Retreat House



This project is to design a retreat house for an artist, Mohamad Zaki Anwar on a given site which is a slope with the north point facing the sea located in Merang Beach, Terrengganu.

The main objectives is to design according to client's uniqueness and needs, and reflects the essence of the site.


To translate the passion and source of inspiration of an artist, which is the curvature in human body, into architectural built environment. With the ambiguity, complexity, and chaos, invoke an ambience which gives a sense of pleasure. The form, need not to be expressed in terms of function, rather, it gives of a sensational feeling and the continuity of the contour. An order in the chaos nature is established when the organics is invited to mesh the nature.
