Construction is complete on Reflections on Keppel Bay in Singapore, and Dezeen has a great set of photos of the newest additions Studio Daniel Libeskind’s portfolio. (The project is Libeskiund’s first residential project in Asia and the largest residential project for the firm to date.) The striking new residential complex totals two-million-square-feet, and includes six high-rise towers ranging from 24 and 41 stories.
The project also includes 11 low-rise villa apartment blocks of six to 8 floors for a total of 1,129 units.
The high rises feature rooftop gardens and are connected by elevated bridges.
Studio Daniel Libeskind explains the unique dwellings at the heart of the project: “No two alike residences are experienced next to one another or seen from the same perspective; the result of this design is a fundamental shift in living in a high-rise where individuality and difference is not sacrificed.”
The architect also explains that the project is a creative response of the need to create dense but livable residential environments in the crowded country of Singapore: “rather than equally distributing the density across the site with similar building types, the design is composed of two distinct typologies of housing; the lower Villa blocks along the water front and the high-rise towers which over look them set just behind.”
