Sky-high Singapore restaurant blends sleek design, dramatic views

Sky on 57, the restaurant recently opened atop the Marina Bay Sands resort and casino in Singapore, promises dramatic views of the city and ocean along with a sleek setting by Princeton, New Jersey-based Joshua Zinder Architecture + Design and modern Asian cuisine from Chef Justin Quek.

The 300-seat, 13,000-sq-ft (1,208-sq-m) restaurant, bar and lounge feature an open layout and understated materials to highlight the space’s expansive views. Other design elements include uplit floating overhead panels, a large circular ceiling cutout and dramatic modern chandeliers. Flowing fins wrap the kitchen enclosure and open as needed to provide access to a 2,000-bottle wine collection. Glass panels embedded with photographic images separate private dining areas from other tables.

A 3,000-sq-ft (279-sq-m) outdoor terrace wraps around the restaurant and offers another seating area where guests can enjoy city and ocean views.
