Designed by internationally acclaimed German architect Ole Scheeren, DUO has redefined Singapore’s skyline with its distinctive hexagonal plated towers. Located within the established arts, educational, heritage and cultural district of Bugis, the neighbourhood is home to more than 20 historical sites and national monuments, and plays host to an exciting variety of events such as the monthly Bugis Arts Flea Market, and the annual Singapore Night Festival.
DUO Twin Towers has been awarded the CTBUH’s 2021 Urban Habitat Award. This award acknowledges the design’s significant contribution to DUO’s urban context and affirms DUO’s socially and environmentally responsible approach to design.
In the process of designing DUO, Büro Ole Scheeren’s core vision of DUO was to “create a new sense of urban habitat in which humans, architecture and nature can coexist in productive and socially responsible ways”. His aim was for DUO to repair a broken piece of the city and celebrate public life as the central quality of a socially responsible urban environment. Since its completion in 2018, DUO has proven itself to be a dynamic place that enables social interaction while achieving high levels of sustainability goals.
