8 St Thomas
8 St Thomas takes inspiration from painter Mondrian, a design thread subtly woven through the building, from the asymmetrical geometric shapes on the glass facade to details like the Cubist GROHE Eurocube faucets. The development won the Best Condo Architectural Design (Singapore) Award 2018. The exterior spaces are multi-layered areas with waterfalls, pools and garden trails, and hanging terraces planted with lush greenery visible from the streets below. The structure of the design allows spectacular views for each of the 250 apartments, with bay windows used to increase the feeling of space and light.
Residents can also enjoy the lifestyle offered by on-site gyms, pools and even barbeque areas. The developer, Bukit Sembawang Estates Limited, used local firm DP Architects to ensure the project was closely connected to the city around it – the show apartments feature designs by local interior designers Janet McGlennon Interiors, 2nd Edition and Design Basis, all of which create a feeling of modern elegance for the residents. The design was also awarded the Green Mark Gold certification, thanks to features like energy-efficient lighting and lift systems, rainwater harvesting and electric car charging facilities.
