Twin styles of interior design to complement homeowners’ lifestyle
Inspired by the dream of luxurious living amidst a happening urban forest, IJM Land’s Pantai Sentral Park is a singularly-focused development which combines the best aspects of urban and rural living to create Kuala Lumpur’s “One and Only Urban Forest City”. Nestled within 200 acres of prime forest reserve, the landmark development, which consists of seven residential as well as six commercial phases, is expected to be completed within 10 – 15 years’ time, with the 3.47 acres Secoya Residences ready for homeowners beginning 2019. With the realization that homebuyers have diverse needs and desires, Secoya Residences are typically styled in two distinct but inspiring interior design concepts, each with their own special appeal that is uniquely customizable. Combined with generous development sizes ranging from 1,050 – 1,670 sq. ft., each property within Pantai Sentral Park offers ample space for homeowners to truly make their homes a unique extension of their individual personalities. The twin-bedroom, 1,050-sq. ft. Secoya Type A has a ‘Young and Energetic’ concept, targeted towards mobile professionals within ages of 27 – 35 years who are young & energetic, with a passion for life and all its perks & privileges.
The above design concept incorporates many of the key lifestyle elements that are essential to the target audience, such as sports & exercise, fun-loving and enthusiastic; with harmonious simplicity and spaciousness. There is a touch of sporty chic in the overall interior design concept with emphasis on refinement. The living area adopts a dual-tone colour scheme to accentuate expansiveness, dynamism and vibrancy. The ceiling panelling incorporates a specific lighting arrangement that casts light and shadows on the walls and floors to create an illusion of outdoor sunlight and leafy shadows. The incorporation of wall space to display exercise and sports equipment is not only space-saving; it underpins the prominence of sports & exercise in the lives of residents. The wall-moulded panelling and avant-garde shelf for the TV is an artistic touch to accentuate contrast and sense of movement toward empty spaces. An open kitchen with a high counter-top also promotes a sense of tasteful chic and refined elegance.
The wall lighting and artistic décor are custom-made to complement the interior design concept. The master bedroom features a spotlight to cast a shadow of a yoga pose on the wall, enhancing the atmosphere of fitness and well-being. The second bedroom utilizes a similar concept of spotlights and shadows to create a mood of fun and exuberance, which is perfect for young children. The open wardrobe with its fashionable décor and display creates a comforting sense of space, which is undoubtedly what young professionals seek in asserting their personal style. Elderly homebuyers with larger families are more likely to be drawn to the “4+1” bedroom, 1,670 sq. ft. Secoya ‘Type C’ unit. Interior design here is a seamless union of vintage feel coupled with a modern treatment of contemporary fancy textures and artistic expressions.
The sense of nostalgia and sentimentality is particularly strong for those in early 40’s and beyond; so this ‘Modern-Retro’ theme is based upon their need to “connect” with their fondest memories of yesteryears. Aimed towards prospective homeowners in their fifties who are mostly retirees, this interior design concept is set to fulfil their unique needs and wants by offering a cozy and compact living space that is easy to maintain but exceptionally stylish too.
Furniture is loosely arranged, with television excluded from the living room, to give an added chic and contemporary appeal. Custom-made rug with floral motif typically accentuates the timeless retro mood, whilst the art décor is distinctly antique-looking with gramophone, ham radio set, and other vintage items on display. The dry kitchen and dining area and a high counter-top literally gives an illusion of space whilst encouraging a familial atmosphere. A special room is reserved for the TV, whereby blue LED lighting complements its exclusive wallpaper for a modern retro effect permeating entire home spaces.
The master bedroom is also uniquely retro, with an interlinked ring motif on the wall to symbolize marital harmony, and the vintage wood furniture helps to recapture and reminiscent the fond memories of years gone by. The open wardrobe with gold-framed structure projects an aura of exclusivity and spaciousness. Meanwhile, the retro concept extends to other bedrooms with open wardrobes, custom-made pendant lighting and wooden furniture. The modern-retro interior design concept and its execution within this unit is an ideal match for the target market of semi-retired professionals with a family.
“The rationale behind offering such distinct interior styles for Secoya Residences stems from a deep understanding of the diverse demands of homebuyers. We understand that a home must fulfil the needs and wants of its residents, and that can only happen when the space that surrounds them is finely tune to their lifestyle. Secoya Residences Type A and Type C respectively have been carefully designed after considering the fact that home buyers want to feel a connection with their homes right from the moment they set foot inside the door. Their home has be a reflection of their personality, and this is what we believe we have achieved with Secoya Residences.” – Ms. Grace Foo, Sales & Marketing Manager, Pantai Sentral Park (PSP).
Secoya Residences is Phase 2 of IJM Land’s Pantai Central Park Development, and comprises of 243 units of residential condominiums with built-ups ranging from 1,050 to 1,670 sq. ft. for its two-to-four bedroom units, with prices starting from RM850,000. Every unit is oriented towards the North with city views, and the South with forest and pool views to curb excessive heat gains. The 41-storey development is set to break away from traditional point blocks and the deep-unit notion of high-rise living. Secoya Residences will instead adopt a non-conventional housing model alongside wide-fronting living spaces combined with shallow floor-plates which allow for natural lighting and ventilation. Strategically designed bedrooms with wide-window panes take advantage of the majestic view of the generous green realms and vertical gardens below, framed by lush forest in the nearby vicinity of Bukit Kerinchi.
The visionary township of Pantai Sentral Park sits on a sprawling 58-acre parcel of land with a total gross development value of RM2.5 billion. Surrounded by a lush 200-acre forest reserve, homeowners will have direct access to a number of gardens, parks, hiking trails, leisure and flora educational parks, natural streams and creeks, among others. Pantai Sentral Park is also strategically connected to Kuala Lumpur to the north east; Bangsar and Damansara to the north; Petaling Jaya, Subang and Sunway to the west; as well as Cheras, OUG and Sungai Besi to the south-east.
