Amber Skye, the 22-storey multi-residential development is on the east coast of Singapore, not far from the sea and the green recreational corridor that flanks the highway to Singapore Changi Airport. The close vicinity to the seashore provided the best of all possible sources of inspiration: the sea and its endless waves in motion. The idea is to create an urban resort which is the major objective of the design intent. Each unit is basically orthogonal, but the corners are all rounded, a curvilinear character which is fully expressed on the frontage of the building where the balconies form a wave pattern to pick up on the seaside location. The zig-zagged balconies amplify the dynamic shape of the building’s exterior and the wave design of the façade generates additional natural light and ventilation. Supporting the idea of a resort complex is the idea of a community rather than a collection of isolated unit. Amber is completed by a set of three penthouses, each with a sky terrace and large swimming pool, sheltered by a crown trellis that closes and defines the edge of the building. The sky terrace hosts an open-concept dining experience for tenants to make use for socialising. The combined effect of these amenities and the landscaping creates a relaxed retreat from the hectic Singapore city centre less than fifteen minutes drive away. Masterfully crafted to resemble the sea’s infinite waves, Amber Skye is stunning in a timeless sense and is conceived to be an experience rather than being just another building. With its unique fluid structure, it is an inspiring icon that stands out from the rest, a classic Italian architectural design that never goes out of style.
