Cohesively joining two apartment buildings while maintaining natural light.

Positivematic Building


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

With the aim of creating a usable space between two adjacent apartment buildings even in inclement weather, we created a tensioned membrane structure which combines PVC barrel vault, conical and shade sail structures.

In addition to the membrane elements, clear glass sections make best use of natural light.

Combining the different building elements while avoiding the complexity of retro fitting to existing buildings required some innovative thinking.

The end result is a structure which is both efficient in design, manufacturing and installation.
