studio daniel libeskind has recently completed ‘reflections at keppel bay’, a residential complex positioned along keppel harbor in singapore. the undulating forms contain a total of 1,129 units within 6 high-rise towers ranging from 24 to 41 storeys and 11 low-rise apartment blocks. the curving profiles of the carefully placed structures produce vistas towards the waterfront, sentosa, adjacent golf course and mount faber. each successive floor plate shifts, eliminating a sense of alignment and generating diverse perspectives from each level. individuality is encouraged, as even neighboring residences have a unique experience.

a garden is placed at the top of each tower, enclosed with an open structural frame which visually continues and gracefully terminates the form of each building. sky bridges interconnect the buildings at various elevations. the aluminum facade glistens within the sun, reflecting the evolving daylight conditions and ocean.

  • That has to be the dumbest project ever. No cohesion to the forms, no continuity of thought … except that it is all ridiculous. Only from the mind of Daniel Libeskind!

  • I Live in Toronto and everyday I walk past the abortion he did to the ROM. This concept reinforces his spineless approach to integrity. Kind of bends in the wind…..

  • This man needs to stop.
