Imagine a high-rise with lush greenery on every floor—that’s the design Ingehoven Architects and A61 propose for Marina One, a series of residential towers in Singapore, Inhabitat reports.

Landscape firm Gustafson Porter will be in charge of turning the residential high-rises, a staple for every concrete jungle, into verdant towers that include green walls and waterfalls.

“If constructed, the lush atrium would become the largest green urban sanctuary in the quickly developing central business district of Singapore,” the article says.

The aptly named project, Green Heart, was designed to act as an escape of tranquility for Marina Bay’s residents, and will generate natural fresh air with the presence of many cleansing plants. The project is proposed to be adjacent from Gardens by the Bay.
