KL Megastructures: An ultra luxurious architectural masterpiece


KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia’s pulsating centre of socioeconomic activity, boasts an increasingly integrated transport network, affordable living and a highly-skilled, English-speaking community that makes it conducive for multinational companies in the fields of nance, education, electronics and petroleum to set up a hub in Kuala Lumpur. Social and political stability, up-to-date infrastructure and a closely regulated property market have also positioned Malaysia as an ideal location in Southeast Asia for investors and consumers alike.

Today, a number of new developments around the immediate vicinity of the Petronas Twin Towers have emerged, but few stand out quite as prominently as the dual-tower residence of Le Nouvel KLCC by Wing Tai Asia. Its bold façade is accented by abundant, well-kept tropical vines creeping down the towers. Situated within this highly sought-after address and sitting on premium real estate.

Le Nouvel KLCC faces the Petronas Twin Towers and Suria KLCC, and is well-situated amid high-end shopping centres, top hotels and corporate offices. There is a rapidKL LrT station at doorstep and the upcoming Singapore-Kuala Lumpur high-speed rail station is just a short drive away, making it a convenient address for a second home within the region.

Apart from its prestigious and convenient location, Le Nouvel KLCC is an architectural masterpiece, and was conceived by principal architect Jean Nouvel, whose stellar works showcase his keen perception for the intricacies of light, shadow, transparency and opacity. The Pritzker Architecture Prize laureate has won almost every major accolade in architecture. In 2013, he won a competition to design the National Art Museum of China in Beijing. Other inventive works include the Louvre Museum in Abu Dhabi and the Tour de Verre in New York.

For this project, Nouvel collaborates with internationally renowned design luminaries such as lighting designer Hervé Descottes, landscape artist Patrick Blanc and the award winning interior designer Koichiro Ikebuchi.

Throughout the Le Nouvel KLCC property, those signature design elements are apparent. Once past the 24-hour security gate, a wall fountain greets residents and guests, twinkling from sunlight reflecting off the water.

Walls and pillars around the property are of glazed stucco— a material requiring skillful application—and changes in appearance throughout the day due to light and shadow play.

The details aren’t limited to construction alone, for unique design elements are also integrated into the building’s elements. Around 200 species of native tropical species of climbing plants grows on 8 sides of the façade of Le Nouvel KLCC, collected by Dr. Patrick Blanc, a notable French botanist specialising in tropical plants, credited for popularising the vertical garden concept.

Le Nouvel KLCC offers 195 luxurious apartments that are spread across two towers spanning 43 and 49 stories respectively, seamlessly connected by a pool deck on level 7 and a Sky Bridge on level 34. Here, you will be privy to an exquisite panorama of the city from the Sky Gallery, housed inside the linked bridge on level 34.

It also houses the Sky Lounge, Sky Kitchen and Sky Dining where you can indulge in delectable cuisine as well as cushy cigar and wine lounges.

Tower One features 78 units comprising two, three and fourbedroom suites, two Simplex units and two penthouses. Tower Two offers 117 units of two to threebedroom suites and two penthouses. Selected units in Tower Two are now available for preview, of which some of these are fully furnished and in move-in condition.

The plush and refined interiors feature beautifully appointed furnishings and artful, elegant detailing such as bespoke silk screened window panels, with unique designs in each residence. White marble flooring, Poggenpohl designed kitchens, Miele household appliances and Lema wardrobes enhance the luxurious settings.

Premium facilities abound. Swimming pools, a state-of the-art gym, and an expansive yoga room beckon, as do family-friendly facilities such as spacious game, theatre and karaoke rooms.

Le Nouvel KLCC is an exclusive, low-density world that affords an intimate sanctuary. For a private viewing to Le Nouvel KLCC, be sure to call ahead for an appointment.
