About Menara Felda, Platinum Park

The Platinum Park development, of which Menara Felda is a part, is situated directly to the east of the Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC), and connected by several acres of park area. Menara Felda is sited within this new complex. The tower itself presents a curving and dynamic form, inspired by the client’s desire to display a progressive image and to emphasize the negative space between the new tower and its context. Cut into the oval shape of the floor plates are balconies which twist around the façade of the building, breaking the pattern of the cladding.

The façade also incorporates horizontal sunshades to minimize direct solar gain while increasing indirect daylighting. The podium of the building houses a ten-story parking garage which is intended to be covered in full-height planted green walls on two faces, countering the heat and exhaust emitted from the cars within. The planted walls along with the street-level landscaping connect directly to the core park area at the center of the complex, and to KLCC beyond.
