Sky Habitat Residential Development
High density buildings in land-scarce cities often result in small living spaces, compromised amenities, and limited access to outdoor spaces and amenities. By contrast, the design of Sky Habitat aspires to include a range of amenities to serve the residents, from swimming pools and playgrounds, to gardens and communal spaces for family parties and events.
Three bridging sky gardens link the two stepping towers and create a series of interconnected streets, gardens, and terraces in the air, which provide a variety of spaces for common recreation and congregation. As a result, the overall massing is porous and open, allowing breezes to flow through and daylight to penetrate deep into the structure. The stepping geometry allows residences multiple orientations and large private terraces. At the ground plane, above a sunken parking podium, more than 70 percent of the site is developed into a series of additional gardens, which offer outdoor event areas, swimming pools, a tennis court, and walking paths.
