YTL Headquarters

Winner | Malaysia | BCI Asia Awards 2020 Top 10 Architects

Previously occupying offices in different locations, the company aims to bring together the entire suite of departments (comprising 1,000 staff members) and provide them with space to work under one roof.

The vertically cavernous lobby spans more than 25 metres high, so the design challenge was to capitalise on the majestic quality of the space without dwarfing the human scale. As such, the lobby became a study in proportion, light control and a disciplined use of materials.

The marble cladding brings brightness into the space by reflecting the sunlight in the daytime. The composition of the marble-clad walls is denser at the bottom and lighter towards the top to give the impression of ascending lightness. Bronze horizontal striations and ridges break this continuous ascension with striking visual interests.
