This 10-storey high-end residence is nestled off Jalan U-Thant Ampang Hilir, Kuala Lumpur, within a slew of embassies and other diplomatic installations.
This low-density development offers just 50 units in eight classic designs, with high ceilings, generous windows and contemporary finishes, blended with natural materials such as bamboo and mahogany. Greenery, such as a bamboo resting area and Japanese Zen Garden, is intertwined within all physically built up areas.
Each house is built with a north–south orientation, with ample fresh air ventilation and natural light to cultivate cool and airy indoor spaces with flexible and functional layouts. As the structural grids of the basement parking and large unit floor plates are not compatible to the optimal layout of rooms, the design team had to make minor adjustments and use a PT slab system.
Using a smart home system, residents are able to use do remote monitoring and management of Internet-connected appliances and systems, such as lighting and heating. A three-tier security system has been installed, together with round-the-clock security, CCTV surveillance and panic buttons and intercom linking to the guard house.
Social facilities, such as the infinity lap pool, playground, and barbecue area, meditation court, gymnasium and Zen Sky Lounge, are designed to bring everyone together. — Construction+ Online
