The comprehensive and design-conscious living space at Aira Residence will enchant you.
In the 1960s, Selangor Properties Berhad (SPB) acquired 405 hectares of rubber plantation land on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur and pioneered a fivephase development plan for this area – which begot its name from the Damansara River flowing through it. In the ensuing decades, a gradual flowering of lavish bungalows has taken place, turning the leafy residential enclave of Damansara Heights into one of Kuala Lumpur’s stylish addresses. More recently, SPB announced its first luxury development project in over a decade with Aira Residence,
utilising one of its last remaining – and choicest – parcels of land.
The project features two residential towers rising beyond the hilltop on Jalan Batai to command unfettered panoramas of the outlying districts and of Kuala Lumpur City Centre.
Aira Residence’s preliminary release of 105 units from Tower A offers spacious accommodation starting at 2,679sqft up to 7,730sqft (average price of RM1,700 per square foot). Ground floor units include a private pool and lawn, while penthouses include private gardens and a jacuzzi.
With a name originating from the Arabic word meaning ‘ breath of life’, the emphasis has been to employ high design and intuitive functionality to personify Aira Residence. For this purpose, the developer has seamlessly merged three top talents in the field of design namely, Piet Boon for its interiors, Franklin Po for landscapes and Alen Nikolovski for architecture. Brian Newman, director for property at SPB, says this collaboration is important in realising the develop er’s goal of building Kuala Lumpur’s most luxurious condominium project, one that “fuses classic European styling with Asian functionality”.
As Newman describes: “Aira Residence offers spaces to relax and contemplate like Franklin Po’s beautifully designed Tranquillity Gardens (a meditation garden with pergolas on ponds), and the sophisticated spaces found in Piet Boon’s Aira Lounge reminiscent of a swanky hotel lobby.”
Cue the lavish interior designs, in which potential homeowners are offered a chance to personalise their units through a range of styling options by award-winning Amsterdam-based design studio Piet Boon. These choices include colour palettes for wall, floor and

Owners may also specify biometric fire safes, smart home systems and CCTV packages as part of a hasslefree bespoke solution.
To ensure maximum privacy, each unit is accessed through private lift lobbies, with a threecar garage fitted with electric car charging, automated roller shutters and separate rooms for drivers and bodyguards. Leading security consultants were engaged to conceive passive and active systems with motionsensor perimeter fencing and intercom links from each apartment to the lobby lounge.
Newman says. “With Aira Residence, we want to offer something unique and irreplaceable – like a Picasso painting, the Florentine diamond or a delicate Ming vase.” airaresidence.com ≠
