The Promont

The Promont, as its name suggests, emerges from Singapore’s Cairnhill, a low hill which evolved from quiet streets of vernacular row-houses, into a mini-orchestra of towers each competing for foothold in the now swanky neighbourhood. This petite plot inspired a daring move: to become a niche development and seductive counterpoint amongst the Goliaths nearby. Its svelte footprint packs 15 luxurious one-unit per floor apartments complete with recreational splash and sweat (pool and gym) in 17 storeys. Like a sheer textile which clings snugly upon the setback boundary, the Promont’s plan is bold and efficient, using curved envelopes of intricate-filter and sparkle wed in a jeweller’s composition. The meaning of building-fabric is extolled to the hilt as the Promont transforms from comfortable enclosure to an outfit admirable from all around. This weave of fabric and gem glitters overtly where the apartments overlook the uptown district below, whereas the fire-escape is a lacy veil screening away the possibilities of liaisons and getaways which comply with the code for ventilation. Function and fashion fuse in the Promont, so much so that its conspicuity amongst the competition on Cairnhill might even be mistaken for the signature of an elite club spicing up the neighbourhood.
