The development sits on a plot size measuring 1800sqm and is composed of 2 Blocks of prototype row houses totaling 10 units with Block A featuring 7 units and 3 units in Block B.

The design approach is to balance communal living and privacy for each unit. This is achieved by “pulling and pushing” the balconies and screening them with timber slats. The result is a pixilated zig-zag main façade with large glazed areas and generous terraces and overhangs to provide shade and at the same time serve as outdoor spaces.

Neutral colour palette is chosen for this scheme with lot of potted plants intended to be placed on the large terraces to animate the facades and offer pop of green.

Each unit is spread across Four (4) levels and accommodates 2 car garage, steward’s room, utility room, ante-room, powder room, living & dining area, kitchen & store, family lounge, 4 bedroom ensuite and a box room.
