Located on a 2,001sqm island site, the 19-storey apartment complex features a range of superstar amenity as well as top-notch architecture by award-winning design firm Hayball.
Drawing inspiration from naturally eroded landscape forms, the glass facade of OASIS Residences is sculpted to reveal beautiful aspects as viewed from spacious balconies. The unique design of the building ensures 360-degree views, from the city skyline to the bay, and capitalises opportunities for natural light to suffuse living areas.
“It was important for us to capture the striking views of a city we love so much,” says Holder East Chief Operating Officer, CJ Wu. “This city is a place of opportunity and inspiration, and we wanted the residents of OASIS Residences to be able to see that, every day.”
A blend of modern architecture and superior interior design, each apartment boasts elegant fixtures and finishes. Kitchens feature timber cabinetry with marble island bench tops and gunmetal tapware that is seen throughout bathroom spaces as well, complementing the freestanding bath and the curved backlit mirrors and wall-mounted illuminated make-up mirrors of the penthouse apartments.
