Reflections at Keppel Bay by Libeskind

Standing at the entrance to historic Keppel Harbor, six undulating towers and 11 low-rise villa apart­ments offer sustainable living, views and privacy for residents in 1,129 apartments. The artful composition of the sleek curving towers affords the delight of visual complexity and provides enough spatial gaps and shifting orientations to multiply the views of the ocean, Sentosa Island, the golf course and Mount Faber.

Two distinct typologies of housing-along the waterfront the lower Villa blocks and, set just behind, the towers ranging from 24 to 41 floors to create an airy, light-filled grouping of short and tall towers, none of which has floors in exact alignment with either the floor above or below. In this design, Studio Daniel Libeskind was aiming for a fundamental shift in high-rise living whereby no two interiors share the same perspective and each resident experiences his or her own individuality and difference.

Reflections received the prestigious BCA Green Mark award in 2008. Sustainable highlights include: underground rainwater water collection, filtration and recycling for landscape irrigation; extensive landscaping and sky gardens to lower ambient temperature; double-glazed low emissivity glass to reduce heat transmission; energy efficient lighting and fixtures throughout; skylights to reduce the need for electric lighting in places like the basements; a natural water filtration system instead of chemicals for disinfecting the swimming pools; and providing solar panels and solar-powered aircraft warning lights.
