Amazing Residential Complex Singapore | By Safdie Architects

The Bishan Residential Development is the latest creation of the always surprising Moshe Safdie. The Bishan Central will consist of  approximately 500 apartments distributed in two towers of 38 floors spread on 12 thousand square meters. The two condominium buildings are linked by three walkways with gardens, pools and recreational space. This solution allows ventilation and natural light for the living spaces and greater interaction among residents. The apartments will go on sale in the first half of 2012, and the building will be completed in 2015. Watch the video. via Designboom
