The brief was to create contemporary styled home (10,000 sqft) for a family as well as their aging parents on the slope of Country Heights Damansara, Malaysia. The solution was to create a 2 storey building with a lower-ground floor that would house the parents bedroom and living spaces with their own private garden. The parents could stay connected with the family though a glass lift that connects to the family area at ground floor with the focal point being the infinity pool that opens up to the greenery beyond. Emphasis was given to the main staircase which kept all levels connected which acted as the core of the house.
