CANOPY HOUSE AT UKAY HEIGHTS


Architect's Note
This 3 storey 14,000 plus sq ft house was built on an existing sloped property of 15,255 sq ft at 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.
