This week we are running one of the masterclasses for the Crafting Futures Pop-up Studio at Institut Kraftangan Negara organised by British Council Arts Malaysia and Glasgow School of Art, where we are also commissioned to design a ‘pavilion-like’ bamboo structure.

Look up our twitter and Instagram accounts for updates of […]
We have just completed an interior fit out exercise for a research institute in Kuala Lumpur where workspace partitions are crafted from industrial polycarbonate sheets and acoustic fabric panels framed with laminated rubberwood. Rubberwood are obtained from rubber trees and is considered an eco-friendlier source of timber than other hardwood types as they are faster to grow and are often leftovers from plantations after their ‘trees have ceased producing rubber sap’. The semi-translucent polycarbonate panels of the partitions provide privacy […]
Its been hectic for our team trying to complete this little structure in a week, but we are extremely pleased with the results. As part of World Urban Forum installations, the pavilion – called the urban brains – will act as an incubator of ideas where visitors are encouraged to express their urban pledges for a better city by writing them down on the coloured bamboo rings.

The Sri Rampai Pedestrian Bridge spans across a busy dual-carriageway in a thriving residential and business neighbourhood of Wangsa Maju, to the east of Kuala Lumpur. It forms part of a wider redevelopment of the area that turned it into a vibrant self-contained township featuring housing, malls, shops and offices. This 110-meter-long bridge provides a safe pedestrian crossing between the main commercial areas and the LRT (light rapid train) station. Read further on designboom

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 […]
