Concrete geometry!

This home is designed as a series of stacked rectangular volumes covered in a geometric concrete


 

 

This one-of-a-kind home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is the product of two conflicting facts: 
First, the site backs onto a lush forest preserve,
and second, the clients don’t like to spend time outside and wanted to maximize the interior space of their future home.

 

So architect Lee Cherng Yih of Formzero decided to get creative. Rather than find ways to physically open up a home to nature, Yih turned to the idea that windows can connect the homeowners to the landscape just outside their doors.

One of a kind

 

The home is designed as a series of stacked rectangular volumes covered in a geometric concrete shell perforated by square windows. The shell offers thermal protection from the sun, in addition to cross ventilation  —and the space in between becomes a series of semi-indoor garden.

Inside, the door opens to a large entry, connected to a hall with the central staircase, which foregoes a traditional bannister in favor of a screen of metal rods.

 

  

The hall leads to a lounge, living room, dining room, and kitchen. Upstairs, the second floor holds five bedrooms, including a spacious master suite. The top floor has two more bedrooms and two recreational spaces.

  

The interior materials palette combines concrete with light and dark woods, white walls, and black metal accent frames.
