Vermani House Completed

90 Jalan Setiamurni 1

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.
