This project introduces 1,848 units of public housing on 2.5 hectares of land into the city center of Singapore. It re-defines urban high density living by weaving continuous Sky Gardens on the 26th and 50th stories through all seven of the tower blocks. The Sky Gardens provide diverse spaces that become an extension of the living environment for the residents and a new public park. The multiple access points to the sky gardens also mean that they are an ideal evacuation strategy providing multiple escape paths. Being connected, the seven tower blocks are able to share three sets of water tanks and pumps and one building maintenance unit. The spaces that would have been occupied by the water tanks and pumps are now liberated as communal spaces.
