The lower two spans are landscaped circulation routes, while the upper bridge contains an elevated swimming pool, which presents views across the city’s rapidly developing skyline. The sky bridges also allow breezes to flow through and daylight to penetrate deep into the structure. The stepped geometry allows every residence multiple orientations and a private outdoor space, resulting in a more intimate and delicate urban fabric.
Located twenty minutes north of Singapore’s bustling center, the development is representative of the high-density, high-rise housing that remains in great demand across many Asian cities. As with more orthodox examples of the typology, the project includes common amenities at ground level in the form of outdoor spaces and communal gardens. Above a sunken parking podium, the site is developed into a series of lush gardens, outdoor event rooms, swimming pools, and walking paths.
In order to maximise air movement in the region’s tropical climate, the structure is highly rationalised, affording cross-ventilation and multiple exposures to each unit. In addition, many apartments boast individual balconies, roof terraces and gardens.
While mitigating a sense of density and concentration and maximising contact with nature, the complex also results in a village-like clustering of residential units, echoing hillside developments and the integration of architecture and plant life into a singular experience.
