Milano Residences is one of several buildings Broadway Malyan was commissioned to design as part of the award-winning, mixed-use development at Century City, one of the largest real estate developments in Asia. The public spaces and interiors are designed by renowned luxury brand Versace Home.
The 53-storey tower will be a notable landmark. Boasting 340 one- to three-bedroom apartments as well as prime units including penthouses, town houses and Italian-inspired ‘loggia’ lofts that feature private plunge pools and sky gardens. Other amenities include a fitness centre, swimming pool, spa, garden with juice bar, library function room and business centre.
The scheme has been designed to embody the character of traditional Italian spaces by fostering ‘indoor-outdoor’ living through the use of loggias, piazzas and terraces. These are reinterpreted through a series of vertical sky courts and gardens that punctuate the tower.
Sustainability was a key driver in the design, with a passive design approach that employs narrow floor plates and high ceilings optimise daylight penetration and further opportunities for natural ventilation. The design also includes a green roof and an abundance of densely foliated vertical open spaces to help collect excess rainwater.
