A true luxury apartment comes with a swimming pool

A true luxury apartment comes with a swimming pool

China

January 17, 2017

Weixin QQ - Designing Together

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.
