Modern resort living in an exclusive urban enclave
Lot 46 is an extreme 3 storey luxury home in Mines South Lake, Malaysia. Designed as a self-contained unit for maximum comfort in the tropical heat, the project works to create a carefully measured balance between the indoors and outdoors.
A series of elements such as an infinity pool, pavilion and landscaping articulate the exterior of a double volume living and dining hall and full height glazing simultaneously maximizes the views to the outside, merging interior and exterior into one seamless space.
Both the interior and exterior spaces are highly stylised with dramatic integrated artistic touches, such as a stairwell void populated by coloured metal circles. Circles work throughout the project contrasting with the otherwise severe dominant edges. A circular hole through a suspended canopy roof structure to the exterior is dramatized by a tall towering tree growing through the void.
The service areas - the wet kitchen, laundry and maid rooms - are allocated to the east of the house. The first floor level provides three bedrooms connected by a central family hall, overlooking the living area. The spacious master suite with 2 rooftop sky gardens occupies most of the second level furthering the symbiotic relationship between the luxuries of the indoors and the comfort of outdoor water and garden terraces. The house also features parking for two automobiles.
