Waterway Terraces l & ll
Designer: Aedes and group8asia
Client: Housing Development Board
Inspired by Southeast Asia’s terracing rice paddy fields, this public housing development employs the visual language of stepped terraces. The new hexagonal and terracing typology of housing forms capitalise on views of the waterway and enhance connectivity. The multiple façade orientations and internal voids and openings promote natural ventilation, light penetration and passive shading features.
