Sustainable architecture

Siloso Beach Resort was constructed with sustainability in mind from the beginning. Numerous special construction techniques have gone into the construction to minimize impacts on the initial environment to great extents. Additionally a lot of consideration was put into maximizing the natural cooling and usage of natural light through good design. Last but not least a very significant amount of recycled items were used as construction materials.
