Three sky bridges connect this residential complex, creating both privacy and a community
This 38-story residential complex in Singapore showcases the fusion of light, space, air and landscape architecture with three bridging sky gardens.
Safdie Architects, founded by award-winning architecture Moshe Safdie, is the mastermind behind the project titled Sky Habitat. The complex pushes the boundaries of traditional residential structures through exploring and creating community spaces and private areas within its blueprint of homes, private terraces, balconies and common gardens.

One of its standout features is the rooftop pool on the uppermost bridge, echoing the likes of a resort with its sun lounges and uninterrupted views of Bishan city.

The sky bridges are not only eye catching but are crucial to the design of the building and its synonymous relationship with the environment. The bridges allow a breeze and daylight to flow through and deep into the structure - a key element to combating Singapore's sticky climate.
