This tropical style house with stunning views of the Genting peaks in the distance located in Jandabaik was artistically designed by Architects MJ Kanny to perch on a piece of land jutting atop a hill. The challenge was to preserve the natural beauty and have a abode that blends into its surroundings so the front elevation was created on stilts to preserve the steep slope and trees around the site. As per the client specifications the architects created a BBQ region with a pavilion on one edge of the site and also a rain water retention tank to irrigate the 1 acre site.

Sustainable design elements like wind chimneys and large windows were applied to ensure that mountain air wafts into the house during hot summer months keeping the interiors naturally cool. Glazed windows keep away harsh sunlight while providing stunning views of the hills and valleys before the house. The residence is a symbol of luxury and comfort with eclectic fusion of muted colors spread in every part of the house. Using natural elements to beautify the ceilings in every room of the house, the designers have designed every section with painstaking detail.

Let us explore some some private and public parts of the house in this exclusive tour…

The interior of this house has an elegant mix of informal industrial and modern styles which also helps to make it interesting and unique.


1. Front elevation

The rectangular layout of the modern house built on two levels has a downward sloping roof that keeps the upper regions cool during summer while the glass facade provides stunning views of the hillside. This structure superimposed over the hillside with a strategically placed pillar foundation represents a traditional touch in modern architecture. Large picture windows and brick exteriors are hallmarks of this design and emphasize the strong layout of its striking structure.

2. Front side entrance

It is on street level that the pathway leads up the driveway into the garage while another section leads to the front entrance The sides are adorned with trees while the tall brick lift shaft designed like a chimney look like an artistic piece. The wide walkway designed like a fashion show catwalk ramp is adorned with brilliant cement seals and brick pieces. The landscapers with the help of owners have created an attractive and welcoming entrance for members and guests.

3. A lavish living room

The lavish layout and structure of this stylish living room will make you wonder is this a dream or reality? This ornate modern meeting is impressive due to its decoration and furniture comprising of light leather upholstered sofas in the room's center and adorned with pillows that look like gems to illuminate the layout. Instead of using a traditional or more common railing for the stairs leading to the upper level, the designers have used slim rods to make the area look open and plush.

4. Cozy dining area

This classic style dining room is no less stylish than a five-star restaurant. The roof has an invisible light arrangement while the microwave is placed at the back to heat the food for convenience. The dining table and chairs are beautifully structured using wood in harmony with the requirements of the room. The layout creates a beautiful atmosphere of food and family discussion.

5. Kitchen for a large family

This inspiring design shows how effective use of space can make every area functional. The combination of open glass and wooden cabinets above and below the counter ensures that every inch is used effectively. A combination of brown granite counters and glass cabinets reflect natural light in the custom designed builtin kitchen layout structured to sustain a large family .

6. Lavish master bedroom

This master bedroom oozes charm and luxury like the rest of the house with its large French windows that give beautiful vistas of the countryside from the bed. The warm wooden floor, lavender hued walls and plants close to the windows add an aura of mystic calm to the bedroom.

The lower level walkway that lead to the bedrooms are encircled by trellis made of timber and lined with natural bricks that allows free movement of air and keeps this region cool during summers and free of musty air during heavy monsoons.

8. Master Bathroom

The Scandinavian style bathroom here has been built in a unique way with natural elements that are perfect in their place but different from the traditional designs. The stone washbasin seen here set up above expansive cabinet adds life and beauty to this space. The use of light colors and a simple color palette along with the unique glass roof that lets natural light into the bathroom transforms the region.

Modern furniture, natural light and artistic ceiling are the main features of this bedroom. A large glass door opening into the balcony makes the cozy bedroom a wonderful place to tuck in for the night!

Less floor space does not mean that bathroom will be cramped and stuffy. Light colors and open layout give visual depth to the region while the shower area instead of a bathtub saves floor space. Other essentials like shelves or washbasins are wall mounted and plants attached to the wall make the region feel fresh and clean.
