Residents will benefit from a private gym, cinema room, games room and laundry facilities. There are also designated co-working spaces which will offer tenants a quiet space to study and work from home.

Apartments at Horizon come fully furnished. Furniture has been handpicked to complement the development’s surroundings. The ergonomic design of these apartments means that residents will have a wealth of space where they can store belongings without it feeling cluttered.  All bedrooms will be fitted with a queen-sized bed, complete with bed base and mattress with built-in storage space, as well as a wardrobe.
