Seven 50-storey blocks comprising of 1848 units, occupy only 2.5 Ha of land. It is home to 8000 residents, thrice the density of a normal housing estate precinct. This superdensity project is an important demonstration of the live-ability of high-rise high-density housing. Sky gardens reclaim land in the air by weaving the blocks with a vertical system of gardens on the 26th and 50th storey. The sky bridges allow for more efficient sharing of services like water tanks and the fašade maintenance unit. The park on the ground is built on an architectural surface that is a topological manipulation to conceal the three levels of car park and building services in a new architectural hill. This raised new ground mediates between the private and public realm. The towers are 90% prefabricated. The facade is composed with 10 modules creating a highly differentiated facade using an undifferentiated construction system.
