Located at the luxurious District 11 of Singapore at 2 Sinaran Drive, Soleil @ Sinaran consist of 36-storey twin towers with sprawling grounds. Soleil is a unique lifestyle condominium targeting well-heeled trendy professionals and young couples in Singapore. Beside a prominent 50-metre lap pool, two spa pavilions and eight entertainment pavilions are covered with extensive greenroofs that shelter individual recreational spa pools with various sundecks. There are also themed lounges and expansive sky gardens, complete with gymnasiums on the 20th floor of each tower.
Soleil @ Sinaran has been awarded the BCA Green Mark Gold and recently, the FIABCI Prix d'Excellence (Silver), evidencing the designers' concerted effort to achieve sustainability in the built environment. Green roofs totaling about 1150 sq m, on the rooftops of the eight entertainment and two spa pavilions reflect this commitment to sustainability. At the same time, the green roofs give the condominium a resort-like ambiance, highly visible from the condominium?s twin towers and also from neighbouring apartments.
The green roofs return much of the green space at the condominium site before its construction and play an important role in mitigating urban heat island effect.Plants (Veronica elliptica) hanging over the edge of the roofs of the pavilions form fringes that substantially reduce glare and harsh sunrays into the pavilions. Additionally, the green roofs protect and prolong the waterproofing membrane on the rooftops of the pavilions, whilst contributing aesthetically to the project.
