Vona Parkcity

Vona Properties Group in currently developing a mixed development project named Vona Parkcity in Bukit Gambier, Penang. One of the key features of the project is definitely the iconic Vona Sky Condominium with two skyscrapers containing 599 condo units ranging from the size of 1,100 sq.ft. to 1,800 sq.ft. The towers reminds me of another project in the area called Arte S. The first thought that came to my mind when I saw this project was that have they changed their design already which is a very common thing for developers to do in Malaysia. The towers look like a much watered down version of Arte S with its more conventional form. The overall dynamic forms are based solely on the protrusion of balconies and fins at different directions. In terms of form, it is still relied on stacking two dimensional planes to form a dynamic 3D object. This is unlike Arte S which is essentially a very fluid form throughout. Anyway, Vona Sky Condo is still a very interesting project that doesn't look like other typical boxy type apartments that have been mushrooming on the island in recent years.
