CapitaLand’s residence business unit, Ascott Limited (Ascott), recently unveiled Lyf (pronounced ‘life’), designed for millennials who want to experience destinations as locals do. Lyf is an accommodation tailored for technopreneurs, start-ups and individuals from music, media and fashion. Unlike conventional serviced apartments, the properties are managed by “Lyf Guards”, millennials who may be residents themselves, community managers, city and food guides, bar keepers and problem solvers all rolled into one. Designed to facilitate interaction between guests, each Lyf property has its own unique personality with fun and quirky design elements. They have ‘connect’ communal spaces, co-working areas that can be easily transformed into zones for workshops or social gatherings. The residence offers a range of apartment layouts from ‘big bed’ rooms (studios) to ‘two of a kind’ rooms (twin rooms) – two private rooms with a shared kitchen.
