Resorts World Sentosa

MGA&D and DP Architects in Singapore partnered to produce a master plan for the award-winning 3.5 million-square-foot Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore. MGA&D was then the design architect for the resort exclusive of the theme parks and also the interior designer for a large number of the resort components. This integrated resort was conceived as an iconic tourist attraction for the growing Asian tourist market and the RWS casino is ranked among the top three most profitable elite gaming destinations. Resorts World is also a family destination with six hotels and a world-class spa, a maritime museum, extensive convention, banquet & event facilities, signature shopping and food service providing non-stop entertainment and two theme parks – a Universal Studios park and a Marine life and water park.

Master Plan

The Resorts World Sentosa master plan is sensitive to the existing tropical environment, integrating the architecture with nature and responding to the tropical climate. Sentosa Island is a green, tropical get away for leisure activity and relaxed living. The resort is designed as an integrated village of activities. The buildings are kept lower in scale than the nearby urban areas to create a more human scaled experience and to allow the green mountains beyond to rise above the resort. In every way – from the activities to the pedestrian experience – MGA&D considered how to make Resorts World a special place unique to Singapore.

Site Contextual Design

Sentosa Island was a major trading port at the southern end of the Malaysian Peninsula and along the protected Strait of Malacca. This water route has been an important route for nautical trade from the time of the Ancient Silk Route to the present day. The site design respects of the Island’s historic importance and provides view corridors back to mainland Singapore. The resort is tropical in character and sensitive to the climate, providing canopy covered eco-cooled pedestrian walkways.

Maritime Experiential Museum

The Maritime Experiential Museum is an iconic waterfront structure that draws its inspiration from sea-going vessels that brought trade through Singapore and thus embodies the stories contained in the exhibits and programs presented inside. Throughout the day, the shadows and dappled light cast by the ribbed frame enliven the interior exhibits. The interactive exhibits and the circular 300-seat Typhoon Theater, created by the international designer Ralph Appelbaum, provide a wide variety of experiences for visitors.
