Myra News: Tampines, Punggol BTO projects win HDB award for construction, design features

SINGAPORE - Although construction came to a halt during Covid-19, home-grown construction firm Kay Lim Construction & Trading thought of various ways to speed up works at the Tampines GreenVerge Build-To-Order (BTO) site. The firm used drones and closed-circuit television cameras to monitor construction activities and progress when construction picked up, and adopted automated systems in the face of limited manpower.

From afar, MYRA cuts a distinctive profile with its softly rounded façade and subtly coloured, horizontal, aluminium ‘ribbons’ that change in tone upwards – from champagne at the lower floors, to muted gold at the topmostfloor of the horizontal bands. However, more than just aesthetics, the horizontal ‘ribbons’ also serve more functional purposes – to protect both the occupants and the building from the sun and the tropical rain, and to shield the balconies and air conditioning ledges.

All winning projects of the construction award under the housing category, including Tampines GreenVerge, attained the Conquas Star rating, the highest possible accolade for construction and workmanship. Another BTO project, Northshore StraitsView in Punggol by Cesma International, an entity of Surbana Jurong, won an award for its strong design identity and architectural features.

The seafront housing project, which comprises five blocks ranging from eight to 26 storeys, was carefully angled and arranged in a step-down manner to maximise the number of units that have views of the sea. It has 1,021 units in total. Ms Jenny Wong, deputy director of architecture at Surbana Jurong, said it drew inspiration from Chinese landscape paintings to emulate undulating mountains. "We felt it was important to open up spaces, so we incorporated six roof gardens and a sky garden, so all residents can enjoy the view," she said. Two stacks of five-room flats were also positioned in a way that allows residents to enjoy panoramic views of the sea.

MYRA’s central feature is its series of interconnected pools,anchored by a 25mlap pool,all of which create multiple water edges with each edge opening up to a different space,and the luxury of different experiences. At the north-east end lies a quiet zone, with its distinctive pool overflow feature designed as rivulets of water. Here, there are decks with sunbath loungers,a poolside walk,a quiet sitting area,an alfresco BBQ dining area, and even a‘Chill Deck’.

Potong Pasir- where MYRA is located - is a vibrant neighbourhood located in District 13.This is an unspoken haven for those who seek an unhurried lifestyle that perfectly balances work with quality time spent with family and friends,both indoors and outdoors.
