The Avenir

Best Project of Premium or Business Class Residential Estate

About the project
studioMilou’s and ADDP Architects ‘The Avenir’ creates a residential complex which prioritizes strong visual connections with the surrounding streetscapes and the communities. Bringing studioMilou’s experience of large-scale public projects, the development goes beyond providing exclusive residences and engages with pedestrians through an emphasis on openness at the street level. A spectacular entrance of cathedral-like proportions, densely landscaped, emanates an atmosphere of accessibility and openness. For the residents, this long corridor leads directly to the apartment access points, also creating a very direct experience from the streetscape to the gardens and home. Located on a natural slope with level differences of nine metres, the design creates landscaped terraces on the lower levels, further greening this densely populated surrounding neighbourhood. Awarded Green Mark Gold project for Singapore, the design includes rooftop gardens and offers views over Singapore cityscape.
