Abstract: One of the key planning objectives of URA emphasized in the realization of the Concept Plan for New downtown, is to consolidate and link existing and potential commercial developments with a visual corridor along the Twin Towers with emphasis on activities generated on Marina Bay. The thrust of this thesis, thus, is to develop a design vehicle to investigate the issue of building on the waterfront. In particular, resolving the problems that come with it and the injection of activity in the area. The proposal is to develop food haven and business hotel establishment in the existing Overseas Union House site. The design concept is influenced by the challenge to mediate the two differing edges of city and nature, it must also respond to the requirements of being sandwitched between a new 33-storey NTUC center, a single storey dilapidated Clifford Pier and background of commercial blocks that forms an urban wall along Collyer Quay. The experience of traveling along the water's edge and the opportunity to capitalize on the superb views of the entire Bay also features heavily on the design response. The aim is to create an architecture that incorporates the enjoyment of the Bay in line with URA's vision of new downtown of the 21 st century.
