T House

Kajang, Selangor, Malaysia
DualSpace Studio

Nestled in the serene locale of Kajang, Selangor, the T House is a spacious 5,000 square feet bungalow that encapsulates a tranquil retreat. Its design philosophy, a harmonious blend of simplicity and modernity, resonates through the property.

The creators at DualSpace Studio meticulously reimagined the structural dynamics, materials, and interplay of light and shadow to accentuate a sense of ritual and inclusiveness within the living spaces. The interior palette predominantly features wood, white, and grey hues, each symbolising traditional ceremonies, modern minimalism, and a natural transition, respectively.

One of the design challenges was catering to a client with colour blindness. This required innovative thinking and adjustments in colour perception in 3D visuals and images. The design emphasises light and shadow, creating a unique and personalised ambiance. Matt surface tiles were selected for the flooring to harmonise with the lighting, enhancing the diffused reflections.

A key architectural feature is the "Tianjing" concept—a five-metre atrium that directs natural light from the second floor to the first. The tea room, a favourite spot, is ingeniously designed with openings in the ceiling to allow sunlight to filter through, creating a light, airy feel. This space, along with the basement and tea room, is designed to be minimalist yet layered, enhancing the spatial coherence.
