A taste of the tropical life
Striking new home in Malaysian resort from Arkitek Axis
Mines Resort City is a famous resort located south of federal district of Kuala Lumpur in Seri Kembangan. Over years of development, that area now consists of premier bungalow lots, apartment buildings, shopping centres, hotels, business complexes and theme parks connected by an artificial canal. The premier bungalow lots in Vanda Precinct of Mines South Lake offer evocative tropical homes in a secured environment and landscaped walkways to create quality lifestyle in this much sought after development. Situated in a quiet environment, the site measures about 8,564 sq ft with a built-up area of 9,313 sq ft.
Houses designed for the tropics should address the contextual elements inherent in the region; the need for cross ventilation, shading from sun and rain, the flow of interior space to exterior spaces, the abundance of lighting and the opportunity to incorporate landscaping into the design. The design objective of the house was to create a modern home whilst addressing elements mentioned above and provide good views to the surrounding environment based on the client brief.
Lot 46 is a 3 storey luxury home with 2 separate car park spaces located at both sides of the entry to the living and dry kitchen area. A series of elements like an infinity pool, pavilion and landscape articulate along the edge of double volume living and dining hall. A circular void of suspended canopy roof structure is dramatised by a tall tower tree via the void. Full height glazing along the living and dining hall simultaneously maximise the views to the outside essential pool area and pavilion.
The services areas like the wet kitchen, laundry and maid room are allocated at the east side of the house. The first floor level is provided with three bedrooms connected by a central family hall, overlooking the living area, whereas the spacious master suite with 2 roof top sky gardens occupies most of the second level, bringing the luxury of the indoors out to the comfort of an outdoor water and garden terrace.
