Estimated to be completed by 2024, the latest development project by Selangor Dredging Berhad MYRA, is a $150 million 12 story resident block in the greener suburbs of Singapore.
Designed by award-winning UK architects, Pitman Tozer Architects in collaboration with JGP Architecture, Myra will be an exclusive resident property tower with just 85 units. The property is strategically located in District 13 – Potong Pasir and sits along a 4.2km long planned heritage that cuts through various connected enclaves of landed home, heritage shop-houses and educational institution.
The architecture of Myra introduces a multi layered experience with its softly rounded façade and subtly coloured horizontal aluminium ‘ribbons’ that change in tone from champagne at the lower floors to muted gold at the topmost floor that serve more than just aesthetics but also functional purposes, shielding both the occupants and building from the sun and tropical rain. Visitors and residents will be greeted by an ‘oculus’ at the Grand Lobby, a circular skylight that exhibit dramatic play of lighting and shadows by night while it manifests the greenery that lay beneath by the day.
On the facility podium, Myra’s central feature revolves around its series of interconnected pools, anchored by a 25m lap pool which create multiple water edges opening up to different spaces complemented with an overflow feature designed as rivulets of water.
An active and family-oriented space cater the different needs of its residents with a children’s playground, hydrotherapy pool, hydro gym and outdoor gym which appear to float on top of the pool overlooking the amplified green landscape of layered canopy of trees, delicate ferns and shrubs showcasing multitude of shapes, colours and textures. Further down the serene setting, lies an outdoor dining area with an attached bar, an alfresco BBQ dining area, sunbath loungers and even a ‘Chill Deck’ to bring everyone together.
Myra also adopts contemporarily crafted units with excellent spatial planning to exude how luxury living should be. Homes are thoroughly designed with comfortable living spaces and abundant natural lighting and ventilation throughout the unit complemented with materials and finishes that blend harmoniously with its environment that inspires an inner sense of peace.
