Petit Jervois: A bold designer freehold development in District 10 for the intrepid homeowner
If you’re seeking a stylish home in a prime location, this five-storey development from SC Global’s luxury Petit Collectibles brand will thrill – and it’s ready for occupation.
As the world turns and trends shift, the dream home has taken many forms – and it doesn’t necessarily include white picket fences. It could be the location that is compelling – perhaps a neighbourhood where one has spent happy days as a child. For others, it’s aspirational; so that statement unit lovingly dreamed up by imaginative architects beckons more.
Petit Jervois, the first development from SC Global’s luxury Petit Collectibles brand, is the newest urban dwelling targeted at the modern homeowner who seeks a stylish home with well-integrated surrounds in a prime location.
Ensconced in the leafy enclave of the Bishopsgate and Chatsworth area, minutes from Orchard Road, the 55 freehold units are ready to move in and offer a calibrated space for you to express your definition of home.
LIMITED EDITION; UNLIMITED LIFESTYLE
Today’s home is more than just a place of rest. With hybrid work arrangements now the norm, a residential space needs to fulfil the functions of an office as well. Boasting open-plan designs that allow for transforming configurations, Petit Jervois aligns perfectly with this emerging ideal.
Architect Rene Tan from RT+Q Architects found inspiration in German-American Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s extraordinary Farnsworth House, which sees the living space wrapped around centralised facilities, giving residents the autonomy of customising their spaces.
At Petit Jervois, each unit has a centralised bathroom clad in a textured walnut finish that makes for an arresting visual pillar. Large-format stone-like walls, cement screed walls and unvarnished timber shelving units grant homeowners a timeless backdrop and licence for their individualistic expression. Understated flair comes through with the use of choice materials. Concrete, wood, metal and stone become ingredients to realise the uber-urban, bringing their luxurious tactility and character to walls and furnishings alike.
On the outside, a Bauhaus-inspired aesthetic governs the property, foremost with a series of slate aluminium fins articulated by black frames on the facade of two cube-like piazza blocks. The two blocks are wrought with base metals and boast intricate detailing, rendering an urban-industrial appearance that extends within the apartments. The first piazza links to a sweeping driveway while the other hides a lush and trim sanctuary with a 20m private pool, pavilion and fitness facilities.
THE EXTRA GREEN MILE
Green views have become panacea for the urbanite – a message highlighted by the restrictions during the pandemic.
Petit Jervois, a stone’s throw from the Singapore River, is a minute’s walk to an extensive park connector, offering one the opportunity for morning jogs or evening strolls, or even an invigorating cycling route to Marina Bay. Enjoy convenient explorations of other green pockets such as Fort Canning Park, the Southern Ridges, Dempsey Hill and the Singapore Botanic Gardens. This doorstep invitation is perfect for those seeking to balance stressful routines with green retreats and an active lifestyle.
Even when within the home, one can always enjoy nature’s embrace. Generous 1m-deep balconies with large sliding glass panels not only give every owner calming views of the verdant perimeters, but also introduce natural ventilation as an alternative to air-conditioning. This sustainable inclusion appears in other aspects of Petit Jervois – from the use of sustainable materials such as terrazzo flooring to harnessing energy-saving technologies for lighting and appliances, and green construction policies.
At Petit Jervois, nature and exclusivity come hand in hand with seamless connectivity and ready access to amenities to satisfy modern comfort and needs.
Besides the vibrant Orchard Road shopping belt that is mere minutes away by car, a host of charming options sits in this prime District 10 area. Visit in-demand dining enclaves like Dempsey and Tiong Bahru, soak in the spirited restaurant and bar scene along Robertson Quay, or simply delight in sumptuous local eats at the popular Redhill Food Centre.
Access to the rest of the island is a breeze, with multiple train lines at Great World MRT, Tiong Bahru MRT and Orchard Boulevard MRT.
