It is actually a mix of balconies, bay windows and planter boxes in a random order which gives the outlook. But then again, this on its own can be considered "architectural design".

it's a nice idea but i think it's a bit overdone.

and i'm not keen on the steel cross-braising frames supporting all these skygardens - look a bit too industrial to me...

then again, needa give some credits to the project for it being quite adventurous...

I have to agree with yeah, like the garden concept but architectutally 'messy' and boxy and reminisce of a commieblock! Yeah I understand it is an affordable condo but it doesn't have to look like a 'project' condo. project=low cost/cheap.

Its public housing, which is meant to be cheap. A unit costs approx S$300 000 I think. Though I still wished Zaha Hadid won the competition.

I'm not a big fan of the facade, but the concept is absolutly stunning. Sky Gardens are great. And I don't really mind it being boxy at all - it seems even more massive this way.

Great update! The setting of the project is great, with a view on the port.
