The house is a typical single storey terrace house on a plot of 23′ x 75′ land. The original house layout is typically closed and the brief was to create an open plan on one side and private rooms on the other side of the dividing center wall.
Fabian Tan Architect
Fabian Tan graduated with Honours from the University of South Australia in 1997 where he received his Bachelor of Architecture. Since then, he has worked at established architectural offices in Kuala Lumpur & Melbourne, handling a wide range of developments that include residential, institutional, commercial and interior projects for 11 year.
Nestled in a high-end enclave at Kuala Lumpur, this bungalow house is an ancestral residence that is home to a young family. Their brief was to modernize the home while preserving its existing layout and form to conserve their familiarity and comfort.
This semi-detached modern house was rebuilt for a young family on a 60’ x 90’ piece of land. Laid out over two different levels, the lower section of the plot houses the car porch with a ramp and staircase, connecting it to the home which sits on the higher land area.
