SQ Rés is the second phase of the South Quarter development. Three new residential towers are linked to the original office towers via a sweeping Treetop Walkway. This Walkway loops around the two main towers, through the trees and over the residential gardens.
The towers are ‘draped’ in GRC louvres that feature the parang motif, inspired by the traditional Indonesian patterns found in Batik fabrics. The techniques, symbolism and culture surrounding Batik permeate the lives of Indonesians from beginning to end, and the craft intertwined with their cultural identity and spirituality.
The GRC louvres are not only functional but also an aesthetic link to Phase 1, both in colour and form. The hourglass silhouette and vertical flow of the residential tower louvres complement the organic shape and horizontal rhythm of the office tower louvres.
To differentiate it from its siblings, the third tower is clad in waved louvres that create diagonal ripples over the building, imitating the movement of fabric in the wind. The louvres taper at the top and bottom to give it the familiar concave profile seen in Phase 1.
Inspired by the lobes of the mangosteen, ‘The Botanics’ is a series of outdoor spaces designed for leisure and relaxation. Among the meditation and contemplation gardens are a putting green, BBQ grill, play area, and native flower collections. Nestled in the heart of it all is the pool, with plenty of shaded decking.
