Mod­ern ser­viced apart­ments on Or­chard Road.

Con­ven­tional ser­viced apart­ments are of­ten more func­tional than stylish, cater­ing to the ba­sic needs of busi­ness trav­ellers stay­ing for a longer pe­riod of time than ho­tel guests. With in­te­ri­ors de­signed by Fb­eye In­ter­na­tional and hav­ing re­cently won the Best In­te­rior De­sign award at the Ser­viced Apart­ment Awards 2017, Oak­wood Stu­dios strays away from the norm and of­fers a fun, In­sta­gram-wor­thy liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

En­ter the check-in lobby and be wel­comed by pops of neon colours. At the lift lobby, a clubby am­bi­ence takes over with a wall light in­stal­la­tion com­plete with the quote “read my lips”. “You’ll spot sev­eral lip mo­tifs in var­i­ous parts of the prop­erty, as we wanted a sen­sual, cheeky vibe,” says Abi­gail Lam, the mar­ket­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager at Oak­wood Stu­dios.

Many fa­cil­i­ties are de­signed to cater to dif­fer­ent guests’ re­quire­ments and pref­er­ences. For ex­am­ple, the lounge and out­door seat­ing ar­eas on the first floor, which sport quirky de­sign fea­tures and art pieces, al­low guests to min­gle. Mov­able fur­ni­ture and large ta­bles of­fer flex­i­ble workspaces, too. There are qui­eter spa­ces within the prop­erty, such as the lush gar­den ter­race, where guests can re­treat to for pri­vacy. The rooftop sky gar­den houses the gym­na­sium, a swim­ming pool, and an en­ter­tain­ment deck.

With a se­lec­tion of stu­dio, one- and two-bed­room apart­ments, the rooms are decked out in mod­ern, con­tem­po­rary fur­ni­ture and fur­nish­ings. “As our guests usu­ally stay for at least seven nights, there are sev­eral per­son­alised ser­vices that we of­fer,” shares Abi­gail.

From rental of gam­ing con­soles, to re­quest­ing a pi­ano in the room, Oak­wood Stu­dios ad­vo­cates work-life bal­ance and en­sures res­i­dents feel at home dur­ing their stay. There is even a unique tea ser­vice, where cus­tomised brews based on your pal­ette and pref­er­ence are of­fered in-room.

In­stead of reg­u­lar ac­cess key cards, in-room smart­phones func­tion as apart­ment keys. These Sam­sung de­vices also of­fer com­pli­men­tary data and lo­cal calls, and can be brought out of the prop­erty for guests to en­joy ease of con­nec­tiv­ity on the go.

Si­t­u­ated in the heart of the city, Oak­wood Stu­dios is all about con­ve­nience, com­fort and stylish liv­ing – manag­ing to trump the con­ven­tional feel of ser­viced apart­ments.
