designed by daniel libeskind, ‘corals’ is a sustainable mid-rise residential complex situated on singapore’s keppel bay. scheduled for completion in 2017, the 11-buliding scheme ranges in height from 4 to 12 storeys and comprises 366 waterfront homes. instead of building up along the shoreline, the plan is arranged in a V-formation, ensuring sweeping views of the bay from even the furthest set back units. the project is the second that studio libeskind has designed for keppel land international, after ‘reflections’ completed in 2011.

clad in a palette of white metal tile and glazed panels, the façades of each structure create an undulating rhythm accentuated by ribbons of glass balconies. the apartments vary in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms, with sizes ranging from 600 square feet to a penthouse of about 7,900 square feet. reflecting pools run the length of the site, not only enhancing its beauty, but also assisting in keeping the building cool in the region’s hot sun. in addition to the pools, other sustainable initiatives include a clubhouse with a green landscaped roof; a rainwater collection filtration and recycling system for the site; double-glazing throughout; and solar panels.
