Steve Leung & YOO, an international interior-design company, have uncovered the designs of three units for residential project "YOO8 Serviced by Kempinski, 8 Conlay" (YOO8), the company's second collaboration and first Malaysia-based development
YOO8 is an exceptional example of refined city living, located in Kuala Lumpur's city centre, the residence provides imposing views of the iconic PETRONAS Twin Towers. The ideal location grants residents easy access to dining, shopping and transport options within the heart of the bustling city.
The residence is exceptional in design. Hints of nature are present within the units, incorporated into the finest of details to create an atmosphere that exudes both comfort and luxury.
Elements such as graphic black-and-white flooring, metal accents and patterned wall designs exemplify the immaculate coalescence of Steve Leung Designers Ltd. (SLD) modern style and YOO's lively details.
The concept behind the designs is one heavily influenced by traditional Chinese philosophy; the units were created with the intention of having a "harmony between human and nature". The ideology is evidenced in azure accents and lavish marbled surfaces, embodying the relaxing effect and elegance of flowing water. It was of great importance to Mr. Steve Leung that the units encompass these elements, particularly Wood and Water, as they symbolise purity and calmness, providing escape from the bustle of city life.
Another important aspect considered by Steve Leung & YOO was that of space. The architects emphasised the flexibility of space usage, with most units containing open or semi-open kitchens and open-plan living-rooms. Maximisation of space usage is of utmost importance in the modern-day real estate market, with buildings increasing in height and living spaces decreasing in size. The incorporation of interactive living and dining room areas ensures that every inch of space is utilised.
By merging natural elements, delicate designs and the ideas of two renowned architects, YOO8 has become the epitome of refined and energetic living.
