8 Saint Thomas Residence is a high-end condominium located in the heart of Orchard Road – Singapore’s most famous vibrant shopping street. Standing at 153m-tall, the condominium comprises 250 freehold units with two blocks at 35 storeys and 36 storeys respectively. It is packed with a wide range of supporting facilities and convenient transportation.
This project uses a multi-layer design approach to merge its architecture and landscape – creating an open, comfortable and beautiful atmosphere. This development considers the well-being of the end-users. Thus, there are 5 sky terraces vertically stacked on one block with 6 on the other block. These terraces provide lush greenery with a beautiful lounge area for the residents’ enjoyment. The green deck on the ground floor uses a multi-layer green technique that increases the density of nature to benefit the overall environment. The green deck also acts as a barrier, thus creating a semi-public space for the pool area. The effect of this at the green deck blurs the scale of the facility building and merges it to the ground while hiding the facilities beneath the green deck.
8 Saint Thomas seeks to create a living environment that is luxurious, modern, stylish and sustainable. One of the distinctive features provided in each unit is the bay-window designed along each unit’s perimeter, allowing residents to enjoy the excellent panoramic view of the surrounding city centre. The articulation of bay window design also attempts to redefine the ideals of modern urban living through the implementation of artful geometric Mondrian pattern on the façade. A dynamic sense of rhythm on the facade accentuates the exquisite character and quality of a home while adding a sleek and elegant building to the lush skyline of Orchard Road.
