World's Best 2017-2018

MALAYSIA

MALAYSIA 2017-2018 TH Properties, an integrated property, project development and asset and facilities management group, has developed the award-winning TH Hotel & Convention Centre (THHCC) Kuching in Sarawak, Malaysia. It is ideally located close to Kuching International Airport. The four-star hotel incorporates the needs of the local communities by comprising an office component and convention facilities including a hall that can accommodate up to 1,090 people. It also features a Hajj complex which has been specially designed for Muslims who are planning on embarking on the pilgrimage to Mecca. The TH hotel stands nine storeys high, which increases the visibility of the building from various angles. Externally, this design gives a more dynamic and lasting impression with its distinct positioning and patterning. The regional context was another important aspect and considered at great length before finalising the underlying design principle of THHCC. The resulting building design embodies the cultural heritage of the indigenous community in Sarawak, through the adaptation of Pua Kumbu motifs into its form. Pua Kumbu is a traditional, multi-coloured hand-woven fabric made and used in Sarawak. Its rich patterns and vibrant colours are as unique as they are significant to the local community. This ethnic heritage is infused into the design of THHCC to create a timeless and synergistic blend of art and architecture. The consideration of immediate surroundings and the locality was extremely important when implementing the design, in order to allow the building’s external appearance to reflect the local culture, society and climate BEST INTERNATIONAL NEW HOTEL CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN TH Hotel & Convention Centre Kuching by TH Properties Sdn Bhd BEST NEW HOTEL CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN ASIA PACIFIC TH Hotel & Convention Centre Kuching by TH Properties Sdn Bhd BEST NEW HOTEL CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN MALAYSIA TH Hotel & Convention Centre Kuching by TH Properties Sdn Bhd 22 International Property Awards

MALAYSIA requirements. This approach resulted in a striking modern contemporary building façade that was accentuated by tropical architectural elements. Inspiration was sought from the lush tropical rainforest of the Borneo island in which THHCC Kuching is located. This not only celebrates the glorious setting of the development site, but also forms the underlying green technology and efficient living adopted by the project. The scale, design, building function, landscaping and materials are chosen to be environmentally friendly as far as possible, and also made to be conducive to the expectations of a modern, 21st century lifestyle. The final overall design of the integrated building development includes a grand lobby at the ground floor, while the lower ground floor contains public and private parking bays. The hotel’s interior design uses Islamic concepts as a guideline for the facilities areas, in terms of spatial planning and layout. This extends to common areas which are mostly divided into separate male and female facilities in order to fulfil the requirements of the adjoining Hajj complex’s patrons. All public areas take inspiration from local traditional motifsthat are commonly found in fabric etchings and mat weavings native to Sarawak. The cultural symbolism in these design patterns are further accentuated by sustainable design concepts. The Presidential Suite is the most exclusive VIP accommodation available within the hotel, with the room embracing a lavish sense of style with custom designs and fittings. Within the exclusive suite, there is a living room and dining area, an activity/lounge area, the main bedroom with a master bathroom and a smaller bedroom with twin beds and an adjoining bathroom. 2017-2018 TH Properties Sdn Bhd Level 20, Bangunan TH Selborn, 153, Jalan Tun Razak, 50400 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. t: +603-2687 3333 f: +603-2687 3322 e: info@th-properties.com w: www.th-properties.com BEST INTERNATIONAL NEW HOTEL CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN TH Hotel & Convention Centre Kuching by TH Properties Sdn Bhd BEST NEW HOTEL CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN ASIA PACIFIC TH Hotel & Convention Centre Kuching by TH Properties Sdn Bhd BEST NEW HOTEL CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN MALAYSIA TH Hotel & Convention Centre Kuching by TH Properties Sdn Bhd International Property Awards 23
