The Verandah Residences

Post by carrotcake » Sun Jun 23, 2019 9:56 am

The Verandah Residences, inspired by indigenous architecture, black and white bungalows were elevated with pillars and arches. Now, you can live that experience as the entire development replicates the elevated effect. Overlooking lush surroundings, be filled with a sense of grandeur the moment you come home.Colonial-style villas were built at the turn of the previous century to house colonial officials. Existing executive condo launches include Rivercove EC, Parc Life EC, Northwave EC, Hundred Palms Residences, Inz Residence and upcoming ones include Piermont Grand EC and Tampines EC. Piermont Grand details and Piermont Grand showflat will be available soon.

What made these black and white bungalows distinctive, were the presence of many tropical and local design elements. Large verandahs at the front and sides were its signature feature. Broad overhanging sloping roofs offered shade from the sun, while high ceilings, balconies, louvered windows and open interior spaces encouraged natural air flow and kept the house cool. These stately homes, with their distinctive black painted timber beams and white-washed walls, were also called “black and white bungalows”.

Now, these black and white bungalows are highly-coveted, due to their scarcity owing to urban redevelopment. They are also very much desired for their charm, for these bungalows evoke a nostalgic longing for the romance and elegance of a bygone era.
