Designed by award-winning UK architects, Pitman Tozer Architects* in collaboration with local firm JGP Architecture*, and landscape architects Aspex of Design*, MYRA introduces a multi-layered experience… that gives new meaning to exclusivity.
From afar, MYRA cuts a distinctive profile with its softly rounded façade and subtly coloured, horizontal, aluminium ‘ribbons’ that change in tone upwards – from champagne at the lower floors, to muted gold at the topmost floor of the horizontal bands. However, more than just aesthetics, the horizontal ‘ribbons’ also serve more functional purposes – to protect both the occupants and the building from the sun and the tropical rain, and to shield the balconies and air conditioning ledges.
On closer view, a layered canopy of trees envelopes its residents with a verdant, green tranquillity amidst a play of sunlight and shadows and the sound of trickling water.
Comprising only 85 residences with only 7 or 8 units per floor, MYRA is a rare find amidst the sea of sameness that surrounds us.
