A Journey Through Midtown Modern
Midtown Modern begins at the arrival lounge. The mood in this high-ceilinged lobby shifts as time passes, shaped by the light that emanates through the glass elevator shaft. Bright and cheery in the daytime, the halls turn quieter and more intimate as dusk approaches. At counterpoint, the plaza shops pulsate with rhythm and life throughout the day, maintaining a steady buzz in the atmosphere.
Enjoy absolute serenity and contemplate nature from the air-conditioned comfort of the purpose-built Tea House. Spend time with lovely company while looking out to a tranquil lily pond.
The expansive landscape on the Level 3 gardens includes, amongst a full suite of amenities, the impressive Grand Lawn. Here, begin your day with yoga, or watch your kids run free.
CLUB HOUSE & GYM
The Clubhouse comes with an enviable range of kitchen appliances so you can host lively and memorable parties, while the Gym is fitted with state-of-the-art fitness equipment.
After an energising game of tennis, adjourn conveniently to the Play Pavilion, which comes with an ultra large television screen for avid sports fans to watch matches together.
Through Midtown, we hope to demonstrate a new way of living, a new way of being, that puts wellbeing at the forefront during these complex times.

Partner at Ortus Design - Chia Jui Siang
Midtown Modern… takes a bold approach towards inviting nature into the city… an expression of nature that is wilder, freer, and more authentic.
Gardens in the Woods
Midtown Modern’s landscape design centres around the concept of ‘Gardens in the Woods’, featuring ten landscape settings with distinctive textures and terrains. Adopting the metaphor of an upward exploration into the mountains, this retreat into nature takes one from the cavern grotto at the arrival deck to a lush plateau on the third storey, and finally to the mountain peak at the rooftops.
Amidst these verdant settings, a full suite of residential amenities transforms this green sanctuary into an idyllic playground for all. From garden to Grand Lawn, lap pool to pavilion, Midtown Modern promises to surprise, delight, rejuvenate and excite at every turn.

MIDTOWN MODERN - Q&A
1. What is the architectural concept for Midtown Modern?
With Midtown Modern, we wanted to explore how we might create an experience that invites people to live in the city, yet create a rejuvenating environment that feels cocooned from the city. That was our main challenge.
2. What kind of feelings do you hope to evoke with the Midtown Modern experience?
Because we’re designing homes for people to build their lives upon, what I hope to evoke in residents is a feeling of warmth and intimacy – as if they are coming home to the comfortable companionship of a close friend. We went with concrete and brown masonry to create this sense of cosiness, even though many might say that luxury is expressed with steel and glass. With Midtown Modern, we’re creating a different expression of luxury that is warmer and more comfortable, especially given that many will call it home.
3. How does Midtown Modern bear the ip:li signature?
As with all my other projects, Midtown Modern is driven by the fundamental goal of designing for people, first and foremost. This is no earth-shattering concept, though it certainly is a very important one. Architecture is a backdrop against which people’s lives unfold; a site on which they build their history. It must be user-centric and livable. As an architect, I’m always looking to design robust spaces that encourage people to fully embrace living in their own homes – rather than being reluctant to do so because it’s too immaculate or precious. Midtown Modern exemplifies this with its rugged aesthetic. To some, it may read as Brutalist, but for me it’s not so much about the look as it is about a tactility and toughness that I’m after.
5. Many of your designs embody a sense of timelessness. How did you apply this philosophy with Midtown Modern?
It’s not up to me to say whether the design will be timeless, but I do aspire towards it. The architecture of Midtown Modern is inspired by the brick buildings of Midtown districts in other cities such as New York and London. The materiality of brick is one that stands the test of time, and I hope that many years down the road, people will still look to Midtown Modern and find its qualities refreshing.
6. How does Midtown Modern borrow from the best aspects of Martin Modern?
Martin Modern’s lush greenery and poetic spaces distinguished it from other luxury residential developments, and created a modern expression of livable luxury. We sought something similar with the garden sanctuary that we’re crafting here at Midtown Modern.
7. What does living well mean to you?
To me, living well means surrounding yourself with the people and things that you love. You don’t have to live in a very big space – you can live with a very small footprint, as long as it contains interesting nooks and corners that you can enjoy. The great trap of modern life is the belief that more is better, but I believe that going back to basics is the greater wisdom.
