Earth Inspired Living Gaia presents the epitome of green and upscale living in an authentic eco-chic residence. Earth-inspired living at its finest. A breakthrough in Asia, Gaia is a visionary development that pushes the boundaries of green design and sustainable living in Singapore. An architectural breakthrough named after the Greek Earth goddess, Gaia makes a bold statement with its iconic facade and innovative detailing.


A Green Skyscraper Inspired by geometric shapes in nature, this stunning single-block residence with 28 exclusive freehold units is infused with the beauty of nature’s magnificent landscapes. Its cliff-like structure showcases a majestic 60-metre green wall that also forms a spectacular abstract art installation. Eco-savvy pioneers will appreciate the contemporary technology, natural airiness, sunlit interiors and eco-friendly efforts to harness the environmental powers with synergistic efficiency.


A platinum lifestyle This development has been awarded the

BCA Green Mark Platinum for its environmentally sustainable design.

The BCA Green Mark Scheme was launched by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) in January 2005 to promote environmental awareness in the construction and real estate sectors. It is a benchmarking scheme which aims to achieve a sustainable built environment by incorporating best practices in environmental design and construction, and the adoption of green building technologies. The benefits of living in a BCA Green Mark building include: • A reduction in water and energy bills; • An improvement in indoor environmental quality for healthy living; and • A reduction in potential negative impact on the environment.

The BCA Green Mark Platinum Award is the highest industry accolade being awarded to a green building project.

A Quality Home

The Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS) was developed by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) to measure workmanship quality in public and private building projects. CONQUAS is the de facto national quality yardstick for the industry. This development will be aiming for a high CONQUAS score. The BCA Quality Mark (QM) scheme measures the quality of workmanship in each newly completed residential unit. The assessment is based on a combination of visual assessment and measurement by tools to verify compliance to tolerances and standards set in the CONQUAS manual. Each Gaia unit will be issued a Quality Mark (QM) certificate. A QM home provides the assurance that the unit has been thoroughly assessed and meets the minimum standards of good workmanship as specified under the scheme.

Marble, Limestone and Granite Marble, limestone and granite are natural stone materials containing veins with tonality differences. There will be colour and markings caused by their complex mineral composition and incorporated impurities. While such materials can be pre-selected before installation, this non-conformity in the marble, limestone or granite as well as non-uniformity between pieces cannot be totally avoided. Granite tiles are pre-polished before laying and care has been taken for their installation. However granite, being a much harder material than marble cannot be re-polished after installation. Hence, some differences may be felt at the joints. Tonality and pattern of the marble, limestone or granite selected and installed shall be subject to availability.
