Our newest project, lyf one-north Singapore, offers a series of public to semi-public social spaces.
.
On the ground level the amphitheatre and multi-functional driveway plaza can be transformed into a public events and activity space.
.
These spaces can be accessed by anyone passing by the development and can serve the broader community.
.
The residents have access to a social kitchen as well as indoor and outdoor dining areas where they can meet up and share meals.
.
The swimming pool is a central meeting point where residents can exercise and socialise.
.
Green communal terraces at different levels give residents easy access to fresh air and greenery, and the open rooftop lawn area can be used for events, gatherings or just relaxing at the end of a long day.
.
The richness and diversity of the community spaces encourages residents to socialise, spend time outside and build connections.

#newproject: Earlier this week our newest project, lyf one-north Singapore, officially opened its doors.
.
It is a new co-living development that emphasises community and is located at the intersection of the commercial, educational, and residential clusters of the one-north district of Singapore.
.
The building uses a palette of precast concrete and landscaping which extends the existing greenery up into the development. The precast concrete façade uses variations in textures and geometry with its integrated sun-shading fins and hoods to express the playful and lighthearted character of the lyf concept.
.
This playful character is further underlined by large-scale colourful and dynamic murals, both indoors and outdoors. Terraced green planters along the external stairs bookend the building with a cascade of greenery (once mature).

#newproject: We’re happy to announce that our newest project, lyf one-north Singapore, officially opened its doors this week. 
.
The current, vibrant, and lively co-living development in Singapore's one-north neighbourhood caters to young people that work at the nearby creative and technology companies.
.
It is more than just an apartment building that serves its own residents because it was consciously designed as a community hub for the neighbourhood.
.
It offers unique public and communal spaces, like the pictured amphitheatre, for comfortable living, socialising and recreation - for the residents and the one-north community.

Today the @expo2020singapore Pavilion welcomes visitors for the last time before the Expo ends.
.
The Singapore Pavilion is designed as an example of how the built environment can co-exist with nature and create a biophilic, comfortable environment for people, plants and animals.
.
It houses 2650sqm of greenery on a 1550sqm site - which adds up to a green plot ratio of 170%.
.
The pavilion generated its own power from the solar canopy that sheltered the structure and plants, keeping everyone cool and comfortable while harnessing the energy of the sun.
.
This project is a prototype that can be scaled up and adjusted to suit different climates and contexts.

If you’re in Dubai for the last week of @expo2020dubai, come by the @expo2020singapore Pavilion in the Sustainability District.
.
The Pavilion brings an oasis of lush trees, verdant shrubs and vibrant orchids to the desert.
.
Sheltered by a solar canopy, it operates entirely on solar energy and uses passive strategies like sun-shading, natural cross-ventilation and planting to create a comfortable and cool climate.
