Here we have a 1 1/2 storey linked terrace home for a young family in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The owners contracted Yong Studio (formerly Yong Design) to rework the 20-year old building into something fresh and stands out from the repetitive linked homes.
With such an old building and limited space, the transformation for this project is rather impressive. Before even entering the building, the external facade and front court have already established a dramatic design that gives you an idea of what lies within. Hard angles, lines, and high contrast elements defines the highly modern concept applied by Yong Studio.
Inside, we are greeted by a seemingly large continuous space that holds the main living area, kitchen, and dining area. Vast, white surfaces run consistently through the length of this space, with only the furnishings and appliances to differentiate the functional spaces. These furnishings and embellishments feature wood and stone materials to match the highly modern design.
The bedrooms take on a slightly warmer tone, thanks to wooden flooring. Color contrast is done via green furnishings for the children’s room, while contemporary black, white, and grey define the master bedroom. Other highlights that add further luxury to this home is a glass-roofed airwell area that becomes an indoor garden. Then there’s the bathroom; matching the modern concept, but differentiating with darker tones of stone, tiles, and windows.
