A joyful place to be at
The designer translates the garden concept as the meeting of raw nature and the human imagination in which both seek the fulfillment of their beauty and joy. A joyful place to be at, alluding to the designer’s aspiration. This beautiful interior design and fit-out assignment won DMZ the FX International Interior Design Award 2009 in the Club and Entertainment Category.
Inspired by nature elements
Nested in the fast-growing sub-urban enclave bordering the northern perimeter of Cheras district resides one of Kuala Lumpur’s newest hospitality discoveries. Vivatel aims to be consciously different, the interior theme and fit-out of the entire hotel lives up to its claimed credentials as a ’Designer Hotel’. Exhilaration is the favored catch word to describe the fabulous interior fit-out program throughout a mesmerizing 302-Room, 18-Suite GBI (Green Building Index) certified hotel that comes complete with a grand ballroom, several meeting rooms, a Retro Cafe and a Club. DMZ who was commissioned to the project faced the challenging task of an extremely tight delivery schedule to begin with, in addition to having to design all interior fit-out elements that must be compliant with a GBI-status design brief. This warranted the adoption and use of recycled material in the likes of aluminum, melamine boards, glass and vinyl flooring. Off-site fabrication of several fit-out and case good items added to logistic challenges of the renovation works. The entire design and concept of the hotel’s themed interior and décor was inspired by Elements of Nature – wood, water, metal, fire and earth, that became the creative stimulus culminating in the lavishness of fostering every floor with different elements and remarkably, the hotel’s top floor with 40 different themed rooms!
A truly unique hospitality experience
Highly impressed with the concept of a contemporary approach towards Red Box’s themed interior concept that gelled with a visitor’s vision for his Events Hotel interior model, it took little convincing on the part of the potential client to consider hiring the professional services of DMZ to undertake this esteemed project located in Helsinki, Finland.
Huone and DMZ have unquestionably got their concept right for the Huone Events Hotel was conferred the prestigious ‘European Property Award - Interior Design: for the year 2013-2014’ naming it the Best Leisure Interior Europe.
Fine dining takes centre-stage
The interior concept whispers of contemplation, balance, peace. Lines are simple, vistas unobstructed, light abundant and the overall feel, calm. Nature has an immense influence on Japanese style, inspired by earth, wood and stone. The random tone of pinewood used in this interior with bamboo screens to match, adds up to a neutral, subdued colour balance. A pleasant departure is in the intended use of dark colours on the walls to accentuate the pale and mid-tone woods. An open, flowing sensitivity is cleverly achieved despite the assemblage of dining and built-in furniture and display cabinets, all primed in precise, regulated geometry.
The marrying of Melaka’s old charm.
The continuing success of DMZ’s retail interior space-planning
forte is further reinforced with the company being yet again
appointed with a new interior design commission – to design a new TANGS Lifestyle-concept store in the historical city of Melaka. Aptly called ’TANGS, The Shore, Melaka’ – a new level of retail experience hits town!
The marrying of Melaka’s old charm, its history, culture, art and architecture – with new expectations in the likes of upmarket highstreet retail bring about a well juxtaposed concept of blending old culture with new lifestyle indulgences, bringing forth a fusion of the eclectic with the contemporary – a design approach that DMZ is well acquainted with and profess all along.
The simplicity of the case goods design spotting a clean line minimalist design approach, complemented with carefully arranged task lighting, dynamically enhances the merchandise display. The signature style of L’Oreal’s visually-engaging merchandising strategy is once again successfully replicated in this flagship outlet.
Comfort that is found in the inner city
VOIR GALLERY at The Mines, located in Selangor’s Mines Resort City, a “family-focused” shopping mall which provides shoppers with a complete offering of retail, entertainment and dining options, offer the south of Kuala Lumpur’s city residents and customers a shopping experience to seek out the same quality of merchandise and level of shopping comfort that is found in the inner city VOIR stores.
Created with functionality and practicality in mind
Elegant in style, the floor is covered in luscious semi-lacquered strip-timber. The choice of using a raw white-washed brick wall feature as the primary vertical visual element at the Reception Area complemented with contemporary wicker chairs bring forth an exuberant ambiance reflecting warmth and freshness that is reminiscent of tropical interior spaces.
Sketched drawings exude a personal feel and touch
The sensitivity of hand-drawn lines as portrayed in this architectural perspective drawing clearly flaunts the remarkable sensuality of the line drawing; a simple line, when executed, that can achieve variable thicknesses through a single stroke to emphasize the visual impact where desired. This authenticity alone sets it significantly apart from digitally constructed drawings that you see constructed on computer screens.
Energetic interior - well designed with emphasis on natural energy sources like water, forest and sun. The floor space represented with forest zone, aqua zone and sunset zone.
A Tranquil Embrace
Adored with light, textures and natural elements, this house radiates serenity through the combination of the neutral colour scheme, vivid splashes of colour and fine finishes.
Contemporary home with tropical touch
