THE OVERVIEW                   

Introducing 1919:

An inspired collection of seventy-five black and white apartments, 1919 recalls the charmed lives of ease and elegance associated with Singapore's colonial era.

Set amidst the stylish yet tranquil Mount Sophia neighbourhood, 1919 combines the distinctiveness of Singapore's iconic architecture with the latest sophisticated interior design. 1919 offers you a contemporary yet classic home that will remain timeless in its beauty, form and function.

Classic meets contemporary:

1919 draws inspiration from the rich history of its surroundings to create a 21st century version of the celebrated black and white house.

Fashioned to not only embrace the origins of the design, this innovative development has been crafted to thoroughly complement a modern-day lifestyle. Much effort has been made to bring the trademark features thoughtfully back to life and cleverly infuse them with contemporary design, materials and construction techniques. 

The distinctive black and white colour palette has been embraced both externally and internally throughout the seventy-five apartments, lending a stylish yet classic look to the development.

  A Tropical Architecture:

1919 is located in the illustrious Mount Sophia neighbourhood, an area enthused with a rich histrory dating back 1823. Strolling around the area today one can still get a flavour of Mount Sophia's impressive heritage, and whilst some of the iconic architecture still remains, it is now fused with modern structures - a mark of a true cosmopolitan city. It is this "old meeting new" that has provided the inspiration behind the architectural triumph that is 1919.

In particular, 1919 pays tribute to the original shophouses by, for example, reclaiming the beautiful facade and timber shutters and carefully mounting them on the courtyard walls as reminder of the site's heritage.

The firm's strategy is one of subtraction and control to preserve the necessary simplicity of spaces.

Polished To Perfection
The exterior concept for 1919 is architecturally strong and devoid of over-embellishment. In essence, the look is simplicity of the most sophisticated kind. Polished to perfection, the design focuses on structure and timeless style rather than artifice and extravagance.

The impressive ground floor entrance is flanked by white colonnades which fan out to form the base of the development reaching up to the second storey which is defined by sculptured balustrades that take direct inspiration from the original shophouses. The remaining upper floors are framed by a strong black outline creating clarity against the impressive skyline.

The front facade is further enhanced by adjustable white shutters whilst the back facade is adorened with bespoke motorised black and white striped blinds, a nod to the renowned characteristic of traditional black and white houses.

Monochromatic Elegance

Each apartment complements the distinctive architecture beautifully by continuing the black and white colour palette, ensuring a seamless transition from outside to in. The black overtones unify the space, whilst the white brings light and presence, creating a bold, highly stylised and glamarous interior.

1919 uses textures and contrasts to create an environment that is modern, yet still warm and inviting. Although the two main colourways are indeed black and white, neutrals have been skilfully added to keep the spaces relaxed enough for day to day living. 1919 combines robust materials such as beautiful granite work tops with the highest quality acrylic gloss cabinets, polished marble floors with textured diamond tiles. Clever interior twists such as classically inspired fittings soften the lines of the understated colour scheme, resulting in a harmonious living environment.

Relax & Unwind

Relax and enjoy the tranquility that 1919 personifies by taking a dip in the crystal clear swimming pool, fringed by an elegant timber boardwalk and stlish landscaping. Work off excess energy in the gymnasium or entertain friends with dinner parties at the impressive outdoor dining pavilion.

Entertain & Indulge

The poolside dining pavilion at 1919, which seats 12 people, is framed by intricate latticed screens creating a feeling of privacy during al fresco dinner parties. The open plan professional show kitchen is finished in stainless steel and boasts a built-in coffee machine, fridge freezer with water and ice dispenser, combi oven and microwave and four-zone hob - the perfect environment to bring out the aspiring chef in you.
