Penang is one of the UNESCO states that constitute a unique architectural and cultural townscape without parallel anywhere in East and Southeast Asia.
The island’s architectural style is a great design inspiration from any homeowners living in this state. From contemporary to vintage design, check out these tastefully artistic homes that define Penang's diverse mix of culture and ethnicity.
1. Chic Monochrome
This charming 2 storey terrace at Irrawaddy road reflects the designer's true understanding of modern luxury. One of our favourite parts of the home is the dining area that showcases matte black furniture and pristine white walls creating a dramatic contrast to the whole room.
The monochromatic theme is extended to the kitchen area with a cabinetry system that comes with a matte black finishing. Behind the cabinet, there's a hidden door that opens up to the laundry area.

2. East Meets West
Penang is an exotic melange of old and new. With decorative elements inspired by Asian influences, this two-bedroom condominium strikes the perfect balance between Asian and the Western world.
The homeowner requested the designer to create a modern contemporary home that’s harmoniously infused with Asian decor. Throughout the home, you will find cohesive elements of oriental vases and antique furniture that echo the Asia-influenced theme in this modern English home concept. It's all about the small details and the results are breathtaking!

3. Cosy Scandinavian Home
This spacious 5-bedroom residence at Butterworth is a house inspired by Scandinavian living. Each room is decorated with indoor plants and greenery and the extensive use of soft and warm hues throughout the house creates a Zen-like and cosy atmosphere that will take the stress out of everyday life.

4. New York-style loft
This three-bedroom condo in Bukit Jambul takes design inspiration from the vibrant city of New York. The concept is achieved in this home by anchoring the light on the cooking and dining area with a statement island countertop that extends out into a dining table.
Steel, alongside other industrial materials such as iron and metal, plays an important role in conveying the raw masculinity vibe in the room. On top of that, the designer uses a monochromatic palette to give a more down-to-earth aesthetic to the home.

5. Vintage Meets Modern
This spacious home located within the upscale Tanjung Bungah neighbourhood kept some of the vintage elements found in most Malaysian residences in the 90’s like the tile floors and added some retro furniture and accessories to create an abode that’s unique to the homeowner’s personality and lifestyle.
As it is a corner unit with lots of surrounding greenery, the terrace is designed with zen landscaped garden, creating a seamless flow of the natural outdoors as part of the home.
