The 20,325 sq ft development expected to receive Temporary Occupation Permit by October 2013.
Mainboard-listed property group Heeton Holdings is setting a new benchmark for the luxury Residential market with the unveiling of its latest freehold Residential development, iLiv@Grange.
The exquisite development, which harnesses some of the top global talents in the industry, was unveiled at a press conference, according to a Heeton report.
The 20,325 sq ft development comes into bloom on the former Grange Court site, nestled in the distinguished Grange Road neighbourhood, just mere minutes away from Orchard Road.
Drawing inspiration from the shape and form of the calla lily, the curvaceous facade of the 16-storey development looks set to stand out from the linear lines of other developments in the Grange Road vicinity upon its completion. The unique architecture is the creation of international lifestyle design firm Mercurio Design Lab (MDL), a spin-off from Italian architectural and project consortium, AMA Group, one of the largest in continental Europe.
Mr Massimo Mercurio, Managing Director of MDL, commented, “iLiv@Grange with its iconic sculptural silhouette embodies the perfect image of a magnificent flower that will stand proud among its nearby peers. The design is intentionally carved to represent the new line of buildings that MDL will bring to the world’s architectural scene. It is an exploration of new geometries and stylistic experimentation that ventures to find the expressions of this century’s concrete language.”
Within the development compound, the landscaping and apartment interiors are designed by yoo inspired by Starck, the brainchild of Philippe Starck and John Hitchcox, who are respectively, the world’s most celebrated designer and the world’s most visionary property entrepreneur.
iLiv@Grange is yoo’s inaugural project in Singapore. The luxurious facilities and lush landscaping that lie behind the 5.8-metre high traditional iconic red doors all bear the mark of yoo’s creative artistry – from the therapeutic pool, gymnasium, dry and wet lounges, to the sculpted park featuring a checkerboard, royal armchairs, and the private entertainment pavilion, where residents can wine and dine in the company of good friends and family.
Mr Danny Low, COO of Heeton, said, “iLiv@Grange was designed with ultimate living in mind, and no detail was spared to achieve this ambition. By combining the talents of MDL and yoo, we hope to create an architectural masterpiece that is also a celebration of haute couture living.”
Comprising 30 units of designer apartments and penthouses within a 16-storey block, each unit is served by private lifts and come in either the Classic or Nature theme. The latter offers white oak flooring and cabinetry, and fresh light-filled spaces, while the former features refined dark walnut flooring and stylish appeal. The apartments will also be fitted with top-of-the-range finishings from Poggenpohl kitchen and Gaggenau appliances, as well as sanitary ware and fittings from HansGrohe by Starck, Duravit by Starck, and Sesamo door handle by Starck. For this project, yoo inspired by Starck has designed a huge Windfall crystal chandelier and a customized Rink reception desk amongst the many pieces of exquisite furniture for the common areas.
Mr John Hitchcox, Chairman of yoo, said, “Singapore is one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities and we’re delighted to add this – our first ever Singapore development – to our design portfolio. We’re always looking to up the ante of interior design and create inspiring spaces that bring the home to life, and working with Heeton has provided us with the opportunity to do just that.”
iLiv@Grange’s 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments range from approximately 1,100 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft, while its two double-storey penthouses, which are each outfitted with a private roof terrace and pool, are about 3,300 sq ft and 3,500 sq ft in size.
“For residents of iLiv@Grange, designer living will not just be confined to their apartment. This development is designed such that its residents will feel right at home the moment they step behind the red doors.
“There are homely facilities on the ground floor, such as the lounge area, the entertainment pavilion and the park, which will be like their own living room, dining room and private garden respectively,” said Mr Low.
iLiv@Grange is expected to receive its Temporary Occupation Permit for the development by October 2013.
