Ethnically, Malaysian houses have a variety of its own unique design to the spaces, the rich
interior detailings and choice of furnishings originated from a mixed race culture of Malay,
Chinese, Indians and European influences. A home for an Indian culture, the corner lot of a
double-storey residence is settled at Bukit Mewah, which is translated as luxurious hill.
Built from a reflection of eastern houses roughly from the early 90s, the design outlook is
dated with its classic red flat rooftop and a large pitched overhang that made up the car
parking porch, besides glass windows are still grilled with patterned motifs. Savaging part of
its history, the resident is depicted with a new, refreshed look.
Classic with a simplified rustic feel, the interior is injected with a play of colours and textures
from the materials. From the entrance foyer, the shiny varnished wooden door is closed to a
bench laid for a resting spot, half-partitioned with a jumble artwork of colourful
Moroccan-tiled motifs pieced together. Meanwhile, low cabinets are held in place with gold
shiny surfaced columns.
Bringing in a slight take on Parisian style, the floors are decked with a mixture of light and
washed out wooden parquet flooring extending from the foyer to the dining area. All set for
meals of the day, the high wooden table is carpeted with an Islamic rug, joined with an
interesting, different mix of high stools in personalities, appearing from single units to a
bench-like seater for merrier gatherings.
For a warm ambience, the living space is given a bright red cladded brick wall. With the
floors tiled in expensive marble patterns, bulky olive grey leather couches, chic wooden
television console, coffee table and the old grandfather clock bring about a unique mishmash
of its kind. Maximising its space below the stairway, a hidden door can be swung open,
disguising as a wooden shelf, revealed as a storage space.
The kitchen would be the heart of this home. Being the largest space granted with a dry and
wet kitchen, the warm ambience carries through with the red brick wall whereas solid sapeli
wood is employed on certain parts of the wall mainly the food storage area, open-closed
kitchen cabinets topped with laminated cement tops.
Combining neutrals into the mix, grey stone tiles cover the remaining area while the jumble
Moroccon tiles are the finishing touches for the kitchen backsplash and the dish rack at the
dry kitchen. Instead of closed spaces, a framed rectangular cut-out broke through the
partition in between, visually connecting to the dining, making food preparation much easier.
Not forgetting the bathrooms, each has a distinct personality. From the floor to the walls, the
light washed out wood parquet tones surprisingly turned it more than ordinary. Whilst, a
darker translation is adapted with a smaller scale of wood herringbone pattern paired with
