Evoking the scale of great prewar apartment houses, each of
the 47 floors up for private
ownership holds only 2 homes,
with elevators that open
directly to the foyer.
The size of each apartment
significantly exceeds current
industry standards for top-tier
buildings.
The building's design ensures
every home is a corner home,
with views and ventilation
drawn not just from two but
three sides.
Air and water supply undergo
a series of filtration processes
to produce a clean and healthy
environment.

7. THE ROYALTON
- Designed with proper orientation
from the sun and wind
- Blocks off solar heat from the
afternoon sun
The design inspiration of the building
is The Veil. The veil seems to
lightly wrap on the building as if to
flutter and flap in the wind. The fold in
the fabric of the veil becomes the
balconies of the units. Just like the fold
of the fabric, the balconies will not
have the same cuts and sizes, giving
us unique lay-out on each floor and
different features in each units.
