Scandinavian design emerged in the 1950s in the four Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, as well as Finland. It is a design movement characterized by simple designs, minimalism, functionality, and low-cost mass production. It’s essentially timeless with sleek lines and a neutral palette that adds a sense of elegance to any home.
Today, the same style adorns South Forbes Golf City’s condominium development, the twin-tower Scandia Suites. The development is the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed golf resort city at the Sta. Rosa–Tagaytay corridor.
“The mix of minimalism, functionality, streamlined contours, quality materials, and quirky details is what sets Scandinavian design apart from the rest,” said Cathay Land president Jeffrey Ng. “And with its sophisticated style and functionality, it highlights the innovative spirit and unique character that South Forbes is known for.”
Scandia Suites is a walled compound where security is of utmost importance and amenities are kept private for the enjoyment of its residents.
Early birds who need a burst of endorphins before heading on to work can take an hour of jogging at the path which runs along the perimeter or take a few laps at the pool. Of course, post-work workouts can also induce a deeper sleep. After the rigors of school, children can come home and spend a few minutes at the playground with other kids before hitting the books again.
Shopping services will never come easier with the ground level dedicated to the immediate needs of its residents. A double shot of espresso from the café can kick-start the day while shopping for essentials like food, toiletries, or magazines at the grocery can complete a shopping list. Mom can wait for her laundry to finish at the laundromat while getting a perm at the salon next door. It is total convenience without having to drive in heavy traffic or to search for parking.
Homeowners these days prefer a residence that is high in style but low in upkeep. There are four basic unit types to choose from: studio, one, two, and three-bedroom units. And for those who need some more extra space, loft units are located on the topmost floor.
Should one decide to avail of a fully-furnished unit, he will certainly enjoy the timeless, fresh, and elegant design motif – one that’s free of clutter, yet warm and welcoming. It makes a nice change from traditional designs.
Residents are most fortunate with work and school only a few minutes’ walk away.
In fact, the Learning Links Academy of Sta. Rosa, which offers from pre-school to secondary levels and a day care center, is just beside the compound so the kids do not even have to cross the street.
Higher education at the South Forbes City Colleges is approximately 15 minutes of leisurely walk from home. Across from the College is the center of South Forbes’ Business Cluster, the Cyberpark, which features world-class, built-to-specification buildings suited for BPOs and call centers, supported by The Astoria Plaza South Forbes Business Hotel and Conference Center.
The 18-hole South Forbes Golf and Leisure Club is common to all residents through free membership at no activation cost. And through the affiliation shared with the IMG Sports Club, members are entitled to privileged access and special discounts to 42 other golf and sports clubs worldwide.
