DESCRIPTION

 

This 3 storey  house was built on an existing sloped property  in the mature neighbourhood of Ukay Heights, Kuala Lumpur.

Being up on the hill with its jungle like setting, the design priority was to co-exist with its natural surroundings. In order to preserve the existing slope with minimum cuts the structure was designed to straddle down the slope. The existing rain trees on the site with its huge canopy inspired the idea of a roof canopy in which all the habitable spaces would be arranged under it’s protection and yet being open and one with its landscape.
