SKY HABITAT

Located in the Bishan neighborhood of Singapore, Sky Habitat is a collaboration with Safdie Architects as part of a new residential tower building.  Given its location within a bustling metropolis and growing country, an important charge for the project is the creation of peace, calm, and reflection. 

 

The result is a multi-dimensional matrix of homes featuring private terraces, outdoor Sky Bridges, a rooftop pool and lounge, and ground-level contemporary gardens and swimming pools. The tower design provides for lush greenery, optimal orientation relative to the sun, naturally ventilated units, and generous views, all while complimenting the efficiency of the building structure.  The Sky Bridges linking the towers at intermediate levels and connect the multitude of spaces.  A key highlight of the overall design is the apex infinity pool and outdoor lounge area, which offers residents unparalleled views to the surrounding site and urban context beyond.  At the base of the towers sits Bishan Park. Seventy-five percent of the site’s area at ground level is given to contemporary gardens, private landscape rooms, swimming pools, and walking paths.  Collectively, these interventions provide residents a place to retreat from the larger city and take a moment to enjoy the lush and verdant nature of Singapore.
