Kiara Hills is an exclusive residential enclave which embraces all natural elements of the tropics in a contemporary vernacular architectural interpretation.  Located within 33 acres of a hillside in Sri Hartamas, the 88 bungalows offer a commanding view of the surrounding areas. The design explores the creation of intimate courtyards and deep verandas, linked to internal spaces providing a duality of openness and privacy.

 

Responding to the natural terrain, 5 different designs were conceived to suit their localities. Two of the designs have entrances and living spaces at road level. Two other 3 storey variants position the living spaces 1 storey above entry level. These are also varied with introduction of split level floors in one of the layout. The fifth design has the entrance on the upper most floors and descend through a series of interconnecting flow of spaces over another 2 levels.
