With June being both Global Wellness Day (June 11) and World Wellbeing Week (June 27 – July 1), it’s a good time to explore how our homes and surrounding environment contribute to our health and wellness, as well as wellbeing.
According to the World Health Organisation, good health is not just the absence of illness or disease, but is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”.
In various studies about health, life satisfaction and quality of life, results have shown that contentment with our place of residence or neighbourhood play an important part.
This is affected by factors such as the built environment, services and facilities, social community and the green factor, among others. And they all come into play in 8 Conlay’s health and wellness elements.
Being a GreenRE-certified and LEED-certified development, 8 Conlay incorporates environmentally responsible and resource-efficient design and construction practices.
In the home, this means sufficient daylight and natural ventilation, along with measures to promote good indoor air quality. In our post-pandemic world, non-centralised air-conditioning systems make for a safer option, and is also more energy efficient.
Other elements include water efficient fittings and usage of low VOC paint, to ensure the safety and health of residents.
Amenities and services
Property specialists Savills reported that health and wellness amenities are key and in demand in light of Covid-19. For branded residences such as 8 Conlay’s YOO8 residential towers, it is only expected that services go beyond the standard fitness centre and pool, concierge, valet, 24-hour security and shuttlebus service.
Residents of YOO8 at 8 Conlay will uniquely be able to enjoy hotel-led services by Kempinski, with a list of à la carte offerings such as personal trainer, masseuse, private chef, laundry, daycare, butler on call, housekeeping, and reservations for dining and spa, etc.
Each owner will also have the Kempinski Discovery Platinum Card, which provides them additional benefits when staying at Kempinski properties around the world.
Environment and locality
The surrounding environment, community and locality of one’s place of residence is equally as important as the individual home. With space being a luxury and more coveted than ever, 8 Conlay offers close to two acres of recreational space – all within an urban city compound.
Its water lounge on level 26, designed by award-winning Thai landscape studio TROP, envisions an oasis in the sky with no end of relaxing ripple pools and a 25m lap pool amidst panoramic city views.
On level 44, a leafy sanctuary doubles as a multi-tiered park inspired by sloping Balinese rice terraces. This green refuge also houses a communal lounge, multipurpose entertainment or work area, library and games room.
Beyond the walls of 8 Conlay’s residential, retail, dining and lifestyle quarters, the availability of public transport – 8 Conlay will be about 400-metres away from the upcoming Conlay MRT Station – and being closely connected to key services such as banks, laundry, supermarkets, schools, clinics and restaurants within walking distance, all in all contribute to it being a prime choice for good living.
Tower A of YOO8 is set to be ready for handover by end 2022 and Tower B by mid-2023. To visit our 8 Conlay Gallery, contact us here.
