Located in Bukit Damansara, the ‘8D house’ was built for a two generational family and includes resort-like facilities and green sustainable features. It is a modern and green resort home situated in the middle of a busy city.

The property is located on a lot that sloped down by about 10 meters and that provided the opportunity to design a tropical verandah that’s 70m long and ties the entire design together.
