Libeskind’s Reflections at Keppel Bay set for March opening

A waterfront complex designed by architect Daniel Libeskind is slated to open in March in Singapore.

Situated at the entrance of Keppel Harbor, Reflections at Keppel Bay is a 20-acre site that comprises 1,129 apartments divided among six high-rise towers and 11 low-rise villas of six to eight floors each.

In Libeskind’s design of the project, described as “characteristically complex”, no two floors are alike in shape and size, and the towers bend toward each other. Located along 2,460 feet of shoreline, the six towers are linked by sky bridges that not only connect the buildings, but also provide green park space. The sky bridges are sheltered by the bridges above them, creating an indoor-outdoor space complete with trees, benches and lawns.

Three of the towers are made up of 24 stories of apartments, each paired with the three 41 story towers that seem to twist toward each other. The high-rises are clad in anodized aluminum panels intermixed with large, glass windows.

Each tower is topped with open air gardens, shielded by latticed steel frames. The gardens cascade over each of the top levels of the towers, creating greenery capping off the spires. The grounds around the towers are planted with trees and vegetation, opening to a central swimming pool area.

The former industrial site, developed by Keppel Land International, is surrounded by Mount Faber, Labrador Park and Keppel Bay.

The development received the BCA Green Mark Gold Award from Singapore’s building and construction authority.
