SENTUL East & West
The future of business architecture in
KL city’s newest commercial address

Si ing on a prominent street corner with its signage
standing proud amidst expressive greens - d7, the first
commercial building completed in Sentul East is part
of a master plan conceived to rejuvenate the rhythm,
colours and character of Sentul.

Historically, Jalan Sentul has been lined
with thriving businesses housed in old
shophouses that gave the street its
characteristic appearance. Very li le has
changed over the years. But this is all
starting to change as tracts of undeveloped
land in the area are being developed for
commercial use.

At the end of the street where Jalan Sentul
meets Sentul Link, d7, newly completed,
offers some interesting diversions away
from the old buildings. RT+Q Architects
from Singapore designed this U-shaped
seven-storey over basement structure in an
inspiration from the historical context of
the site and its surroundings.

Rising gently from street level to an elevated
platform, the building is positioned to take
in the full views of street activities. The
building front features an interesting
landscape buffer which serves to soften the
building’s bold character, thus se ing the
tone for a refreshing environment to work
and play.

            Right Along the traditional main street
            where friendly sidewalks did not exist
            anywhere prior to this, a wide sidewalk
            now intermingles with trees and lawns
            to encourage people to walk, and to enjoy
            their walk.

next generation in mind.

d7. Designed to be ahead of its time.
Building form
The building is a plastic, continuous, malleable and meandering
architectural form. This reflects RT+Q’s idea that architecture is
in essence a sculptural 3-dimensional urban construct.

Spatial idea
The concept is to design a low-rise office building around a
courtyard in order for it to have an unusual communal, social and
residential character. The courtyard comprises gardens and
communal spaces. It also provides for an abundance of natural
light, shade and ventilation amidst the tropical weather of

Facade character
The facade is intentionally bold, flat, simple, and severe. The idea
was to create a different, strong and unified facade for d7 amidst
the mess of the existing urban squalor in Sentul. Its metallic and
grey characteristics were intended as a contrast to the prevailing

Fenestration concept
The L-shaped windows reflect the inter-locking spatial character
of the office suites. As office buildings are normally uniform and
homogeneous in form and character, the uneven shapes of the
windows at d7 were also intended to differentiate the interior
environment of each and every office. This provides for an
individual identity for each office.

Social agenda
The central courtyard, the ‘forum’, is the most important space
at d7. It was designed for social and commercial integration.
Outdoor seating, landscaping, patios, transparent lifts and sky
bridges were created for ‘residents’ to experience and enjoy this
unique urban experience.

                  The low-rise blocks offer a limited choice of maisonne es (duplex units). From the

                  In a city awash with more skyscrapers rising to stake claims to economic prowess,
                  creativity and innovation, it is a refreshing change to find one that takes a different
                  view on things. Like the spice capers (Capparis spinosa) which refers to the incredible,
                  tiny and hard-to-develop Mediterranean buds that are unequalled in flavour when
                  used expertly, a new vitality is achieved when all pertinent aspects of architecture
                  and building design are blended harmoniously.

       Penang-born and Singapore-based architect Rene Tan has very much been a part of the growth
       of Sentul’s master plan. It all started with Sentul East’s first commercial development, d7, and
       just across the street, d6, which is in the midst of completion. The Capers was next, given his
       continuing focus on the regeneration of the East.

       From the onset, Rene had always known that architecture would be his passion. He pursued
       his dreams by first obtaining his degrees in the USA – Bachelor of Arts at Yale University and
       Master of Architecture in Princeton University. From there, Rene has been keeping busy not
       only with growing his credentials but also dedicating his time to nurturing future architects
       through teaching assignments at Berkeley University, National University of Singapore and
       most recently at University of Hong Kong.

       Today, Rene is one of the directors and founders of RT+Q Architects Pte Ltd, a well-known
       Singapore firm that has contributed much to Singapore’s skyline as well as Malaysia’s.
       Rene has also been recognised by his peers, winning awards in the Singapore Institute of
       Architects Design Awards and the URA President’s Design Award 2009. His latest credentials
       include being voted as one of the top 20 under-45 architects in Singapore.

With the boundaries between work and play blurring, home offices at Centrio will increasingly
be where the younger generation will spend some of their most valuable and productive hours.

Market response has been excellent after its completion and handing over of vacant possession
to property owners in July 2010. In the secondary market, recently transacted units averaged

launch price of between RM280.00 to RM350.00 per square foot.

                      Southern Integrated Transportation Terminal
                      New transportation hub incorporates connectivity and streamlines mass transit.

                      The Southern Integrated Transportation Terminal located at Bandar Tasik Selatan is an exciting
                      new transportation hub poised to take public transportation to a new level. This new facility
                      further enhances connectivity for the Lake Fields community, it being just one station away from
                      the Sungai Besi LRT Station. Its two access points are from the Sungai Besi Highway (Besraya)
                      and Middle Ring Road II.

                      The RM570 million transportion hub is located on a 19.8-hectare site adjacent to the Tasik Selatan
                      LRT station and the Tasik Selatan KTM Komuter station. It has a capacity of handling about
                      40,000 passengers a day, with a comfort level similar to an airport terminal. There is 2.8 sq m
                      per person in the terminal compared to 2.3 sq m per person in an airport.

                      The terminal combines bus and taxi services with three operating integrated rail transportation
