Designed by one of the most ingenious and celebrated architects in the world, Daniel Libeskind, this residential development showcases Singapore as the premier location for waterfront living. The 1200-unit development on 84,000 square meters of land yields a Gross Floor Area (GFA) of about 193,000 square meters. The Project is designed to include:
- 11 villa blocks (6-9 stories)
- Three 24-story tower blocks
- Three 41-story tower blocks
- 2-level basement parking garage
- Two iconic clubhouses
- Various ancillary structures
The towers are arranged in pairs of short and tall towers, each linked by three sky bridges. On top of each tower is a lush, landscaped garden terrace of suspended planters, supported on the tower by a crown of circular steel pipes.
- The double curvature of the towers with tapering sides poses extreme challenges to the structure during the design and construction phases. Careful consideration and analysis must be carried out to determine the expected lateral deflections during construction. In order to bring the building back to the designed location, adjustments must be made progressively. Other considerations include, but are not limited to, wind loading and human comfort.
- In general, reinforced concrete (RC) is used in this project. RC slab with band beams is used for the tower structure while RC flat slab supported on walls and column walls is used for the villa blocks.
- The 1st story landscaped deck, supporting a 1.5 meter deep layer of soil for planting, is an inverted RC waffle slab (upstand beams) to accommodate the planting requirements and reduce the basement depth. This landscaped deck also acts as the transfer deck for the villa blocks.
- Basement columns are spaced at regular grids to facilitate the parking garage plan and RC flat slab with drop panels system is used in the basement structure.
