The Dorsett Waterfront Subang is a mixed commercial development located in the town centre of Subang Jaya. An extension project of three tower blocks to the existing Dorsett Grand Hotel Subang, it is situated along Jalan SS12/1, next to the Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) and fronting the panoramic lake of the Subang Ria Recreational Park.
Inspired by the neighbouring context of the recreational park as the township’s green lung, the proposed design strives to achieve equilibrium between the peaceful nature and lively habitable dwelling. Lead by the harmonious design approach; the architectural language has been applied and derived throughout the development where residents would be able to enjoy the best of nature and modern lifestyle.
The development comprises 1,989 service-suite units in the three main blocks of 21 storeys, to be available in 10 different layout design including two duplex layout variations. The lifestyle facilities and common amenities for the residents will be located on two floors at Level 4 and ground floor respectively.
Keeping with the modern contemporary style, the façade design unifies the suite frontage and scales it into a single architectural expression. Highlighted by the portal frame feature, the façade design is shaped by the linear pattern arrangement of the suite units. Some of the façade units are scaled to the height of three-floor levels at a random sequence, providing a vertical and distinctive quality, while still maintaining the character of the overall building.
