Eden by Swire Properties set to be completed Q4 2019
If you’ve been in and around the Draycott/Ardmore area, you’ve probably caught a glimpse of this unique structure. The near-complete Eden is Hong Kong-listed Swire Properties’ maiden residential development in Singapore. And they’ve left no stone unturned. Acclaimed British architectural firm Heatherwick Studios was enlisted to bring this project to life. Yes, the same designers behind Changi Airport’s upcoming Terminal 5 and The Hive at NTU.
Swire Properties’ Eden is no ordinary condo. The swanky one floor, one apartment project offers just 20 enormous units, spreading across a generous 3,000+ sqft with 4 ensuite bedrooms. Talk about roomy! The layout is arranged around a sprawling living room in the centre and promises the utmost privacy.
Of course, the development holds a swimming pool, children’s pool, gymnasium, BBQ pit, landscaped garden, sky garden and 41 parking lots. The entire project is set to be completed in Q4 2019. Watch this space for updates…
It sure stands out. Standing at 22-storeys in one of the most prestigious enclaves on the island is a facade like no other. It’s designed to blend in with Singapore’s iconic ‘City in a Garden’ philosophy. Eden’s distinctive shell-like balconies will in time overflow with torch ginger, elephant ears, heliconias, split-leaf philodendrons and tree ferns.
Safe to say that the structure (like its designers) has a biophilic soul. We hear Heatherwick Studios even created a unique 3D texture on the concrete by imprinting it with the island’s terrain using a topographical map. Yes, all the textured concrete walls you’ll see on the property will be uniquely Singaporean. Oh such details…
