One of our residential projects, the Sepang House, is coming close to completion. The detached house with a large sheltering roof is located in Sepang, Selangor and is progressing swiftly towards completion in June 2015 with the contractor now concentrating on the interiors.
Eleena is one of the four mentoring architects in the Undo-Redo Workshop organised by #BetterCities running between the 2nd of March until the 13th of March 2015. She is leading the ‘Progressive Future” group where it will explore new potentials for a public site in Damansara Jaya. The group will explore the idea of an interactive environment, an environment with forms that would be able to be altered to accommodate the needs of the current users and the changing conditions of the future.

Recently completed, this concrete house is a remodeling exercise of an existing 2-storey semi-detached house in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. To turn it into a new family home for a couple with a young child, the existing has been stripped bare leaving only its structural frames onto which new walls and roof are added. The idea here is that the house will be rough, to feel real, inside and outside – and to do away with ‘cosmetics’ of paint and plaster. As such, the house displays raw construction and tectonic quality – giving it a special poetic dimension.
