THE NEW NOVENA
PRIME DISTRICT 11
Fyve Derbyshire is nestled in Novena, a city location in Singapore’s highly sought-after Prime District 11. The development is within walking distance to Novena MRT station and a short distance to Newton MRT interchange. It is surrounded by numerous retail and lifestyle choices, making it convenient for daily necessities. Novena itself is set for Transformation with the upcoming Health City Novena. The future North-South Corridor will enhance connectivity even more. There are also renowned schools in the vicinity.
An extremely central region in Singapore, Novena is bounded by Tanglin to the south, Bukit Timah to the west, Toa Payoh to the north and Kallang to the east. Because it is located within Prime District 11, most of the housing in Novena consists of condominiums and private homes, making it a very exclusive area. Some roads in Novena bear the names of English counties, such as Derbyshire Road, Essex Road, Suffolk Walk and Norfolk Road. Derbyshire, in the centre of England, is known for its rolling hills and uplands.
The design concept for this project originates from the idea of creating “a Sanctuary for the Senses” for every resident of this development. As a residential development, the idea of a “sanctuary” is derived from notions of an abode filled with safety and serenity. In addition, this sanctuary space is set amidst an environment of lush landscaping, creating mood of tranquility, in harmony with nature. At the same time, the development is designed to appeal to our human senses of sight, sound, smell, taste & touch. This is achieved in the following examples through our sensitive and thoughtful design for this development
SIGHT ~ visual impression of iconic architecture upon first sight towards the entrance, use of lighting, lush greenery & landscaping.
SOUND ~ water features with tranquil sounds & the rustling of greenery as the wind blows through.
SMELL ~ specially designed scented gardens with herbs, flowers & scented plants.
TASTE ~ specially designed seating lounge with gardens planted with herbs and other edible plants.
TOUCH ~ thoughtfully selected materials and fittings which appeal to the tactile nature of one’s touch.
The intention is for this development to become a welcome abode with purposefully crafted spaces that appeal to all our 5 senses. The 5 senses also shares similarity with this development’s address and house number (ie 5 Derbyshire Road). The architectural design of the building is designed as a single iconic residential tower set amidst lush landscape of greenery and water features that evokes a serene and tranquil environment, this development becomes a sanctuary of peacefulness and calm that welcomes home every resident.
