Timurbay Seafront Residence

BCI Asia Awards Top 10 Malaysia Architect 2021

Located in Sungai Karang, Kuantan, facing the South China Sea, the design emphasises on maximising the sea view so 85 per cent of the units face the shore. To blend the tall building with the surroundings, the architects created a layering effect—retail at the street level; four-storey podium with an inner courtyard; and linkways to the tower block.

Located by the sea, the materials used for the projects were chosen for their ability to withstand high salt content in the air. Such materials include higher grade stainless steel (alloy 316), galvanised railing and oxide paint for metal works. Alloy 316 is widely used in environments with a high corrosion risk, protecting surfaces from chlorides. External perimeter walls and internal walls, except for bathrooms, use precast wall panels, which were purchased locally to minimise carbon footprint.
