The Tembusu creates a humanized high-density living space by weaving a tapestry of sky gardens around three interconnected super blocks. The sky gardens become an extension of the units when they form a park network in the sky. This creates a layer of semi-public private spaces, which amongst residents promotes greater social interaction.

The vertical filaments of creepers and vines of different varieties create a totally new living façade, merging architecture with nature and softening the effect of the tall vertical columns. This green screen acts as a giant environmental filter. In the sky garden, sky pods acts as community spaces for a small private parties and events. Seen as an extension of the home, each sky pod allows every resident to enjoy the beautiful high-level views or to share their experience with friends.

The landscape is designed around a rain remediation system that is expressed as streams and ponds. The landscape changes during rain and has a system of tidal effects.

Facilities include party villas, playing lawn, spa gardens and a fully camouflaged tennis court. The party pavilions are spaces for gathering equipped with its own pool, pantry and a powder room.

The Siena is a low-rise complex of 54 living suites.

The apartment units are designed with multiple configurations allowing residents the luxury of choice and creativity. Units can be configured for family, work loft or open plan living. The mezzanine platform takes advantage of the high ceiling space to create additional space.

The façade comprises a series of volumes in a dynamic composition. The balconies are expressed as cubic volumes with framed open structure. Sliding perforated screens allow the volumes to open or close. The use of the balconies will form a lively expression on the façade of the building. The large rain trees surrounding the site are carefully conserved and lend a matured and cosy feel to the landscape. On the roof garden, the pavilions become markers for community spaces plunge equipped with outdoor kitchen and pools.


Setia Sky Residences is two pairs of 40 storey asymmetrical towers with a series of distinctive weave facade textures defining the crown and the street level that makes a dramatic silhouette in the skyline. By curving the towers on plan, the 422 units are primarily oriented towards KLCC, hence commanding the highest premium in KL.

On the 34th storey, a dramatic Sky club with lap pools, a jacuzzi, and a gym, spans two towers on a steel bridge. Every resident can enjoy the beautiful view of KLCC and Titiwangsa mountain range from this high vantage point. On this floor, the most exciting amenity is a set of stylish Sky Villas. The sky villas have beautiful panoramic view of the entire KL skyline dominated by KLCC and KL Tower. Fully furnished with equipped kitchens, and private lap pools, it provides a stunning venue for a gathering of family and friends.


The communal facilities are best in the class, including a fifty metres feature pool on the environmental deck with the landscape inspired by the beautiful curves of terraced rice paddy fields and the paintings of Roberto Burle Marx. The design cleverly provides intimate corners for community functions while exploiting the sense of space and vastness.

The Pinnacle@ Duxton is the winner of a worldwide architectural design competition held in 2002 to seek the latest high-rise high-density public-housing form in the city central business district. Seven fifty-storey blocks comprising of 1848 units, occupy only 2.5 Ha of land. It is home to almost 8000 residents, thrice the density of a normal housing estate precinct. At a density of around 320,000 persons per square kilometre, this Superdensity project is an important demonstration of the liveability of high-rise high-density housing.


Sky gardens reclaim land in the air by weaving the blocks with a vertical system of gardens on the 26th and 50th storey. This forms a powerful silhouette in the skyline that is central in the project’s identity. The sky bridges allow for more efficient sharing of services like water tanks and the façade maintenance unit.

The park on the ground is built on an architectural surface that is a topological manipulation to conceal the three levels of car park and building services in a new architectural hill. This raised new ground mediates between the private and public realm. On this new ground, a multi-layered system of programmes, activities and pathways enrich the communal surface.

The seven towers are 90% prefabricated. The façade is composed with 10 modules creating a highly differentiated façade using an undifferentiated construction system.

The two tower blocks are oriented to capture the best views of greenery surrounding this urban corner. The units have a unique L-shaped layout to create a sense of vastness and transparency while maximizing cross-ventilation to the units. Every unit has a large balcony and every master bedroom has expansive corner views. The private lifts of the units open into a cosy lobby that leads into a dramatic pace with a huge window and the view.


A system of bay windows and glass fins provide extended space for the bedrooms and a privacy screen. The alternating fins position give the mass a light and clean aesthetic. This reflectivity and visual complexity of glass is exploited to turn the façade with a unique identity to mark this important urban junction.

The double-volume attic units provide a huge lofty feel. In addition, the roof terrace with panoramic views and a borderless roof lounge that seems to extend to infinity are the perfect setting to watch the sunset and to chill out. An outdoor pantry complements the roof lounge. The landscape is urbane with large pavilions fully equipped with outdoor kitchen and dining spaces. The entrance is experienced as a stepped waterscape with screens that define the sequence of courtyards leading to the main pool deck that is a quiet oasis surrounded by cabanas.


A single tower of 33 storeys with sky terraces in six activity-suites rises from a cosy and lush garden. The units are designed to be flexible with the services tucked away from the periphery and the structures pulled away from the centre. Each bathroom has a unique balcony with an outdoor Jacuzzi installation.


On the 24th storey, the sky-high club provides a choice of sophisticated lifestyle settings. There is an infinity pool with the magnificent city skyline view, a lounge library, a spa pavilion accompanied by a Jacuzzi, a yoga fitness pavilion, and a dining suite. The sky-club is a perfect venue for a gathering of friends and community. 

The façade of alternating bay windows, faceted ribbons and balconies with metal screens are rendered in shades of white and grey to intensify the play of light and shadow. By night, this monochromatic façade transforms into an expressive polychromatic facade lighting installation created by LPA that artfully wraps around the tower.

The tower blocks of the Foresque residences are lifted over the ground allowing the landscape to flow through the tall buildings. Ground floor units are “cabana” units with private gardens and plunge pools. Sky gardens and terraces on the 2nd and roof level create vertical greenery and dramatic outdoor activity areas.

The 496 units cluster into 5 tower blocks that rise up to 24 storeys. The façade is designed as modules that combine to form an intricate composition using similar modules combined in various combinations. The combination of aluminium screens, corridors and balconies create a dynamic play of light and shadow on the façade.


The environmental deck is expressed as curvilinear lines and surfaces, a composition of swimming pools and aquatic ponds that form an undulating waterscape, edged with lush greenery to create a “forest” like natural pool environment.

The clubhouse and landscape pavilions are sculptural buildings of hyperbolic surfaces using linear aluminium elements. Housing function rooms, a gym, a home theatre and entertainment pavilions, it is strategically located to provide the best view of pool deck with garden rooms.

A large collection of antiques and a stepped site became the starting point for this project to create a family home. We floated a large rectangular form that is cladded with operable panels that carry small marble objects. 4 light wells punctuate the rectangular form to bring light and air into the courtyards in the house. Each courtyard is different in scale and function, creating unique softness in each space. On the roof, a pavilion opens up into a vast roof garden that overlooks the entire estate.


The ground slopes downwards from the entrance level to open up into a long lap pool with lawns framed by water features and long walls. Stone volumes support the rectilinear form allowing the living spaces to be completely open to the pool deck and garden.

Two 3m tall stone lions are set perfectly to provide a unique identity to the pool deck.
