Sekeping Kong Heng in Ipoh, Malaysia by Seksan Design

Saturday, April 6th, 2013

Article source: Seksan Design

Sekeping Kong Heng, in the charming old town of Ipoh, is the latest addition to the Sekeping family of retreats. It is located in a 3 storey neo-classical building which also houses a famous coffee shop of the same name on the ground floor that serves great coffee and the best local dishes in town. All effort has been made to preserve as much of the character of the existing building as possible in contrast to the surrounding new architectural interventions. In addition, an extension has been added at the back, tucked away to reveal an inner courtyard with a dramatic stairway to take guests up to their rooms.

The project is my final year design thesis (2007). The building acts as a catalyst for future development around the abandoned mining lake, and is a reminder of the glory days of tin mining in the country. The program takes visitors through the rich history of tin mining around the country and finally ending the journey in the existing abandoned tin dredge.

S11 House in Selangor, Malaysia by ArchiCentre

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: ArchiCentre

The S11 house is located in an established older suburb of Petaling Jaya. The existing old house on the site was built in the early 1960’s and had become dilapidated and run-down over the years. A new green tropical house was planned for the site and conceptualized along the lines of a tree. The large tree canopy would cover and shelter the living spaces underneath it. The S11 House was designed to achieve the highest level Platinum rating of Malaysia’s Green Building Index (GBI).
There were five significant existing trees on the site.

Cave Cafe in Subang, Malaysia by Meta- Studio

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Meta- Studio

The Cave Cafe is a place for people to chill out which serves the customers with finest coffee in Malaysia. The design of the Cave Cafe is inspired by the definition of cave. Cave is natural underground space large enough for a human to enter. Beside it is known as a big hole, the feeling of being inside an enclosed space with one or few sources of light is extremely important. Today’s cave is commonly safe and equipped with enough lighting installation. In Cave Cafe design, the level of brightness is maintained from behind the series of laser-cut stripes.

Le Mon House in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by Fabian Tan Architect

Friday, June 15th, 2012

Article source: Fabian Tan Architect

The renovation for this 1.5-storey terrace home was meant to be quite simple, but it became a more extensive project. The owners, a mother and her daughter, were very receptive to new ideas.The principle idea of the design is inspired by the Japanese culture ideal on detail and restraint. This intention was expressed through light and material to form the pureness of space. Almost all the details were construed through reasoning more than mere aesthetic play.

Angkasa Raya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by Buro Ole Scheeren

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Ole Scheeren

Angkasa Raya, situated in Malaysia’s capital at the intersection of Jalan Ampang and Jalan P. Ramlee, directly across the well-known Petronas Twin Towers in the heart of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), presents a new typology in high-rise skyscraper design that overtly expresses the inhabitation of diverse urban activities in a tropical environment and captures the vibrancy of the city’s multifaceted culture. Angkasa Raya is comprised of five distinct elements – three floating elevated tower blocks and two multi-level zones of open horizontal slabs – that are autonomous yet connected to one another in a uniquely stacked and shifting configuration of varied functional and urban typologies. Rather than competing with the Twin Towers in the form of another “twin” or blending into the surrounding context of singular towers on a podium, Angkasa Raya offers a new contemporary reading of the capital city and stands as an icon of the harmonious and dynamic balance of Malaysia’s cultural multiplicity and diversity.
