The Loke Thye Kee Residences lie in the heart of one of Malaysia’s UNESCO world sites, Georgetown Penang.  Drawing inspiration from the heritage of Georgetown and the historic Loke Thye Kee restaurant, MOD has also delicately added their own contemporary flavour to modernise each of the 5 suites, garden forcourt and balcony.

“The suites areare furnished with soaring pitch roofs and all suites are well appointed with living areas and full facility pantry spaces.The traditional meets the contemporary on several levels, traditional timber hardwood floors are contrasted with customized contemporary fixtures that are designed to appear as if levitating. The rough texture of the original brick walls are visually enlivened by hidden LED cove lighting and the typically enclosed vanity and wardrobe spaces are celebrated as transparent glass boxes which seamlessly extend into the rest of the room.MOD also designed all the branding and in-room collateral in order to provide a holistic experience, ranging from a quirky pillow menu, to a food map navigating the area’s street food, the room service menu, TV menu etc. The artwork was specially commissioned for the project and it reflects the spirit of historic Penang framed in a modern way.”
