Home, sweet overdose.. home!

Contemporary Oasis

YTL Design Group from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, invited Paris-based Agence Jouin Manku to design the residence of a Malaysian power family (beyond power family).
This home, sweet home, is the ultimate expression of the influence, modern, taste and industrial-scale capabilities.

Three generations of the prominant family inhabit the 3,000 square-meter residence, the “theme-park” includes nine bedrooms, two family rooms, a family kitchen and a private dining area, a family library, a game room, a study, a public reception area, a formal dining room, a ballroom, chapel, 21 bathrooms, a swimming pool, two guest suites plus indoor private and guest parking.

Elegant circular softness manages to permeate the sightlines and key details of the building. Inside, prominent examples of this curvilinear elegance, and the round ballroom chandelier of 13,000 custom-designed undulating petals of unglazed cast porcelain biscuit. What about the stone table?

Seriously? WTF! I love contemporary homes, but this baby can’t be considered a home.
Mr. YTL, where can I leave my resume?

I’m on my way, I’m on my way

Home sweet home, tonight tonight


  1. Stop already… this is unbelievable. Who can combine so many genius ideas and make them cohesive in one beautiful design? YTL please sign me on… I have much to learn.

  2. Maybe theres something wrong with me but i think it´s to much of everything. The outside design of the house looks like something from an old star trek movie “time to dock cpt”.

    I like the pool tho.

    I wanna live here. That is beautiful man! I wouldn’t even have to go to the beach i could just imagine it.

    Wow! That staircase (and everything else) is astonishing. I know what you mean about this not being a “home,” though. That said, it does help you to see beyond the conventional. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  5. I actually just wanted to say thank you for your ‘like’ of my Card Project at Art Rat Cafe – but seeing this article I must add – remember the Palaces of Versailles and Fontainebleau in France – remember the French revolution and why it happened – do the math!
    As an artist I appreciate the architecture but as a human living in the economic mess of the world today I can’t help thinking how many homeless folks this extravagance could house!

    • You`ve got a point there, I completely agree with you, but in the other side it is an incredible architecture that must be shared with everyone, right?

  6. Bellissima! I particularly love the wood staircase..well..if I have to tell the truth the first thought that came to my mind was: how to maintain all these beatiful polished surfaces so….polished?? I suppose kids are not allowed (or they come with a private maid). Anyway, I would not say NO if they invite me for a short stay ;-)

    • I’m sure they don’t have a maid, but a cleaning team living in the house. lol
      I would love a short/long stay too.. where’s my invite? :P

    I, too, am in awe of that staircase! Since no one else has mentioned this, though, I feel I must: TWENTY-ONE BATHROOMS. That is just insane.

    I think it’s a gorgeous place to look at, in concept, but I could never live there.

    • I know.. twenty-one bathrooms is ridiculous, but oh well, it’s a three generation home, plus their acquaintances and staff.. LOL
      Tkz Adrienne

  8. It’s very cool, I want to jump from the second floor into the pool. But it seems more like a hotel than a “home.” I can’t imagine anyone living there and just hanging out.

  9. This edifice is kinda looks like a nest and doesn’t feel much appealing from outside! But oh man! What are these guys brains made of?? Just love the interiors and the whole idea of the house :) :) Started yearning to get a home like this LOL…
    Your blog is so cool :)
    BTW thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post :) Am glad you liked it :)

    At a certain point in some people’s lives money flows like water with no water shortage! I agree I don’t know if you would call this a home or a Campus. LOL!

  11. Too modern for me – I’d have nightmares in the place and I really don’t like “hard” homes with lot’s of glass, metal and bare floors. I’ve only spotted 2 rugs – ooh not for me. . .!
    It’s just not .. . .home.

    • It’s all about taste, it’s definitely an intriguing concept, some will love, some will hate.
      Let us know if you find something superb, that you love! We might post later on ..
      Thanks a lot

  12. All that I can say is WOW, I could be lost for days; perhaps I would leave a note on the kitchen island (err, continent), gone to to the bathroom, I f I am not back in 20 minutes…please call for help.

    WOW, especially at the stair case. I’d love to visit homes like that but of course I’m way too old fashioned to live in a place like that. Plus it’s not quite in the budget, lol.
