Words by Michelle Yee
If one were to make a list of the charms of living within the Orchard Road precinct, the list would undoubtedly be one of great length. The area is within walking distance to the Orchard Road shopping belt and is surrounded by a slew of entertainment and dining options, luxury hotels, embassies, and prestigious schools.
For those looking to put down roots in District 10, the award-winning development, 3 Orchard By-The-Park is an exclusive freehold development that you won’t want to miss. Designed by world-renowned Italian architect and furniture designer Antonio Citterio, who is famous for his design of the collection of Bulgari Hotels & Resorts in Bali, Beijing, Dubai, London, Milan, Shanghai and Beijing, this 77-unit luxury development is Citterio’s first project in Southeast Asia and is inspired by nature and the tropics.
Despite its location in the heart of the bustling city, Citterio envisioned for the development, which is flanked by lots of trees along Orchard Boulevard, to be a tranquil sanctuary, where residents can rest, recharge and rejuvenate. With that vision in mind, landscape designer ICN Design International was engaged to create a lush tropical garden within the 62,179 sq ft grounds, boasting an extensive species of flora and fauna.
Upon completion, the development was awarded the BCA Green Mark Gold Plus Award for its sustainable design, construction and conservation of mature trees on the site – a testament to Citterio’s vision of timeless, understated aesthetics.
Villas In The Sky
Comprising a good mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments and two five-bedroom penthouses, housed within three 25-storey towers (named Wood, Wilderness and Water), the apartments, featuring generous proportions and highly versatile layouts, have been designed to be “villas in the sky”. The homes are accessible through private lift lobbies, and each apartment leads straight out into a private garden terrace. Selected loft units also come with double-volume living space and garden or private pools.
Elegant Interiors Paired With Superior Finishings
With his expertise in furniture design, Citterio was largely involved in the selection of furnishing and fixtures for every unit. In fact, he custom-designed some of the finishes of the apartments and residents’ facilities to ensure a seamless design experience. Each unit features custom-built and designed kitchen cabinets and systems, bathroom fixtures and sanitary wares, shower glass panels and wardrobes, all conceptualised by Citterio, delivering a design holistically from external architectural to interior.
An Exclusive Address with Unmatched Connectivity
3 Orchard By-The-Park’s prime location in the heart of Orchard Road is a huge plus point, as the development is within close proximity to several good schools, modern conveniences and transportation networks. The upcoming Orchard Boulevard MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) is situated just adjacent to the development, while Orchard and Newton MRT stations are within walking distance, allowing residents to get to the other parts of the island without much fuss.
Entertainment and dining options are aplenty with trendy lifestyle destinations including Dempsey Hill and Holland Village located just a short 10-minute drive away. Nature lovers will be pleased to know that the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also just a short stroll away from the development.
That is not all, the Orchard Road area is set to undergo rejuvenation works in the near future – the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has announced plans to imbue it with more greenery and interactive street activities. These activities, ranging from retail and food and beverage pop-ups to arts and entertainment events are designed to enliven the spaces along the pedestrian mall in Orchard Road.
Families looking to enrol their young ones into school will have no lack of options with several prestigious educational institutions located close by including Anglo-Chinese School (Junior), Anglo-Chinese School (Primary), St Joseph Institution Junior and Singapore Chinese Girls’ School. There are also several intentional school that are easily accessible by bus or train, such as Tanglin Trust School, Chatsworth International School, United World College and German European School Singapore.
A Host Of Modern and Thoughtful Amenities
With 3 Orchard By-The-Park, Citterio wanted to create a design experience that harmonises all the elements, hence equal importance was placed on the spaces and facilities outside the apartments. Within the development, communal spaces connect seamlessly to timber-decked outdoor cabanas where the lush landscaped environment provides complete rejuvenation for the body and mind. Residents can also look forward to a bevy of recreational facilities like an infinity pool with a built-in Jacuzzi, a clubhouse, a comprehensive gym, alfresco dining areas, and verdant gardens.
The star here, however, is the residents’ library lounge, fully outfitted with furniture designed and custom-made by Citterio, where residents can read and unwind in utmost comfort. Here, residents will also be able to enjoy bespoke concierge services offered by YTL Hotels. In fact, residents may feel like they are in an exclusive club, with staff on hand to serve refreshments including cheese.
