The soaring ‘sky sculpture’ of Arte-S in Bukit Gambier in Penang, when complete, will be an architectural marvel.
The pair of 29- and 46-storey towers by Nusmetro City Sdn Bhd, located on a 2.5-acre site, boast unique spiralling lines that create visual spectacles from every angle.
Achieved through the ingenious use of elliptical floor plates and waveform ledges, the facade’s varying profile evokes patterns left in sand when ocean waves recede.
This also ensures that views, whether of the sea, town or surrounding hillside, are slightly different from each of the 480 units.
They include the studio units sized from 590sq ft to 830sq ft with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as the family units between 1,313sq ft and 2,256sq ft with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Only limited numbers are still available, priced from RM560,000 to RM1.3mil.
The Arte-S project will be featured at the Star Property Fair 2015 at G Hotel and Gurney Plaza this Thursday to Sunday.
Nusmetro managing director Thomas Chan said the development, like others in the Arte series, would be a work of art distinct from other buildings, unique in its own way.
“The two and three-bedroom units are highly popular.
“They are affordably priced and their sizes are ideal for small or medium-sized families and working professionals.
“The reasonable rate of between RM650 to RM800 psf also affords buyers and investors a healthy space for capital appreciation.
“Rental demand is positive in this location, due to its close proximity to the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone where there are plentiful job opportunities,” he added of the project, set for completion in the third quarter of 2017.
The impressive facilities include communal sky gardens, with the upper one containing a pebble-inspired pod, and the lower one lush surroundings, both glowing spectacularly at night.
On the 35th floor, there will be a four- storey lifestyle Lounge Pod that serves as an entertainment and relaxation space for residents whilst also being a prominent feature on the facade.
Within it is a hanging Jacuzzi, which is believed to be not just the first in the country, but also the world.
Alongside that are hanging cocoons and entertainment lounges.
Artistic boundaries are pushed further at the expansive 50m long swimming pool which has an organic multi-layered design with built-in Jacuzzis.
The facilities also include the centrepiece Gym Pod that offers state-of-the-art equipment and an Aqua Gym.
Residents of Arte-S have convenience at their fingertips.
Dining and shopping amenities are all close by along the main thoroughfare of Jalan Bukit Gambier in the locality of Sungai Dua.
Arte-S is approximately 13km from Komtar, 7km from the Penang International Airport, and accessible from various directions.
