The Verandah Residences stands out in black and white

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - When Oxley Holdings launched The Verandah Residences in Pasir Panjang in April last year, the freehold project was sold out within three months.
The project also clinched the Marketing Excellence Award, for Residential (Uncompleted), Central, at the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards 2019.
Apart from a good marketing strategy, Oxley attributes the project’s success to its architectural design and location.

“The product itself is something that is unique and iconic. Upon completion, The Verandah Residences will definitely change the streetscape of Pasir Panjang Road,” says Oxley.
Expected to be completed in 4Q2023, the development comprises 167 apartments and three strata houses. On average, the units were sold at $1,823 psf.
Designed by DP Architects, The Verandah Residences is inspired by the black-and-white colonial bungalows in the neighbouring cluster. What makes these colonial houses distinct were the large verandahs at the front and sides, broad overhanging sloping roofs, louvred windows and open windows, and open interior spaces that encourage natural air flow.

The Verendah Residences has adapted this design and given it a modern twist. The project has eaves and ledges inspired by the traditional houses to keep away direct sunlight and rain. Window walls were used to recreate the effect of keeping interiors naturally airy and cool. Louvred screens were designed to protect the interiors from the sun and rain, while still allowing natural airflow to cross-ventilate the interiors. The iconic verandahs of black-and-white bungalows were also incorporated into the project’s design through distinctive “Juliet balconies”.
