Martin Modern is an ultra modern residential development with sleek clean-cut architecture located in Singapore’s coveted District 9 within the prime residential area along Martin Place and River Valley Close. Its in close proximity to Orchard Road and Singapore’s Central Business District.
HOME WITHIN A BOTANIC GARDEN IN DISTRICT 9
More than 80 percent of the site will be turned into a lush botanic garden containing more than 200 species of plants and over 50 species of trees and palms. It will be a beautiful and iconic masterpiece project featuring GuocLand’s trademark luxurious living and lush Landscaping as seen on both Goodwood Residence and Leedon Residence respectively.
All units come with views of the gardens and the higher floors of the luxury condominium development is expected to enjoy vantage views of the city and Marina Bay.
Martin Modern is situated near the Great World MRT Station along the Thomson-East Coast Line and the Fort Canning station along the Downtown Line, both of which will be up and running by the time the project is completed and is expected to obtain its TOP in 2012.
In land-scarce Singapore, space in a prime location is the ultimate luxury. It is extremely rare to find a large lush site in prime District 9.
Surrounded by reputable education institutions like River Valley Primary School, Singapore Management University and various international schools. It is also well connected to other parts of Singapore by major arterial roads and the Central Expressway.
MILLENNIAL MODERN LIVING
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.”
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.
The luxurious secret garden at the rooftop is Cheng’s unconventional but strategic approach to inject uniqueness here. Responding to the global trend of creating customised amenities driven by locations for luxury condominiums residents, Martin Modern presents the best view and experience to be enjoyed by all the residents. This is a reader’s point of quietude but can easily be transformed for weekend parties as well. There are two lush dining areas on the rooftop for hosting private parties and entertaining guests under a gorgeous night sky surrounded by an opulence of shimmery silver greenery.
A NEW ENVIRONMENT FOR CONTEMPORARY URBAN LIVES
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.

Complete with contemporary artwork, modern designer furniture pieces, and even the smallest home accessories, the showflat authentically displays the minimalist touch and warm, intimate ambience that defines the Martin Modern lifestyle.
