DUO (Chinese: 双景坊) is a contemporary twin-tower integrated mixed-use development (comprising residential accommodation, offices, a hotel and a retail gallery) located on a site bordered by Ophir Road, Rochor Road and Beach Road in Singapore.

Designed by architect Ole Scheeren[1] and scheduled for completion in 2017.

DUO will be directly connected to the Bugis MRT station served by the East West Line and Downtown Line via underground pedestrian linkways, providing easy access to the Central Area, Marina Bay and major shopping, dining and entertainment areas at Orchard Road and the Singapore River.

Site plans[edit]

As part of the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) Master Plan 2008,[2] the Bras Basah, Bugis, Ophir-Rochor area is planned as an arts, cultural, educational and entertainment hub. The Ophir-Rochor Corridor is identified as a ‘Growth Area’ that will feature a dynamic mixed-use cluster to complement the commercial facilities at Marina Bay and Raffles Place.[3]

Awards[edit]

DUO was recognised internationally with a Silver award in the “Best Futura Project” category at MIPIM Asia Awards 2012.[4]

Ole Scheeren was the lead architect on projects such as the CCTV Headquarters and Beijing Television Cultural Center in Beijing, and The Interlace in Singapore.
