You could say that Le Nouvel KLCC is an icon in the making, located in Kuala Lumpur’s prestigious Golden Triangle. Since its launch, bespoke homes in this world-class residential building have been coveted by high-net-worth individuals near and far. Much of its status can be attributed to the synergy between four world-renowned experts in their field of expertise; architect Jean Nouvel, botanist Patrick Blanc, interior designer Koichiro Ikebuchi and lighting designer Hervé Descottes. The four talents have converged to create Le Nouvel KLCC the benchmark in luxury living.
With the world’s tallest twin towers, the Petronas Twin Towers, sitting majestically across the residence, the walk between the two landmarks could take less than a minute. Kuala Lumpur’s sole luxury residential building boasting this enviable address in Jalan Ampang is met with bold and ingenious design elements throughout its spacious homes.
Architecture by Pritzker Prize winner Jean Nouvel
Le Nouvel KLCC is a masterpiece designed in pursuit of the French architect seeking to capture Kuala lumpur’s unique urban identity. The residential building is intended to replicate the energy and composition of the Petronas Twin Towers while remaining in harmony with its surroundings. This natural harmony can be seen in its facade where Nouvel has abandoned a traditional, structured style and opted instead for a streamlined approach, enabling Le Nouvel KLCC to provide an elevated flair to city living through creative interpretations of space.
A vertical garden by Patrick Blanc
Hailed as the pioneer of vertical gardens, French botanist Patrick Blanc has tapped into Malaysia’s fitting climate for perpetual greenery by suiting up a tropical green coat for Le Nouvel KLCC. When admired from afar, the lush foliage appears intertwined with the building itself. Serene and unequivocally unique as a towering vertical garden, Le Nouvel KLCC is akin to a green lung in the heart of the city.
Interior design by Koichiro Ikebuchi
The winner of the 2009 Singapore Presidential Design Award, Koichiro Ikebuchi is well respected for his works rooted in the synthesis of life and nature. With Le Nouvel KLCC, the prolific Japanese interior designer weaved this essence into the interiors through the use of natural materials like wood, rock, bamboo and paper. At the same time, his design principle is loyal to Nouvel’s ultimate vision to present a living space that is minimalistic and practical, yet lively and chic.
Lighting design by Hervé Descottes
American lighting designer Hervé Descottes lends his expertise by ensuring every ray of light that comes through the windows has been thoughtfully planned to conceive a sanctuary of peace amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Based on the concepts of time, emotion, art and vigour, the interiors of Le Nouvel KLCC are a testament to Descottes’ interpretation of these elements. Time consuming and finished to his exacting standard, Le Nouvel KLCC is his oeuvre and one that can’t be imitated elsewhere.
