Analysis Once completed, Icon Residence would be as the name would suggest, an Icon of luxurious comfort. The emulation of Mediterranean waterfront resorts and coastal towns gives it a touch of uniqueness which defines modern day lifestyle. Based on the theme of "Luxury garden terraces in the sky" or "Floating bungalows", the serviced suites are meticulously housed in uneven blocks interspersed with landscapes and water features; and integrating elements of sun, sky and scenic greenery into a 3-dimensional lattice of terraces, gardens and living spaces.The above elements contribute to the seamless flow between units which dispels the distinction between indoors and outdoors, creating a sense of unity of nature and modern living. It is further achieved by the breaking up of blocks into smaller components and pavilions.
