International accolades for Malaysian architecture


A meticulously designed development over the resplendent waters off Port Dickson has done the country proud by winning major awards at an international property competition.

The development, a high-end resort known as The Legend International Water Homes, took the "Best Architecture" and "Best Development" titles at the CNBC International Property Awards 2007 held in London recently.

Developed by Kuala Lumpur Metro Group (KL Metro) subsidiary Kuala Lumpur Metro Development Sdn Bhd, the resort comprising 166 "water homes" and 44 "garden homes" is located about 2km from Port Dickson town in Negeri Sembilan, and is readily accessible via the North-South Expressway.

The resort is a series of waterfront chalets, with each unit having its own private pool, an open air garden inspired by Balinese tradition, five-star standard finishing and furnishings using granite, hardwood timber and teakwood.

Construction of the second phase of the project commenced in November 2006 and is scheduled for completion in December next year.

KL Metro managing director Datuk Low Tak Fatt said the recognition will inspire the group to come up with more innovative designs for its future high-end resort developments.

The CNBC International Property Awards, sponsored by media giant CNBC Europe, a financial and business news channel, and supported by more than 10 professional bodies, including the International Real Estate Federation (Fiabci) and British Interior Design Association, attracted widespread participation.

The aim of the competition is to distinguish the highest levels of achievement in a range of propertyrelated fields in various categories, including best interior design, best architecture and best development.

The winners, from no less than 40 countries, received their awards from British Member of Parliament Eric Pickles, who is the Shadow Secretary for Local Government and chairman of the judging panel.
