A home of distinction that celebrates the most fervent passions of the discerning individuals; Singapore’s luxury high-rise apartment building, the Hamilton Scott boasts apartments that welcome its owners with their own car porch in the sky. Featuring unique ‘En Suite Sky Garages’ that impressively uses a biometrically-controlled elevator to deliver and park cars right beside homeowners’ lavish living spaces, this high-tech 30-storey building in the upscale Orchad Road area certainly offers an innovative solution the problem of big-city car parking, while allowing the owners to keep a close eye on their beloved and expensive cars. However, the very idea of parking the supercars right into the home space isn’t new as we have earlier seen that Ferrari fan parked his Ferrari F355 Spider inside the living room, Brazil’s richest man Eike Batista literally decorated the lounge of his Jardim Botanico mansion with his Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, and a self-proclaimed Porsche fanatic hung a 1950 Porsche Spyder 550 in his living room, besides the Dutch house which features a vintage Jaguar re-conditioned as a bookshelf.
The 56-unit building features a glass elevator shaft that lifts cars into condo units and parks then, behind a glass wall, right next to living room.
Besides the En Suite Sky Garages, the Hamilton Scott building offers other standard features including, a state-of-the-art gym, meeting rooms, Jacuzzis and an outdoor pool.
Notably, the units run from around $9 million to about $24 million.
However, it’s not only Singapore’s Hamilton Scott building which boasts unexpected and unique features, as Aquaria Grande project by the Wadhwa Group in the western Indian port city of Mumbai, will usher in a new level of modernization of apartment-building by introducing swimming pools on the balconies of high rise apartments.
