Inspired by Singapore’s vision as a “garden city,” a leading Hong-Kong based property firm has gone ahead to develop the first “Ultra-Luxury Residences” with sustainable development features. Called EDEN by Swire Properties, this property sits on prime land and is close to Shangri-la Hotel Singapore.
Located at 2 Draycott Park in the esteemed District 10, the property is stone’s throw away to Orchard Road’s famous shopping enclave. EDEN features 20 single-floor apartments in total, each unit with an area of over 3000 square feet comprising of four en-suite bedrooms.
Designed by the renowned designer Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studio, it is his first residential project in Asia!
We wanted to create something distinct for Singapore to contrast a skyline filled with angular steel and glass towers. Our design recreates the verdant garden access once ubiquitous in the city’s homes, extending the landscape of Singapore from ground level through the building via hanging gardens. This is truly a home in a garden, where residents can enjoy an unparalleled lifestyle.
EDEN offers an opulent view with archetypal hanging balconies, where homeowners can enjoy 270-degree views and complete privacy. Natural ventilation and cantilevered balconies provide shade with windows opened on three sides to allow natural cross ventilation, reducing the energy consumption and need for airconditioning. The chosen building material for the façade is concrete as it reduces the amount of warm air aiding natural cooling.
