Located at the junction of Saint Thomas Walk and River Valley Road, 8 Saint Thomas Residence is a high-end condominium located in the heart of Orchard Road, a prime area in Singapore.
As a local firm in Singapore, DP Architects is familiar with the tropical climate condition, the cultural context and lifestyle preferences within this region. The design process of 8 Saint Thomas was carefully thought out with those elements in mind – to create a state-of-the-art home for the people.
The two towers of 35 and 36 storeys consist of a total of 250 freehold apartment units. They are strategically located on both ends of the rectilinear shape land. This allows each apartment unit and penthouse with an unobstructed view of the Orchard Road and the Downtown cityscape. Conversely, the lush internal space enclosed between the twin blocks forms a cosy inner landscaping environment for the residence, away from the busy River Valley Road.
Inside each home, there is also a noteworthy feature of the bay window. Given that rooms are comparably getting smaller in the market, the use of bay windows give a sense of spaciousness and also breath-taking panoramic views of Singapore skylines. The green feature of the building extends itself to the landscape decking surrounding the pool area. The landscape is not only visible on ground level but extended vertically throughout the façade; you will be able to observe opulent flora from the street view itself. 8 Saint Thomas has successfully obtained the Gold Green Mark certification with considerations of using energy-efficient lift and lighting systems, low-e glass, rainwater harvesting, home automation system and an electric car charging facility.
Architecturally, the condominium attempts to redefine the ideals of modern urban living through the implementation of artful geometric lines on the façade. A dynamic sense of rhythm on the façade accentuate exquisite character and quality while adding a sleek and elegant building to the lush skyline of Orchard Road.
