Project Brief

Prominently situated at the entrance to Sin­gapore’s historic Keppel Harbor, Reflections at Keppel Bay is a two-million-square-foot residential development comprised of 6 high-rise towers ranging from 24 and 41 stories and 11 low-rise villa apart­ment blocks of 6–8 floors-- a total of 1,129 units.

The series of high-rise undulating towers is the focal point of this project. These sleek curving forms of alternating heights create graceful openings and gaps between the structures allowing all to have commanding views of the waterfront, Sentosa, the golf course and Mount Faber.

The design is composed of two distinct typologies of housing; the lower Villa blocks along the water front and the high-rise towers which over look them set just behind.  The artful composition of ever shifting building orientations, along with the differing building typologies, creates an airy, light-filled grouping of short and tall structures. These ever shifting forms create an experience where each level feels unique as it is not in alignment with either the floor above or below. No two alike residences are experienced next to one another or seen from the same perspective; the result of this design is a fundamental shift in living in a high-rise where individuality and difference is not sacrificed. 

The project was completed in December 2011 and is the recipient of Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority BCA Green Mark Gold Award and Universal Design Award (Silver). Additionally Reflections has achieved top scores for the internationally-acclaimed CONQUAS® (Construction Quality Assessment System) by the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore.
