Cho House is an elegant and sculptural family haven located on recent highly sought after city, Bukit Jalil. Embracing the site context setting while retaining privacy was a primary concern of the client and project brief....
Our response was to design a simple, uncluttered composition of stacked block forms interlinked and cut open to exposed the interior spaces internally. The composition of the building consists of two white, elongated boxes shifted against each other. They include not only rooms but also open voids. The warm colour of the wood emphasizes the niches and contracts with the ascetic white of the building.
Large sliding glass doors open fully to dissolve the boundary between interior and exterior spaces. Terraces flow off the main living areas and lead to a private garden containing a swimming pool and water feature.
The living areas within the house are restrained and minimal. The entire ground floor is open and inter-connected yet does not feel stark or sterile. The kitchen is carefully detailed with a functional cooking area concealed in a separate annex, allowing the occupants to enjoy the primary space without clutter.
This is a building that celebrates its location and compliments the site context and surrounding landscape, yet still provides a comfortable retreat away from a very busy urban environment. The use of simple line and geometry form is distinctive of our studio and find its best expression in Cho House.
