LIVING IN OLÁ

Live Inspired

Inspiration isn’t something you go seeking. It doesn’t come when called. It’s elusive when you search for it. It’s hidden in nooks and corners, slippery to hold.

Inspiration comes knocking at the most unexpected moment... An evening stroll, a coffee date, or cycling at the park or maybe it’s something that captures your senses: the vivid hues of sunset in an uninterrupted skyline or the salty breeze cooling your face.

Inspiration is something that comes to you, when you know what you need, and have what you want.

It’s in the everyday.

It’s here, waiting for you at OLÁ.

Mañana: Living For Tomorrow

Life at OLÁ can be as relaxed or as vibrant as you want. Embrace the philosophy of “mañana”, Spanish for tomorrow, and don’t take things too seriously.

Whether it’s carving out a cosy nook for a luxurious cat nap, or creating an environment where spontaneity is welcomed, an inspired life is a state of mind. So loosen up, have a siesta or two and enjoy your new home with a drink in hand.

LIVING IN OLÁ

Well-earned Siesta

The secret to Spain’s easy-going lifestyle might lie in their love for the siesta – an afternoon nap during the hottest hours of the day. Here are three tips to make the most of your forty winks.

Cultivate a habit

    Studies have shown that siestas are particularly useful if done regularly. So make sure to set aside some time every day.

Keep it short

    26 minutes seems to be the sweet spot if you want to avoid any post-nap lethargy.

Find your space

    Quiet, dark corners are great places to get comfortable and drift off. Nap experts recommend settling into a soft sofa or chair instead of a bed, so that you don’t fall asleep too deeply


CHAPTER I

Life as inspiration:
Eva Armisén

Where did great artists such as Picasso, Dalí, Goya and Miró get their inspiration from to create the masterpieces that continue to touch many long after their time? Let Eva Armisén, the Spanish artist behind the iconic paintings in OLÁ, bring us into her world of art and inspiration.

Eva loves to spend time in the countryside as it reminds her of childhood trips to the park with her parents.

Spending A Day In The Fields, 2017 by Eva Armisén

Spanish artist Eva Armisén never looked back after picking up a paintbrush when she was 12. The self-professed “shy” girl found painting a better medium of expression than writing, and a teacher she met further opened up possibilities of the worlds she could access through art.

“She taught me the joy of having something blank, perhaps a piece of paper or just my mind, and filling it by creating a new universe,” Eva says.

“Painting also showed me the power that came from creating parallel worlds where the real and the imagined can coexist. It’s a power I’ve never been able to abandon ever since discovering it.

I firmly believe that it can save us from everything.”

image


Her works today are recognisable around the world for her whimsical portraits of everyday life, brought alive with a bright but nuanced palette of colours, reminiscent of a surrealist sort of folk-art.

Often featuring variations of a core self-portrait — a girl with thick dark hair, cheeks daubed with a light rosiness, an enigmatic smile on her face, Eva brings back elements of whimsy and wonder through her portraits of life.

“I feel that the world we live in is too stressful and that there should be something which shows us things with more optimism,” Eva says. “Sometimes there are too many ugly things and fear which can manipulate and paralyse us.”

“Getting together around the table is a meeting where stories and intimacies are shared, and I paint these scenes to keep the moment in memory.

There is no mundanity in Eva’s works — only moments to be shared and celebrated. Eva’s ability to communicate the extraordinary in our everyday expands beyond the canvas to different mediums in which her emotions reside. Family, love, and togetherness are usually the focal themes in her art, whether in the form of paintings, public art installations and sculptures, even digital animations.

Eva has exhibited multiple times in countries including Hong Kong, Korea, California, Shanghai, and Barcelona. Image by Eva Armisén.

While the characters in her paintings appear simple, Eva’s works are by no means simplistic.

Her approach expresses the emotion in her portraits in the most direct way, bringing alive fundamental elements and reducing unnecessary embellishment: “I pay attention to small things around us, things we may think are normal because we have them every day.

But we will feel really bad and lonely if they are missing one day. Life will be really different.”

“My works talk about that. Little things that are really important: taking care of your beloved ones, and be aware of what you have around.”

Inspiration for Eva comes from every corner, and becomes a personal inquiry into her own emotions and experiences.

The organic flow in her creative process makes the act of painting a constant journey of discovery for Eva herself: “To me, every painting has its own story.

You create something from nothing and then it has its own life, and in turn it creates other stories. They have a life which is totally different from what I had imagined, and often it’s much better, it’s fantastic.”

CHAPTER II

Living an Inspired Life

Tips from Eva Armisén on discovery, wonder, and creativity around us in the everyday.

image

image

“Nothing is art if it does not come from nature. But man does not create… he discovers.” - Antoni Gaudi

image

image

“I can find a situation that makes me think that creativity and imagination saves us almost every day. We tend to think that creativity and imagination are linked to art, but it’s really about not letting our thoughts stagnate. It’s what makes us move forward in everything we do.”

Live
Conscious

Living well is more than 150 minutes of exercise per week or daily servings of fruits and vegetables. It’s about seeing our wellness of your body in a holistic way that recognises how the body and mind works and affects each other. It’s about working with nature to create a lifestyle that nourishes our body, mind and soul. It’s about living your best, in a way that works best for you.

This starts from being conscious about your own needs. Practising mindfulness in the everyday is the next step in making small but lasting improvements in a way that doesn’t feel forced, and that works for you. You’d be surprised by how simply paying attention to the things you do changes perspective, even if the buzz and rush of modern life makes mindfulness hard to reach.

So breathe in, and breathe deep.

So breathe in, and breathe deep.

image

Living conscious with OLÁ is about making wellness so easy that you can do it without thinking. Plenty of nature and parks give reason to make morning jogs and evening walks a habit. Even closer to home are swimming pools, indoor gyms, and classes from dance to yoga, zumba to cycling. With how much happier you feel each day, you’ll find yourself looking forward to jumping out of bed each morning.

CHAPTER III

How to make a house your own

Know what home means to you.

My home is where I don't need to pretend or feign anything. It's like having true friends around you, the unconditional and very few people you can be comfortable with. The concept of home goes beyond a physical space — it is also a state of tranquility. My house must be a space where trust reigns, together with my family. Together, we observe what we like to do and work out how we can reflect it in the space in which we live in, combining private and common areas where we are comfortable together.

image

image

Work with the elements of the physical structures and elements.

I like to combine old and modern elements in my houses.

My house in Barcelona was built in the beginning of the 20th century and I kept some of the original elements such as doors, balconies and old tile floors.

I also like to bring the outside into my home. I think that connecting and being part of the natural landscape gives me peace and happiness.


Let your childhood and influences build the character of your home organically

I try to surround myself with meaningful things. These could be beautiful object that inspire more beauty, or memories that make me connect with what I love but cannot physically with me, like my childhood. Sometimes I look at a sugar bowl from the 70s and I am automatically on vacation in Galicia with my parents and sister, smelling the sea, feeling the humidity on the sheets, the summer loves...

I also believe that all Spanish have had at some point a Lladró piece in their homes. My mother has a couple of young ladies in a showcase, while my grandmother also owned a few. I like how Lladró has learned to approach contemporary art while combining a magnificent tradition with today’s life.

Don’t forget nature.

I had always thought I was very urban and could never live outside the city. But I fell in love with this house in Sant Quirze, and living here has made me find a part of me which I didn’t know about before through contact with nature here, which I love.

Seeing green from the window, a tree, a bird and the blue sky even when I am in the city is inspiring. Even though I’m always working and running around and I don’t have time to go for a walk and enjoy it, it’s close by and I’m constantly looking at it. Nature now plays the part of the protagonist in my study, and I keep the windows huge to flood the space with light, trees and animals.

“Love is the most important thing.” – Eva Armisén

HERE AT OLÁ

Craftsmanship and Care

Creating a beautiful home requires time and patience. Every element in OLÁ is inspired by the intricate details and impeccable craftsmanship found in artisan objects, much like the awe-inspiring chandelier in the Casa Club. It is only in carefully balancing colours, materials, textures and shapes that a space can be transformed into a home.

And in the same way how ideas come to sculptors, potters, painters and artists, the process of designing OLÁ is also one that stems from the heart. The final masterpiece is a home that lives and grows with you.

The Niagara Gold Chandelier

Imagine returning each day to the golden cascade of light and wonder, made up of 300 handmade butterfly fairies, delicately lit by state-of-the-art light optics to cast magic light around the Casa Club. Designed to take your breath away, the exquisite dance of fairies between light is one that delights the senses in a moment where time seems to stand still. The rest of the day flits away, leaving behind a day of possibility ahead, to explore, discover, and experience.

Here at OLÁ, we believe in coming home to inspiration. With every step you take into the architecture designed with care, passion and attention to detail, you know you’re home.

Each of the 300 porcelain fairies are handmade by local artisans from Spain and affixed to the chandelier through silvery fiber-optics to create the illusion of fairies dancing in midair. Image on right by Lladró.


Designing OLÁ

The Inspirations Behind OLÁ

Ng Hoe Theong, the director at AGA Architects, shares in an exclusive on how the architecture and design of a place affect the way you live your life and create a home.

"...for dynamism, creating elevated gyms and details quite different from the typical flatness of other developments."

OLÁ is conceptualised as an enclave of modern sophistication. Living in OLÁ embodies the values of contemporary living by presenting a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city that is at the same time well-connected to amenities and the central via public transportation.

Finally! A home just for the two of us to look forward to after work and all the daily tasks Where we can try all our DIYs and saved recipes Grow plants and take lots of photos for our Instagram.

Sleep in during the weekends after our overnight face masks Wake up to sunshine and roll the blinds up without a fuss It’s time to cafe hop and explore all the food enclaves but not before a quick pilates, just to set the pace.

Young Families

All settled in now, and well on our plans
To enrol the kids at Nan Chiau, alma mater of our clan
Places to visit from heritage trails to green parks
Perfect to spot new butterflies and perhaps even some ducks.

First for the housewarming for the friends and family
With the weather sunny and cloudy, how nice it will be
The husband can’t wait to try the grill, the wife excited to bake
We’ll be ready with dips, meats, and pasta - for dessert we’ll have cake

And who can forget the chandelier, a great welcome to all dancing fairies of light waiting for night to fall
Always an enchanting sight taking the breath away
Making us proud to call OLÁ our home, a sanctuary night and day.

Mature Families

Barely dawn and we’re awake before the alarm rings
A new day ahead, it’s exciting to see what it brings
A quick breakfast at home, and we walk our kids together to school
Daddy grabs a coffee on his way to work, Mummy goes to the pool.

A swim before she jumps into calls at home for her own business venture
Though pregnant with a second child, she’s her own entrepreneur
Soon enough it’s noon. Time for lunch after picking the kids up
A playdate is planned for the afternoon, there’ll be ice cream if we’re in luck.

The afternoon flies by, none of us notice the clock
Only at 7 do we realise the time in shock
We say our goodbyes and start prep for dinner
But what’s this? Daddy is home with food, what a winner.

We sit around the table and share about our day
Watching the sunset fading into night as the kids have a bit of play
There’s housework to do, but with the Smart Home app
It’s much easier to get things done in a snap.

Tomorrow is full of business meetings for both Daddy and Mummy
Clean up and food prep done, some admin and accounting
Time to get everyone in bed and prepare for an early night
Essential rest and sleep, for more dreams to take flight.

image


Multi-Gen Families

Sunlight streams in. It’s quiet and serene
Our curtains billow softly to reveal trees green
We hear muted sounds of families in the pool below
What a luxury it is, a morning to take slow.

But not for long! The door opens and our grandkids hop into our bed
Chased by their mummy with their Milo and bread
“Wake up wake up! It’s time to eat!
Mama came back with all your favourite treats!”

It’s Sunday and we’re going to Sengkang Riverside Park
To find exotic fruit trees, learn about the mangosteen wood bark
Custard apple and pomelo, not the same fruits we grew up with
The grandkids look forward to pick and eat some lychees.

I myself want to spot some mangrove birds and sea otters
We’re preparing a picnic to eat by the wetland waters
It’s rare to be in a place where all you see is the sky
Where we can watch the clouds move lazily and planes flying by.

And then we have a movie planned for the evening
But not before walking home to be showered and clean
Slow days are my favourite, and the simplest of things
Is to be with loved ones, with joy, laughter, and peace.
