A Who’s Who of Architects and Designers
Led by Principal Hud Bakar, RSP Architects’ epic design for 8 Conlay is guided by the Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang. The architecture gives poetic form to the Chinese symbol for the number “eight”, paying tribute to 8 Conlay’s illustrious address.
Founded by John Hitchcox and Philippe Starck in 1999, YOO is an international design studio that enhances the way people live, love and play through original design. Fronted by visionary talents such as Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders, Jade Jagger, Kelly Hoppen, Steve Leung and YOO Studio, the diversity of the YOO design offering is part of the philosophy of creating original, design-led communities that respect the way individuals choose to live.
Seen in upscale hotels, restaurants and offices all over the world, Kelly Hoppen’s boldly modern aesthetic has also graced the homes of celebrities such as David Beckam, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. For her outstanding contribution to interior design, Kelly Hoppen was made an MBE by Queen Elizabeth II in 2008. Her design for YOO8 is defined by two main design concepts: Urban and Spring.
Urban: Appealing to the inner cosmopolitan, Urban exudes understated glamour by spotlighting linear muted tones and chic materials such as taupe stone, dark timber flooring and specialist plaster finishes.
Spring: The green-focused Spring concept spaces, meanwhile, make the most of neutral materials, weathered surfaces, unbleached fabrics, deep pile carpets and milky-white glass, promoting a feeling of harmony and calm.
Much thought has been put in to the architecture and design of 8 Conlay, with impressive landscaping work done by TROP, a top landscape design firm led by Harvard-educated Thai designer Pok Kobkongsanti. Residents can relax at the Water Lounge on the 26th storey – an oasis of ripple pools inspired by the Malaysian rainforest with pod-like cabanas and a 25m lap pool, or enjoy the Green Refuge located on the 44th storey – a multi-tiered park in the city, it evokes Balinese rice terraces while boasting an elevated jogging path, resting nooks and the best view in the city.
8 Conlay is the maiden project of KSK Land Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of KSK Group Berhad, an established Malaysian investment holding company. With existing presence in the general insurance business across Southeast Asia with KSK Insurance Indonesia and KSK Insurance (Thailand) Public Co. Ltd., KSK Group expanded into the property development market in Malaysia with KSK Land.
Led by its Managing Director Joanne Kua, who is also the Group Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of KSK Group, KSK Land is making a name for itself as a dynamic new player on the international property development scene, and 8 Conlay truly reflects the company’s aspirations in delivering bespoke properties that prioritise design, craftsmanship and lifestyle.
