While nature has inspired many man-made creations , the developers of Eco Sanctuary take that concept to new heights with the development of a luxurious condominium that attempts to emulate the ecology of its surroundings.
The muse for Eco Sanctuary’s landscape design is the rich biodiversity of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, while the architectural form of the three towers is a nod to the adjoining Chestnut Nature Reserve and the nearby Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.
Ecologically-themed gardens wrap around the residences, including the Papillon Path, Sunbird Walk, Dragonfly Walk and Lotus Creek. This nature corridor culminates at the Butterfly Gate, which links to the great outdoors. The landscape is designed to integrate with the adjacent park and leads to a cycling and jogging trail as well as the Central Catchment Reserve.
True to its green inspiration, the Eco Sanctuary aims to achieve the BCA Greenmark Platinum standard that will not only help you save on utility bills but also promote sustainability. Some of these features include lifts with a sleep mode, rainwater harvesting and drip irrigation with rain sensor and motion sensors.
The three towers comprise 483 apartments of one, two, three and four-bedroom units featuring high ceilings at 3.4 metres. The condominium will incorporate resort-style recreational facilities, including sky terraces, a sky bridge with a panoramic view, a gymnasium, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a clubhouse and alfresco decks. The sky terraces at each tower offer you gourmet dining rooms, cocktail bars and massage spas for private parties. Hammocks and cabanas are also available for those who just want to relax.
The clubhouse, meanwhile, is planned around a hexagonal sculptural pool on the inside. From the outside, the entire structure appears to float above the swimming pool.
