A rare new project in this mature prime district, Martin Modern combines thoughtful modern design and unrivalled accessibility with the privileges of cosmopolitan living at its doorstep, coddled within a lush and spacious botanical park. Martin Modern has devoted 80% of its land area to be artfully developed into a unique botanical garden and arboretum of native flora, forming an enchanting natural park that will embrace the two-tower development.
An orchestrated arrival, 15 curated gardens, spacious and functional unit layout, each with its private view, and a one-of-a-kind architectural design. Understated, elegant, 21st century luxury — this is Martin Modern, designed by the four-time President’s Design Award winning architect, Yip Yuen Hong.
On approaching Martin Modern, Yip’s signature tropical brutalist sensibilities will immediately arrest your attention and capture your imagination. It is part of GuocoLand’s deliberate strategy to create something distinctive, and Yip, known for his bold and visionary architectural statements, was the choice architect. He says of his own architecture, “It might surprise you at first glance, and because of that, it compels you to want to take a second look, … it is about creating a timeless design that you grow to love more and more the longer you stay.”
A four-time winner of the prestigious President’s Design Award, Yip Yuen Hong is a firm believer in functionality and simplicity and he seeks to create designs that are both timeless and explorative.
Born in Singapore, he obtained his graduate degree in architecture from the National University of Singapore. He has worked with the Housing and Development Board, and established firms like William Lim & Associates and Arkitek Tenggara II. With a vision that gives equal importance to the pursuit of creativity and innovation with productivity, he and his partner, Lee Ee Lin, founded ip:li Architects in 2002.
Since its establishment in 2002, ip:li Architects has been on a pursuit towards innovation and creativity that is aided by efficiency in approach. With over a decade of awards and accomplishments in its name, the firm continues to push the boundaries of architectural design and nurture each project throughout its life cycle.

Spearheading the vision for Martin Modern is Cheng Hsing Yao (Group Managing Director of GuocoLand Singapore) who is intent on creating a sanctuary of greenery, a physical and spiritual sanctum that gives respite from the busyness of city living. Cheng sees the need to champion an evolution — if not a revolution — in the design of the new condominium. Martin Modern, through its strong architectural presence, has a magic and tranquillity that coaxes you to relax and recharge. Martin Modern is defined as much by its softscape as it is by the hardscape. In fact, as one meanders through the series of gardens tiered to the terrain of the site, the journey culminates at the enchanting secret garden.
set aside for a unique botanic garden and an arboretum of native trees and vegetation.
