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.
