Michael Graves, one of the New York Five and a household name after his stint designing for Target, has just completed his highly anticipated 121-acre Resorts World Sentosa, eco-resort on an island off the coast of Singapore. The multi-million square foot complex features six hotels, a casino, a convention center, a waterfront auditorium, a spa, a marina, an animal park, retail and restaurants. Sentosa, seen over at The Architect’s Newspaper, features a number of sustainable features that make the mega resort as energy efficient as it is enjoyable.
The suites at the Beach Villa Ocean Suites hotel, an upscale section of Resorts World Sentosa on Singapore’s Sentosa Island, can accommodate up to four guests in each two-story townhouse. The lower level overlooks the Open Ocean Habitat in the S.E.A. Aquarium (one of the world’s largest with 100,000 marine animals), while the upper level features an outdoor patio and a Jacuzzi. When guests (or personal butlers) raise a panel to reveal the aquarium, suite lights automatically dim to ensure prime viewing conditions.
