The future of residential living in Singapore is high-rise living, it seems. But not your regular high-rise: architecturally stunning, incredibly livable, luxury high-rise, high-density living.
Thanks to a combination of local designers and the world’s greatest architects, Singapore is seeing some of the world’s most unique high-rise buildings erected on an increasingly regular basis.
Take Duo Towers, designed by internationally renowned German architect Ole Scheeren, for example. Or Marina Bay Sands, The Gateway Towers, The Interlace, and Gardens By The Bay – considered one of the world’s most sustainable and innovative builds.
Green Buildings and Innovation
Singapore has developed a reputation as a global leader in green buildings, architectural innovation and luxury living, and its latest luxury condominium development Coastline Residences epitomises all that.
Set right on the sea on Singapore’s highly desirable Amber Road lies Coastline Residences – Singapore’s latest and most exclusive sea-facing luxury development. Considered an architectural gem by those familiar with high-rise and luxury developments, Coastline Residence boasts lush, expansive sea views, proximity to nearby retail, dining and entertainment options, and stylish and luxurious living.
Coastline Residences’ undulating form blends perfectly into its natural surrounds, while not compromising on aesthetics in any way. The sleek, polished, harmonious design combined with infinity pools and lush foliage wherever the eye can see presents Coastline Residences as the ultimate new residential complex for Singaporeans and ex-pats.
Offering 1, 2, 3 and 5 bedroom apartments of up to 2,885sq foot in size, Coastline Residences draws direct inspiration from the nearby sea waves and surrounding poetic landscape. Inside, the apartments boast luxurious finishes and opulent marbling, with natural sunlight ensuring the outside world is brought inside. But the sense of living in a home surrounded by sea and lush canopies of foliage is perhaps what stands out the most to potential buyers.
“Cities like Singapore have been the international benchmark for green urban centres and sustainable architecture, targeting up to 200 per cent of site area covered by foliage,” Aria Property Group’s development manager Michael Hurley, who is hoping to emulate Singapore’s approach to green high-rise living in Brisbane, said. The group has lodged a development application to build what they claim will be “the greenest building in the world”, dubbed “The Urban Forest” in South Brisbane.
Coastline Residences’ doesn’t draw the line at lush and opulent, however. Within the residence’s swirling facade sits state-of-the-art facilities, with gyms, fitness centres, yoga laws, indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, pools and communal lounge areas, each designed to complement the building’s simple and elegant architecture. The connection to nature is further emphasised by the many outdoor oases spotted throughout the development, garden sanctuaries designed to be enjoyed by residents.
Moshe Safdie – a highly regarded Singapore-based architect – believes that to have a strong, sustainable future for high-rise living in Singapore it will require bringing the outdoors inside.
“Residential development in Singapore, in the future, will evolve to maximise the indoor-outdoor opportunities of the living environment, as well as the communal living facilities,” he said to Singapore Tatler. “There will be a greater emphasis on sustainable architecture, the inclusion of generous open spaces, gardens and plant life in the complexes. Essentially, residential development in Singapore will move away from the standard, extruded tower solution to much more three-dimensional complexes which can accomplish the above-stated objectives.”
According to a Google search, Singapore has just 5.639 million inhabitants which is not a lot however it’s one of the most densely populated areas in the world. With 7866 persons per square meter, it’s doesn’t make the top 50 most densely populated cities of the world. In saying this, residences are not spread out, most people live in high rise buildings. 78.6% live in HDB dwellings which are Government-run.
