daniel libeskind: reflections keppel bay, singapore


‘reflections’ keppel bay by daniel libeskind

prominently situated at the entrance to singapore’s historic keppel harbor, ‘reflections’
at keppel bay by daniel libeskind sits on approximately 84,000 sq metres of land with
an extensive shoreline of 750 metres. set in lush and expansive grounds, the waterfront
development features six high-rise towers, some linked by skybridges, and spacious
low-rise villas.

the sleek curving forms of alternating heights create graceful openings and gaps between
the structures. the spaces between the buildings allow for views to the horizon beyond.
the resulting composition is an interplay of changing planes and reflections.

every detail and aspect of design optimizes interaction with the sea and the commanding
panoramic views of its scenic surrounds including mount faber, keppel club golf course,
labrador park, sentosa and its upcoming integrated resort and the city skyline.

the project includes 1,129 residential units and is expected to be completed in 2011.
