The Crest is a work of innovation and art that integrates nature with architecture flawlessly. Discover the design philosophy and concept of The Crest, and learn why it’s simply like no other.
Inspired by Nature, Crafted like the Tree.
The architecture of The Crest is inspired by the organic way in which trees provide shade and life.
The process of evaporation through the leaves of trees cools the environment. Leaves provide much needed shade in urban environments, and regulate the forces of wind. Taking its inspiration from trees, The Crest is designed to work harmoniously with the elements of light and wind, so that residents enjoy a mild and soothing living environment, all year long.
Fractal Floor Plates
At The Crest, the floor plates are fractal rather than a simple rectilinear box. This unique structure captures natural resources such as light and wind from multiple directions, bringing about a greater flow of energy within the building.
The fractal structure also creates an open-living environment with expansive and magnificent views from multiple angles.
A central core is a feature that allows quick and efficient access to each residence, while at the same time increasing the rentable ratio with smaller common corridors.
Nature within and without
Enter The Crest and be welcomed with an incredible waterscape that’s framed by more than 30 varieties of greenery. But, the oasis doesn’t end at the door. Sky and communal planters form part of the building façades so that the lush landscape extends from the ground to the air. With smartly layered foliage, structure and nature merge into one, providing you a cool and calm environment throughout.
The Mastermind- Toyo Ito
The Crest is a design masterpiece of Toyo Ito, a Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate 2013 and a recipient of the Royal Gold Medal in 2006, one of architecture’s most prestigious prizes from the Royal Institute of British Architects.
As a highly influential architect, Ito’s illustrious body of work is known to merge conceptual innovation with a keen sensitivity to the landscape. The Crest symbolizes a deep appreciation for timeless and elegant design, and the intimate relationship between architecture and nature.
