With a length of 280m and a total floor area of 115,000 sq ft, the Atrium links the three hotel towers and provides the main gateway into the casino.

The mixed-use space includes retail outlets, restaurants, bar areas and hotel reception facilities. A major feature of the project is the Lion Garden Bridge, which dramatically cuts through the Atrium taking visitors into the heart of the Marina Bay Sands development. One of the more challenging projects the ISG Singapore team has delivered, it is also one of the most international: glass from the Czech Republic, stone from China and Italy, carpets from Thailand, and Douglas Fir from Germany. Many key areas were completed during a ten-day period.
