Developed on six hectares of prime waterfront land at Marina Bay, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay is Singapore’s premier performing arts center. It is an addition to the country’s vibrant cultural district which includes the National Gallery of Singapore, Victoria Theatre & Concert Hall and Marina Bay Sands. Other than hosting performing arts, Esplanade also has exhibition spaces and retail outlets. 

Designed by DP Architects and Michael Wilford & Partners, visitors will not miss two eye-catching spiky dome-shaped exteriors upon arrival. These twin-domes are lightweight, curve-shaped frames that were fitted with over 7000 triangular glasses and sunshades.

This design allows natural light flowing into the building throughout the day, giving it a dramatic look from the shadow and textures of the building’s materials.


The Lysaght Solution

Lysaght Singapore was able to offer its LOCKED SEAM® profile in the form of CLEAN COLORBOND® ULTRA steel to meet the Esplanade’s technically demanding structure. This is a testament to our ability in meeting all kinds of design expectations by developing high-quality, cost-effective products.




A high quality, lightweight but robust standing seam roof profile, the LOCKED SEAM®is very suitable for a contemporary and challenging architecture like the Esplanade.

It is cost-effective and easily customised to pitched, curved or tapered designs. Aside from its design adaptability, the roofing profile is also completely water-tight as it is mechanically seamed. Importantly, it was able to illustrate Esplanade’s exterior beautifully, making it an iconic cultural landmark in Singapore.  



Produced with extreme coastal and industrial environment factors in mind, the CLEAN COLORBOND® ULTRA has a superb corrosion and dirt resistance.

This steel product is also durable and economic, making it one of the best steels in the industry for structures that demands long-lasting performance. Pairing this steel with Lysaght’s LOCKED SEAM® profile is the perfect choice in showcasing the beauty of Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
