Est May 2023
Located at the West coast of Malaysia, Ecofarm at Port Dickson is on the South of Kuala Lumpur, with a driving distance of approximately 1 hour from the city centre. With a total land area of 1.75 acres, Ecofarm PD is designed as one of the new commercial spot at Mukim Si Rusa, comprises of a double storey restaurant, a pond with dining pavilions and a souvenir shop.
Entering from Persiaran Pahlawan, visitors are welcomed with a row of palm trees along Jalan Razak. After entering the main gate, showing in visitors’ eyes are the aerial view of the buildings and a scenery of jungle due to the steep topography of the site. The buildings are orientated east-west to minimize direct sunlight as well as to allow sunset view as building backdrop. An open carpark is zoned in front of the buildings in which a drop off canopy serves as the connector between 2 main spaces, the restaurant, and the souvenir shop. Further, a man-made pond with 17 nos of dining pavilions is designed to present unique outdoor dining experience.
This project is named as “Ecofarm” because the site is surrounded by orchards and farms. Buildings are designed with brick walls, concrete floorings, thatch roofs as well as mild steels for roof structures and railings. The combination of colors of building materials are intended to present a sense of rawness, simple and countryside-look of architectural expression.
