A trio of shining stars in Singapore’s first satellite town are connecting condo living in the suburbs with nature-inspired lifestyle experiences, with the development of two 40-storey towers and a 38-storey tower that make up Stirling Residences. Logan-Nanshan’s forest-themed Queenstown development, with 1,259 units set in a close to 230,000 sq ft plot, is an imaginative ambition. With 18 sky terraces and two roof gardens, Stirling Residences will take residents “between the sky above and the earth below”.
Upon completion in 2021, Stirling Residences will boast panoramic city, sea and green views with 80 facilities spread across three forest zones. Meanwhile, Logan-Nanshan are proud to be Best Private Condo Development winners at the 8th annual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) in October 2018, with the architectural and interior design talents of P&T Consultants and landscaping by Ecoplan Asia creating a winning combination.
It is the concept of integrating a condo development on high ground with a green-retreat design influence which extends to the outdoors that impressed the judging panel. “Stirling Residences is a contemporary and luxurious interpretation of tropical architecture with its elevated units, extensive landscaping and sky gardens. An impressive addition to the skyline with special attention given to minimise overlooking,” commented Kristin Thorsteins, one of this year’s judges and vice president of development, East and South Asia & Pacific at Club Med. “Stirling Residences stood out with its preservation of existing mature rain trees and its integration of landscaping with a children’s nursery.”
The verdant Tropical Forest of Stirling Residences promises pools, ponds, a tennis court, hammock lawn, pavilions, a meditation park, steam room, kids’ club, and more. The Fern Forest, a relaxing oasis, is offering a stargazing lawn, ponds, decks, playgrounds, fitness facilities, a stream, putting green, trekking hill, and more. The tranquil haven of the rainforest area is designed to be inviting with massage facilities, a cabana club, rainforest track, aqua foot reflexology, a teppanyaki grill pavilion, water wall feature, hillside greenery, canopy walk, and more.
Softscaping and landscaping that use the land’s existing contours are adopted by Logan-Nanshan to create a sense of fluidity between the architecture and the landscape that are carefully thought out at Stirling Residences, with design elements and furnishings harmonising with the purposeful ambiance of relaxed, resort-style living at home. Stirling Residences is a residential complex designed to act as a counterbalance to city life, with a concierge service too. These carefully crafted facilities are strategically placed within the site so that residents can, for example, look out to a grand 50-metre lap pool from the function room.
Similarly, interiors at Stirling Residences are designed to enhance this indoor-outdoor concept, with the average unit size being 861 sq ft with a choice of one- to four-bedrooms. Large open windows, glass sliding doors and spacious rooms all expand internal spaces and increase natural light. Meanwhile, marble walls and floors in some units and solid timber bedroom floors add to the contemporary, natural expression of Stirling Residences.
