Putrajaya Waterfront

Malaysia City hereby presents you an approved waterfront residential development in Putrajaya, Malaysia.

[Source: World Architecture News]

The city of Putrajaya is the new administrative capital of Malaysia, a few miles south of Kuala Lumpur.

The new city is based on a system of connected islands created by overflowing a very large plantation of oil palms. The Public Administration buildings are in the centre of the islands, the residential units face the water.

“The key of the overall planning for the waterfront is the relationship to the waterfront or lakefront. Whilst the buildings on the boulevard predominantly reinforce the alignment of the boulevard, the waterfront planning should tie the boulevard back to the waterfront. The current masterplan creates large building block footprints that remain heavy a reminiscent of old American models.”

The main residential complex is conceived like a fleet of majestic Sail-Boats floating in the lagoon.

“Our conceptual approach is relative to context and tropical climate. Three factors influence our sketch planning approach: allow permeable building blocks, smaller block sizes and radiate the buildings to enhance the visual corridors and links between the boulevard and the lakefront; varying the building height of ten storey restrictions heightening at nodal points for massing hierarchy; unify the buildings by introducing a canopy roof uniquely tropical.”

The rib-like structural system forms the outer skin of the Sail-Boats and gives an important contribution to shadow the inner spaces of the various apartments without interfering with the view of the artificially created lagoon.

“The new urban plan places integration with landscaping and view as priorities. It encourages creating “fingers” of developments towards the water body and infused with park, creating a series of green forecourts.”

All the apartments face the opposite sides of the Sail-Buildings as to create bilateral ventilation, with positive bio-climatic effects.

“The urban plan suggests the building orientation and massing provide maximum view toward the water and development across the lake. The massing is broken into smaller components with different heights. This approach will ensure the integration of landscape and building massing. The landscape and public areas will be larger and located in between the building fingers, which will create an interesting “journey” towards the waterfront.”
