House No.100 is nestled in the Mansions, an exclusive gated community in Desa ParkCity, Kuala Lumpur. The house is located on a hilltop with commanding views over the community club house and swimming pool. The striking feature of the house was the 10 meter wide double volume rectangular box enclosing the main living spaces on the ground floor. The concept was to enhance this large space by transforming it into an intricately crafted timber panelled amber jewel box.
Golden teak ply was used to create large vertical fins and shelves that wrap around to encapsulate the entire space. Strip lighting was built into the rear of each panel of ply which illuminates and brings the entire timber framed sculpture to a golden amber glow. The centre piece is the white sculptural steel rod suspended stair that floats like a piece of modern industrial art that ties all the floor volumes together. The flooring is finished with a textured neutral grey marble. A large modern cut twelve-seater teak dinette table and industrialist steel kitchen cum bar completes the ritzy and classy get-together space.
A dialogue naturally develops from the play of the volume and surfaces tempered by the golden teak wood grain, polished stainless steel and fabric, converging to define a bright, contemporary and abstract interior space. The master bedroom is served by a long reflective mirror lined row of walk-in robes. The thin profiles, amplifies the elegance of the space. Selected raw materials add to the purity of the surfaces transforming the spaces through the use of glass and light. The sleep area employs a warn tone finish to better ease and unwind. The master bathroom is modern minimalist with calacatta finishes around the shower alcove.
Lighting for the entire home are all energy saving. These configurable LED modules offer a high degree of flexibility, aesthetics and functionality which can be easily adjusted for optimum lux level and colour temperature to satisfy the various functions of the space.
