A Home Within a Botanical Garden

Martin Modern is the only luxury condominium in prime District 9 with a garden setting, located within the highly coveted lifestyle enclave of Robertson Quay. Standing on a land size of 1.6 hectares (almost 13 Olympic-sized swimming pools), it comprises two 30-storey towers with a total of 450 units, all of which come with a view of the gardens, the city or the Singapore River.

The design architect for Martin Modern is Yip Yuen Hong of ip:li Architects, who specialises in designing luxury Good Class Bungalows and is a four-time winner of the acclaimed President’s Design Award. Yip worked on the design of Martin Modern with another award-winning architectural firm, ADDP Architects.

To maximise the views and natural lighting, typical units will have a 3.2m ceiling height. Units range from 764 sqft for a two-bedroom apartment to 1,798 sqft for a premium four-bedroom apartment. Each unit is designed with an efficient layout without long corridors, bay windows and home shelters. Click here to take a virtual tour and floor plans.

To give the development a sense of timelessness, Yip incorporated elements of Robertson Quay’s heritage as a warehouse district and gave them a modern twist. This can be seen in the loft-like spaces of the apartments at Martin Modern and the burnished brass look of the facade that consists of corrugated, pre-cast concrete panels.

The vision of a home in a garden was brought to life by award-winning landscape architect ICN Design International. The project comprises two 30-storey towers with a footprint of just 20% of the 171,535 sqft site. This frees up the remaining land for greenery – there are 15 gardens and lawns and well over 200 species of tropical trees and plants located at different levels of the grounds an buildings to create a multi-tiered landscape design.

In addition, there is forest trail, a maze, a bio pond, a bamboo grove and an aquatic garden between the two residential towers. Other facilities include a fitness court, tennis court, a dining and club lounge that overlooks a 50m lap pool, an expansive lawn with barbecue pits, and a dipping pool and jacuzzi. At the rooftop of each of the two towers is a “secret garden” with dining pavilions and viewing points. More information on Martin Modern’s site plan and facilities are available here.
