A Mansion With A Homely Feel.
This week the Property of the Week award goes to the YTL residence. The house marks a significant feat of collaboration that encompasses architecture, engineering, interior design, and landscaping.
Yeoh Seok Hong, the owner of the property wanted a house that could house three generations of his Chinese-Malaysian family. The house gets its name from Hong’s father Yeoh Tiong Lay, founder of the YTL Group.
The house has three floors which consist of nine bedrooms, living areas and family areas.
The interior borrows heavily from western open space kitchens and there is also a hint of Chinese influence aswell.
This main living level features an impressive 16-foot-high ceiling and a glazed wall facing east toward a stunning view of downtown Kuala Lumpur.
What is most impressive about the property is how it combines a homely feel, whilst having the space of a mansion. For example, small weddings can take place in a sleek but spare chapel; for bigger nuptials, a wall of glass panels retracts for more guests.
Also the adjourning ballroom can fit over 200 people, the formal dining room can seat up to 30 people. Withing these three space there is a plethora of bathrooms, 13 to be exact.
YTL house is an original attempt to define a new residential architecture for a tropical climate, if at a scale few will find feasible to emulate.
