High-rise apartments and low-rise villas 

Marking the entrance to the historic Keppel Harbour, Reflections at Keppel Bay is a new expression for high-rise living and low-rise villa apartment blocks within a tropical climate. A symphony of undulating towers is the focal point of renowned architect Daniel Libeskind's iconic proposal. These sleek curving forms of alternating heights create graceful openings and gaps between the structures. The spaces between the buildings allow for views to the horizon beyond. The resulting composition is a creative interplay of changing planes and reflections.

Reflections at Keppel Bay will feature six glass towers and 11 villa apartment blocks along a 750-m shoreline, all with commanding views of the waterfront, golf course, parks and Mount Faber. The towers are of 24-storey to 41-storey heights while the villa blocks range from six-storeys to eight-storeys.

The towers are crowned with lush sky gardens on sloping rooflines, and are linked by sky bridges, providing pockets of open spaces and platforms with near 360-degree views of the spectacular surrounds. Reflections at Keppel Bay will also showcase stunning water features such as a 100,000-square-feet reflecting pool, which brings the waters right to the doorsteps of the apartments.

Award-winning and of Sydney 2000 Olympics' fame – US-based landscape architect, Hargreaves Associates will also create a lush oasis with the expansive grounds in the residence. The development will look equally spectacular at night, with lighting designed by Lighting Planner Associates, the renowned Japanese lighting specialists engaged to light up the Singapore city skyline and Orchard Road.
