Project: The Manor, Malaysia
With only three units, the Manor project comprises three-storey bungalows with stylish aerofoil roofs and eco-friendly features, including beautiful green landscaping, energy-saving solar panels, and large glass panels for natural lighting and ventilation. Each bungalow is furnished with a luxurious kitchen, and high quality materials were imported to reflect an exclusive lifestyle at Codrington Avenue on Penang Island.
NB Tropics, a subsidiary company of the New Bob Group, had it all thought out. These bungalows are equipped with energy- and water-saving fittings, which encourage green practices on a daily basis to reduce carbon footprint. Rainwater harvesting, for example, takes place on the roof garden located on the second floor. The roof garden provides natural insulation; as a result, it reduces the homeowners’ dependence on and long-hour usage of home utilities, including heaters and air-conditioners. Homeowners are able to enjoy better air quality in a safe environment. The bungalows are also equipped with alarms and CCTV systems.
Design-wise, the open-concept bungalows feature unique double-height living rooms, and ultra-modern, streamlined kitchens.
Green certified materials were used in the construction. Completed in 2013, the project was awarded the first GreenRE Platinum project certification in Malaysia. It also received a BCA Green Mark Gold Plus Award from the Singapore Ministry of National Development.
