Hijauan House by Twenty-Nine Design

Kuala Lumpur-based studio Twenty-Nine Design has completed the Hijauan House project.

This two story contemporary home is located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Hijauan House by Twenty-Nine Design:

“Hijauan is a house in the city of Kuala Lumpur. Situated on a small plot in a mature residential development, we took the Malay term “Hijau” meaning “green” as our design directive.  Our aim was to avoid cutting a single tree on site.  As such, the house notches its way around the existing greenery, especially the two majestic 50 year old mango trees along the side boundary.

The ground floor of the house is all glass, and can be opened up to the tropical elements. The 1st floor bedrooms are shielded from the sun with timber screens as well as the tree foliage all around.  The massing of the house has been carved out all around with courtyards that bring in light, air, and green, making for tropical spaces that BREATHE.”
