The design of VIIO@Balestier balances the need to integrate with its surroundings, which includes the Zhongshan Park development, and the need to create a landmark building at the corner of Balestier Road. The project combines good design sensibility and compact living in the form of a 12-storey residential tower above a two-storey retail podium. An exclusive sky terrace on the podium roof forms an urban enclave with a pool, Jacuzzi, gymnasium, and gourmet pavilion, surrounded by lush greenscape. All units are oriented north-south, allowing residents to enjoy the views from their balconies. The simplicity of the façade is expressed through clean vertical lines that are carried through to the interior. The façade also showcases the rhythmic interplay of various L-shaped profiles, with gable ends on its east and west.
