Sky@Eleven is sited alongside Singapore’s MacRitchie reservoir and surrounding Central Catchment Nature Reserve, not far from the city’s downtown. The project’s 43-storey towers are arranged along a slight arc to provide views towards both of these regional focal points, and apartments are designed with narrow floor plans that permit the full penetration of wind and sunlight.
A community space in the shape of an elliptical pod becomes the formal focal point and programmatic centre of activity for the residential complex. This pod also serves as a connective node to link towers into pairs. The two pods are implemented alongside sky terraces at the midpoint of each elevation, and each hosts a gym and observation deck. A second sky terrace at the fifth storey hosts clubhouses with saunas and steam rooms. The development houses 273 apartments including eight penthouse units within two floor plan types: four-bedroom units occupy the first pair of blocks, arranged in plan as an ‘L-shape’ and the second pair of blocks utilise a rectangular plan for more a more compact layout. Balconies perform as sun-shading devices for units below.
