This project in Penang (our second) is a complete contrast to our first project – the Yap House renovation. The Condominium is located on prime hillside real estate with a sea frontage. It faces the Penang Bridge, which connects the island with the mainland.
Local regulations limiting the amount of construction on the hillside forced the design to gravitate at the base, where a long ramp takes visitors to a tropical lobby before transiting to the units.
The resulting design benefits from this restricted footprint, as the forest on the hillside are left untouched, forming a natural backdrop to the project. The project has received planning approval and is scheduled for launching in 2010.
