Trend Alert: A Grand ArrivalTuesday July 3rd, 2018
In our quest to deliver exceptional living experiences for our residents, we must consistently anticipate and respond to the latest trends in interior, landscape and architectural design. One movement of interior design that we consider a timeless innovation, is the creation of ‘a grand arrival’, which transforms lobbies from transient spaces into areas that radiate a sense of luxury, intimacy and community.
In the words of our Chairman, Elias Jreissati: “The secret to providing continuous design inspiration is to create spaces that are both of their time and intrinsically timeless.”
Placing additional emphasis on the “arrival experience” or “coming home experience” for residents of a development is becoming more of a focus for leading developers and architects. Buildings that include 5-star resort-style elements in terms of quality, as well as provide comforting and welcoming elements of a home, will be more successful in maintaining long-term appeal for both current and future occupants.
We are confident that 2018 will see the creation of dynamic spaces with warm and inviting features in place of the traditional, pragmatic entry. These open, functional ‘living-space’ lobbies are the social epicentre of apartment complexes and are fast becoming the feature that defines a modern development and how it unites with its residents and the wider locale.
Each of our residences is built to make an enduring impression on our landscape – to be equally enjoyed and admired. We only include features that we consider forward-thinking so they will stay relevant for decades to come. We believe this stylistic movement will stand the test of time. For this reason, many of our current projects feature large, purposeful and timeless entrances that are designed to deliver an enhanced sense of comfort and quality, including St James Park, Chevron One and Vanguard.
