Expanding Horizons

At the core of the homeowner’s vision was the aspiration to expand the living spaces, focusing on enhancing the master bedroom on the first floor and the living area on the ground floor. This bold endeavor required decisive action – including demolishing the front facade and raising the roof to accommodate the envisioned extensions. Through these strategic steps, we not only maximized the available space but also set the stage for a profound architectural metamorphosis. Experience how our interior designers implement innovative space expansion solutions to achieve dramatic architectural transformations in Malaysia.

Embracing Modernity

We embarked on a transformative journey to redefine Leopaldo‘s facade, seamlessly blending sleek aluminum strips with warm timber accents. This harmonious fusion of materials not only revitalized its outward appearance but also paid homage to its rich heritage while embracing contemporary aesthetics. Witness how our interior designers expertly integrate modern facade design techniques with traditional elements to create visually stunning and culturally resonant exteriors.

Luxurious Elegance in Monochrome

To evoke a sense of opulence, we embraced a monochromatic palette of dark greys and blacks, creating a timeless allure that resonates with sophistication. Against the backdrop of Kuala Lumpur’s landscape, Leopaldo now stands as a beacon of elegance.

A Glimmering Shelter

Innovations extended beyond aesthetics, with the introduction of glass roofing over the carport. This addition not only shields against the elements but also bathes the space in natural light, seamlessly blending function with luminosity.

Flooring Reinvented

Outdated tiles made way for contemporary flooring alternatives, harmonizing the interior with the newfound modernity of the facade. Each step within Leopaldo now resonates with the promise of a renewed living experience.

Infrastructure Upgrades

Acknowledging the importance of modern amenities, we undertook comprehensive infrastructure upgrades, ensuring the longevity and safety of the home. Leopaldo now stands equipped with state-of-the-art systems, ready to embrace the demands of the future.

Gateway to Modernity

The transformation culminated with the installation of a sleek automatic gate, embodying modernity while prioritizing safety and convenience. As the final touch, it serves as a symbolic gateway to a reimagined lifestyle.


In the journey from retro to modern, our renovation of the 1970s terrace house stands as a testament to the transformative power of design. By seamlessly integrating contemporary elements with nostalgic charm, we succeeded in creating a space that not only meets the demands of modern living but also celebrates the rich heritage of its past. From expanded living spaces to luxurious finishes, every aspect of the renovation was meticulously crafted to reflect the homeowner’s vision of a dream home for the ages.
