Alison Pickett, the art consultant, worked closely with ARK to curate unique art pieces from various artists that articulates the theme of the development so that the art and culture became part of overall lifestyle experience.

Public Space
Although the various functions of the clubhouse are linked by often long corridors, our design these circulations with a variety of unique experiences. Sometimes, the walls would undulate sculpturally to create a frozen movement Sometimes, the spaces would breakout into gallery spaces, open co-work spaces, individual workspaces or intimate lounge spaces. There is never a boring moment.

Banquet Room
This is the formal banquet/party room within the clubhouse
while the other being the casual party room. The rooms are planned with a lounge cum pre function space with a dining room with a glass show kitchen in between. The pre function space leading to the dining space passes through a feature wall with a series of candle like niches. This formal space uses darker tones of walnut, bronze with a touch of turquoise that is reminiscent of the colour of the sea. The kitchen offers an opportunity for the guest or celebrity chefs to display their culinary skills amongst friends.
