Mesra Terrace is located in the newly developed Dutamas area of Kuala Lumpur. A luxury low-density gated and guarded development, Mesra Terrace comprises 40 units of semi-detached units and 4 link-houses with built-up areas starting from 3,719 to 4,333 sq.ft and four choices of layout. The client’s brief asked for a design language that expresses a grand colonial style homestead so as to provide multi-generational family living under one roof with modern adjustments. As such, versatility and privacy within the unit design were crucial during space planning stage. Occupants must be able to enjoy the advantages of multi-generation living without any encroachments to personal space. Each unit is also equipped with a private lift, especially useful for older occupants. Sustainability practices were incorporated which include an energy conservation system which channels the energy generated when running the air-conditioning to the water heating system and the infrastructure for rain water harvesting.
