This development in Singapore by Safdie Architects features three bridging sky gardens 

Completed in 2015 and designed by Safdie Architects, SkyHabitat is a 38-storey residential complex in Bishan, Singapore. The complex explores the balance of high-density living with humanistic concepts of community, landscape, gardens, and daylight. Breaking down the scale of typical singular tower residential development, the community-based solution of SkyHabitat is a three-dimensional matrix of homes with private terraces, balconies, and common gardens, bringing landscape into the air and maintaining porosity on the skyline through three bridging sky gardens.

Providing a variety of areas for common recreation and congregation, the sky bridges also allow breezes to flow through and daylight to penetrate deep into the structure. The stepping geometry allows every residence multiple orientations and a private outdoor space, resulting in a more humane and delicate urban fabric. 

The total building area is 61,000 sq m which incorporates 509 residential units spread over two 38-storey blocks. Within the complex there is a mix of two, three and four-bedroom and terrace units.

Recreational facilities within the complex, include a 50-m lap pool, leisure pools, a children’s pool, a play area, tennis court, barbeque pits, karaoke rooms, function room and a gymnasium.
