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?
