A private residential condominium, Helios Residences is located in the heart of Orchard Road in Singapore. Behind a living green wall is the entrance to these luxury dwellings, which leads to a world graced with garden terraces and urban oases. Each garden terrace at the Helios Residence displays a different compositional structure, with water elements defining its unique spatial character. From the sky terrace, a cantilevered infinity pool extends out from the building, dramatically floating above lush, verdant courtyards. A majestic six-metre-tall water wall gives a glimpse of waters frolicking and rippling down to a reflective pool. On the way to the first-storey landscape, you will glimpse a rich variety of plants winding around trellises and facades, gracefully spreading its leaves. Imagine the residential towers rising behind a mysterious, six-storey veil of hanging plants. Near the driveway, an alluring and amorphous reflective pool, on which floats a structure, glimmers in the sun and adds a sense of tranquillity to the residential space. Thick green vines frame entrances, scaling up egg-white walls to surround a sky terrace, injecting a lush softness to the structure’s linear geometry.
