few decades ago, luxury was defined by fashion brands and material objects. How do you think this concept fits in with architecture?

If you draw a parallel between fashion and luxury living, there are a few commonalities. Fashion, for instance, draws inspiration from the streets or the lifestyles people desire. Therefore, it is not always about incorporating the most sophisticated and stylish materials, but juxtaposing materials in a manner that represents luxury and style. Architecture functions the same way. Through the years, people have come to understand the concept of luxury, not as something defined by its materiality and richness but as something that is authentic and innovative.

Where, for you, does the “modern” come into this design?

The modernity in this development is not just in the use of smart technology or provision for services, but in the way the future residents will perceive the space.

“Modern” is no longer defined by material objects, but by the way we understand and perceive things. We have evolved from the stereotype of luxury in terms of materiality to a greater understanding of what it means to live lavishly. Modernity is moving forward to a luxury of space rather than that of materials and that is the approach this development introduces.

Speaking of the architecture, the roof gardens at the top of the towers sound like an exciting endeavour! What is the design language that was used in those spaces and what were the inspirations behind it?

ICN: The architectural qualities of the space — the crown and the material design — gave us a very unique environment to work with up there. The plants are very protected and there are various views of the Singapore River and cityscape. The plants used in this area are species that can survive in high altitudes. These species have a different sort of variation in terms of colour — sometimes, they even have a silverish sheen to them. This gave us an opportunity to add to the architecture and design of the space with the plantations. The structure itself is quite shady but these plants help us to make the area a little more highlighted.

You are in a very exposed area right at the top of the building, but you are still protected inside the space. Being on the crown, you would expect to have a clean, open area, instead you are surprised by this spectacular contrast.

The warehouses that existed in this space in the past also inspired us. These buildings were later abandoned, but the plant life managed to re-colonise itself and grow its way nonetheless to take over the building.

Where does the “modern” come into the landscape design?

ICN: Spaces should have a clear function, an expressive design and a role in terms of the micro and macroclimates. They should also be cognizant of future maintenance and be environmentally sustainable. For me, that is modern! Thinking about how the current situation and the needs of the client come together as a landscape package that is expressive, contemporary and sustainable is the approach modern design should take.

Martin Modern is for the people. It’s not just modern in terms of design, but also modern in terms of lifestyle. We have reached an era where everything is rapidly digitised. Does anyone still go out into the garden to read a book? Maybe. In this development, the space will entice or invite you to interact with it. Modern design is about creating that experience between the future and now.

How did your philosophy as landscape architects fit in with GuocoLand’s vision for Martin Modern?

ICN: Landscape Architecture is about taking the natural elements and reorganising them to create a new environment for our contemporary urban lives. That’s the philosophy we, at ICN, work with. Since GuocoLand aims to create an environment that is social, comfortable and human, the landscape design proposed by us, helps to enhance this vision.

To put it simply, landscapes are created for the people by people. In the case of Martin Modern, GuocoLand intends to build a comfortable space for the residents, so we have to create something that would entice the residents to come out of their homes and experience the landscape. A successful landscape is not just aesthetically sound, but also encourages social mingling.

How does the landscape design define the identity of Martin Modern?

ICN: Identity comes from the creation of a space, and all the elements, from the buildings to the trees contribute to its definition. Landscape, particularly, adds character to the setting, with its stylistic composition and amalgamation of soft and hard materials. In Martin Modern, the landscape presence becomes the strongest element, thereby creating a distinctive identity for the development.

What were some of the inspirations for the landscape design of this development?

ICN: The botanic heritage of this region was one of our main inspirations for the design. Some of the more tangible inspirations were the irregular terrain of the site, and the scattered remaining old trees in the district.

Every element used in the landscape design, from the botanical material to the layout, has been inspired by the space itself. In fact, we wanted to create a link to our botanic heritage within this development located in the middle of the city. In terms of the botanic materials, some inspiration was also derived from other natural and man-made green spaces in Singapore, from the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve to the Botanic Gardens. We wanted to use the native species, plants and trees that would be familiar to most to populate the space, and also to create an experience as natural as possible so as to instil in people an appreciation of our native landscape.

This is not a conventional space considering its irregular terrain and surroundings. What were some of the initial strategies you used to tackle this challenge?

ICN: When we first discussed the project, we looked at the topography, particularly in the slopes, because that usually gives us the opportunity to create drama in the landscape. It was certain to us, right at the beginning that the change in levels is going to be a great

challenge and yet a creative advantage for the site.

Creating a multi-level tiered landscape gave a second dimension to the existing single- tiered space.

What are the experiential qualities you want to convey through this design?

ICN: The gardens are designed in such a way that they can be accessed at all times of the day, and at each time the environment will be something completely different both in terms of its visual aesthetics as well as sensorial experiences. The framework of the design is based on different shades and textures of green. The plants in bloom are only incorporated to enhance the environment further and to satisfy the need for fragrances and visual appeal.

The landscape has also been planned to create a trail of completely separate yet complementary experiences. There are 15 garden types with over 200 species of plants and trees within the landscape of Martin Modern. When you journey through the entire landscape, you will be able to feel the difference and transitions between the different gardens.

How did you manage to harmonise with Yuen Hong’s design for the development?

ICN: In order to make the best use of the space and maintain a consistent design language, it is important for the architects to collaborate very closely. In the case of Martin Modern, we definitely took cues from some of Yuen Hong’s ideas and inspirations. For instance the architectural materiality that he intended recalled heritage stone and tiles, which we thought would be something very interesting to work with in creating rich earthy tones in the landscape. Essentially, it is about working out a happy combination of all the elements involved whether in the architecture or in the landscape.

It is all about collaboration. We believe that in order to create a complementary landscape, the architecture and the ideas of the architect need to be understood thoroughly. The landscape should never overpower the architecture, but rather, enhance its visual appeal.
