About Gramercy Residences

Appropriate conditions for high-rise living in the tropical climate, coupled with a shortage of open social space in Makati City, allowed the designers to introduce a recreational social space that caters to the building’s residents, as well as visitors, in the form of a two-level Sky Park at the 36th and 37th stories. Recreational facilities include a gym, swimming pools, bar, library, crèche, movie theatre, and spa / wellness areas, within a garden-like setting that seeks to improve comfort levels and moderate the immediate micro-climate.

Landscaped skycourts and skygardens, particularly when deployed at a critical activity center midway up the tower, can encourage people to spend more time outdoors, undertaking social and recreational activities and thus heighten the likelihood of social interaction through chance meeting. The horizontal greenery of the original Gramercy Park in New York has been extrapolated and rotated 90 degrees to effectively create a green wall “mural” within a contemporary vertical community on the other side of the planet.
