- Design Story
The development consist of the additions and changes to the existing Plaza Atrium of 23 levels. It was designed and completed by Dato Dr. Ar. Ken Yeang in 1984. The development is changing the use of the building from an office building to serviced apartments (109 units) with an extension of 34-storey serviced apartment building (54 units) to the existing building.
Extensive understanding of the existing building structure and electrical works is required to reduce demolition cost. The design team work closely to inspect and design creatively the existing building to maximise good use of space despite the change of use from commercial to serviced apartment. An interesting project indeed with an open roof bar and swimming pool literary next to Luna Bar at Pacific Regency Hotel Suites.
