The design of Chatham uses abstract lines, glass planes and geometric solids combined with colorful murals to evoke the tropics. The penthouses feature spectacular living and dining spaces, with private rooftop solariums with adjoining terraces and hot tubs. The spectacular swimming pool is surrounded by terraces and gardens for the feeling of a tropical oasis. Aqua Chatham residences feature Dornbracht faucets, Sub-Zero refrigerators, Bulthap wood cabinetry and marble countertops.
Artist Richard Tuttle's art installation SPLASH, a tiled mosaic extends the entire length of Chatham's structure. The immaculately landscaped exterior features a park as well as pedestrian and jogging paths which are "residents only" - secured through the private security gate. The community features several pools, including a heated pool with lap lanes, a hot tub and a children's pool. Aqua Alison Island also includes a market and dry cleaner for the convenience of its residents; and for the boating enthusiasts, Aqua offers plenty of dock space.
