Le Nouvel KLCC By Wing Tai
Le Nouvel KLCC is designed by the Pritzker prize winner, Jean Nouvel. Pritzker prize is the Nobel Prize equivalent in Architecture. Often referred to as “The Master of Light”, this master architect from french is considered one of the top five architects in the world, and is known for his magnificent designs that involves the blending of light with glass or steel.
Qualities Of An Icon
Jean Nouvel has also been the creative visionary behind such remarkable fetes as the French Embassy in Berlin, the Quai Branly Museum in Paris, and the Arab World Institute in France. His latest project, Le Nouvel KLCC, is being constructed by the world class firm, Ssangyong Engineering & Construction from South Korea, the same engineers and contractors responsible for the world-famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore.
Le Nouvel KLCC is located on 1.4 acres of the most hard-to-come-by land within the prime Kuala Lumpur City Centre enclave, along Jalan Ampang and directly across the street from the majestic twin Petronas Towers, Suria KLCC and KLCC Train Station. This prime location is one of the most sought after addresses in all of KLCC, further adding on to the property’s charm as a top calibre luxury residence.
Le Nouvel KLCC has a variety of floor plans ranging between 1,810 and 2,832 sqft. There will only be a mere 197 total units available for purchase, so interested buyers are already showing signs of great interest. Of particular appeal is the exterior curtain wall system which implements a glass printing method to create the illusion of a vine pattern. Le Nouvel also included specific positions on the residence’s exterior face where hedges and foliage could be grown on the exterior of many of the 49 floors, giving the residential complex a very intriguing look of a building shrouded in hedging plants as it reflects against the many different angles of light and shadow. The architect has introduced a lot of unique architectural concepts that require specialists to implement, including a thirty-tonnes sky bridge that spans 23m long, connecting the 34th floors of both towers. Forged with the architect’s trademark use of aluminum and glass, this suspended structure will mirror that of the Petronas Towers. Plenty of additional time and resources are spent to ensure that the twin towered Le Nouvel KLCC will be the most iconic high-end residential property in KLCC.
