Here are some pictures of this Singapore office space. The office makes particular use of contrast between white and black, unsurprisingly due to the name, much like a barcode!

Leo Burnett is an well known advertising agency which has recently decided to redesign their office space Singapore. Their aim for this new Singapore office was to place the human purpose at the heart of the redesign. In order to achieve this aim the agency briefed the Ministry of Design, a design firm which is particularly well known in Singapore for their innovative style and fresh ideas.
The result is a minimalist and sleek office, one which reflects the creative nature of the business that Leo Burnett is involved in. The majority of the surfaces are white or some combination of grey, however black is used sparingly to provide stark contrast. In many ways these additions bring the office to life and give it a very elegant feel.

This environmental complex will be located near Singapore’s Marina Centre and Civic District. It was designed by Foster + Partners to be sustainable and will therefore incorporate various alternative energy sources and green design techniques. The Green Complex, as it has come to be known, will be fitted with solar cells and specially designed facades to catch wind and direct it downwards to allow natural cooling of the lower parts of the building. The project will feature extensive sky gardens in order to make the space more aesthetically green, but also to bring natural vegetation and ambient temperature moderation into the equation; the total size of the project will be nearly 15,000sq meters.

Marina Bay Sands is a multi use resort complex fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. The complex is supposedly the world’s most expensive standalone casino property, costing a staggering S$8 billion (Roughly 3.8 billion pounds). Apart from the casino, the resort also boasts a 2,560 room hotel, a 120,000 sqm convention centre, a 74,000 sqm retail arcade, and an Art & Science museum. The complex is topped by a 340m SkyPark, which has the capacity to accommodate 3,900 people. Lastly, there is the 150m infinity swimming pool, set on top of the world’s largest public cantilevered platform.
Marina Bay Sands has been designed by Boston-based internationally renowned architect Moshe Safdie. Safdie was invited by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation to develop a competitive design proposal for Marina Bay which would be presented to the Government of Singapore. According to Safdie “our challenge was to create a vital public place at the district-urban scale, in other words, to address the issue of mega scale and invent an urban landscape that would work at the human scale.”
Furthermore, Safdie selected five international artists to create eight monumental large-scale public art installations for Marina Bay Sands. The artists worked closely with Safdie to ensure that the site-specific commissions complement the architecture and energized the public spaces.
