Winning the Show Unit during the 2011 Malaysian Interior Design Awards for the Residential category, the interior open air concept of the 6 Western Avenue in Penang, Malaysia, combines a comfortable home ambiance with luxurious resort-style living. Designed by Blu Water Studio, this sculptural collection of spaces depict an out-of-the-ordinary elegance. Described by its creators, the stunning interiors sound like this: “A modern take on traditional style furniture completes an elegant, but soothing overall design character. The living room features casual, modern furniture, with sleek and clean lines, and allows its users to feel completely at home and seamless with the nature that surrounds them.
A contrast between the bright warm hues and textures with the dark modern straight lines of the wooden furniture truly inspires a deep sense of serenity. Local indigenous hardwood is displayed throughout the interior in various ways. Implemented on wall panels to create a coziness, as well as to help separate living areas when used as vertical screens. The master bedroom, with its high-sloped double volume ceiling maintains a resort style feel. Traditional pieces of artifacts are placed above the headboard to crown the four-poster bed. Textural detailing determines the laid-back character of the private sitting area with landscaped garden views, emphasizing the overall sense of connection between interior spaces and outdoor nature.” What’s your favorite detail?
