Located in suburban Subang Jaya, a young couple with two children were planning to move into a sprawling penthouse with an excess of 3,000 sq ft of space. An original unit from the developer, the existing unit was bare and empty and featured five bedrooms, all with attached bathrooms.
They needed a professional to help them fill in the blanks and got to know the Nevermore Group through a mutual friend. Although the firm is based in Penang, the team was excited to delve into their first design and build project in the Klang Valley and the client was very open to their ideas.
"What attracted us to this project was that we felt free to propose what was best for the unit. As the layout was pretty spacious, we could see endless possibilities upon site inspection and decided to take up the challenge," says Chuah Say Yang, Nevermore Group's creative director.
To ensure the space felt warm and welcoming while still retaining an elegant ambience, the designers settled on a contemporary Parisian concept with dark wood accents. A sense of arrival was created from the foyer, which was reconfigured to correct some layout errors.
