A true luxury apartment comes with a swimming pool

A true luxury apartment comes with a swimming pool

China

Weixin QQ - Designing Together

A villa with pool isn't that surprising - even a hotel might also have its own swimming pool. Most developments these days have typical apartment layouts, with the rare provision of a common swimming pool. 
 
Singapore-based SCDA's Soori High Line residences encapsulate its architecture and interiors sensibilities in a collection of 31 private residences, with 16 apartments having their own private pool. Principal and founder Soo Chan has completed many high-rise pools in Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and other parts of Asia - but a high-rise private swimming pool in Manhattan is a rare feat.

Architect Soo K. Chan, recipient of Singapore’s inaugural President’s Design Award, and his firm, SCDA Architects, have recently completed renovations on Singapore’s National Design Centre, a showcase of innovation and encouragement in the possibilities of design. Centrally located in the arts, cultural, learning and entertainment district in the Bras Basah-Bugis area, the National Design Centre will be a nexus for all things design, serving as a lecture hall, space for public exhibitions, and think tank for Singapore’s growing design culture. As Singapore’s primary hub for design, the National Design Centre serves to foster a strong design culture in Singapore and deepen the appreciation of good design through community engagement activities and design showcases.
